Tuesday: Fairy Bones – Killing Me
After being named “Best Local Band” of 2015 by Phoenix New Times, the group of colorful misfits has been lighting up the stage as support for KONGOS, St Lucia, Mother Mother, Marcy Playground, Fuel, Alien Ant Farm, and Kyle Gass Band. Paste declared Fairy Bones a “four-piece art/glam/rock monster” while praising lead singer Chelsey Louise’s “incomparable pipes,” which they noted, “Few rock voices today can compare, of any gender.”
Imagine epic, dramatic alternative-pop songs sent out to the back rows of a stadium by a charismatic force of nature who could more than hold her own against whatever Florence Welch could throw her way, sharing space on a stunning debut with songs that filter lofty art-rock sensibilities through the reckless abandon of punk.
That was “Dramabot,” the debut album with which Fairy Bones confirmed their standing on the front ranks of the Phoenix music scene. Together with Bob Hoag (The Format, Scary Kids Scaring Kids), tucked away at the infamous Flying Blanket Studio, Fairy Bones managed to craft an album that surpassed all of their wildest expectations.
They are now coming back into the proverbial spotlight with the release of their single “No One Can Suffer Like I Can” and giving fans a taste of what to expect in 2018 with their sophomore album, “0% Fun.” Check out Fairy Bones music video for “Killing Me” below and follow em on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Wednesday: Bear Ghost – Necromancin’ Dancin’
Bear Ghost is a rock band from Phoenix, AZ that fuses intricate musicianship, melodies and song structure to deliver a one of a kind sound. Since the release of the band’s first full album entitled “Blasterpiece“, the Phoenix market has taken notice.
Bear Ghost has quickly become one of the area’s favorite bands and “Blasterpiece” has received high critical acclaim, winning the market’s Album Of The Year for 2016 from the Phoenix New Times, despite its February release date.
“Blasterpiece” was written and performed by Bear Ghost and recorded by Jeremy Parker at Premier Studios. Parker, a Grammy winning engineer and holder of many other industry awards, also recorded the band’s debut EP entitled “Your Parents Are Only Marginally Disappointed In Your Musical Taste” released in 2014.

Thursday: SRRY – Eyes Right
We are SRRY, a band formed between a few friends wanting to write music and be creative here in Phoenix. Our sound comes from a lot of different influences anywhere from 80’s bands like Pet Shop Boys, Information Society, to modern indie pop like LANY, The Strike, Joan. We have an indie synth pop feel and write songs about falling in and out of love.
We just released our first song “Eyes Right” who we worked with producer and mix engineer Matt Huber (Joan, Knox Hamilton) and we are also currently in the studio recording and writing more songs coming out early 2019.
