Doctor Bones is an avant-pop mixture of new wave and punk, with an ear for dynamic tension, emotional swells, and dance inducing beats. Doctor Bones is a culmination of the pop lessons learned from The Cars, Talking Heads, Oingo Boingo, Joy Division and Andy Kaufman.
From a sold out September 2011 premiere to their critically acclaimed performance at the SXSW Arizona Showcase, Doctor Bones is arguably the fastest rising band in the Southwest.
A live show by Doctor Bones is an impassioned, energetic, and visually stimulating experience. Vocalist Anthony Fama puts himself into a trance-like state; dancing, convulsing, and writhing while Jess Pruitt and Chad Stark assault the audience with a flurry of hair, sweat and guitars. All the while vocalist/keyboardist/violinist Hannah Bones serenades you with painfully sweet melodies over tight, dynamic grooves laid down by frenetic drummer Mike Vigil.
A Doctor Bones show ends with Anthony in a semi-conscious heap amongst the crowd, with everyone in the band heaving, glistening and drained of strength. The crowd clamoring for one last dance and Doctor Bones slowly rising to give it to them. [+]
