The Venomous Pinks is a quartet of girls, ready to break the rules. As one of the only all girl rock bands in the Phoenix area, they will break your heart and bust your balls. Influenced by Joan Jett and The Ramones, these four talented musicians channel a unique sound that is rock and roll with attitude. With Drea Doll on guitar/vocals, Gaby Kaos on guitar/bass/vocals, Corrie Zazzera on guitar and Jewlz on drums, this foursome of musicians will intoxicate you with their tantalizing talent, high energy, and no holds barred attitude. With their salacious sound, they’ve cultivated quite the following, causing crowds to line up at national shows. Putting on a presentation that showcases their gregarious girl power, this band leaves audiences wanting more. This foursome is well on the way to becoming one of the hottest bands around.

Fairy Bones is back… and they’re having 0% Fun.
After surviving 2017, Fairy Bones reemerged battle-hardened and a little less mentally stable with their triumphant second album, 0% Fun (2018). Taking the “sophomore slump” in stride, the Phoenix-based brash pop-rockers made sure to disappoint everyone this time around.
NPR said the album “showcases the band’s ability to write catchy ear-worms driven by the unapologetic spirit and vocals of Chelsey Louise” while Java Magazine hailed it as “unsettling, beautiful, and powerful all at once.” Impose popped in to declare it “energetic and vibrant.”
If their debut album Dramabot (2015) was a doe-eyed freshman eager for experiences, then 2018’s 0% Fun is the debt-ridden graduate, desperately laughing through the chaos of modern existence.
After three years of lighting up the stage as support for acts like Highly Suspect, St Lucia, Marcy Playground, Fuel, Mother Mother, Rozwell Kid, and KONGOS, Fairy Bones was ready for a new approach to being the punk rock underdogs of the digital age, which is on brilliant displayed in their DIY music videos, marketing, independent tour booking, style, and imagery.
What began as a lyrically intimate dissection of personal thoughts and feelings, the new album quickly took on an upbeat and often wildly sarcastic look at one woman’s journey through her twenties. Touching on themes of anxiety, depression, and the pressures of maintaining the perfect Instagram-facade 0% Fun inadvertently echoed the same thoughts and feelings felt around the nation throughout 2017.
Fairy Bones released 0% Fun on February 23, 2018 and it’s available now wherever music is sold. Catch them touring national throughout 2018.
