Fanfarlo's bassist gets big air at the WFNX House
Band of Skulls
Lindsay Lohan didn't stop by the WFNX Sapporo House at Coachella yesterday, but pretty much everyone else did. And we'd like to give a special shout-out to FANFARLO -- whom we'd have ranked as the least likely band to strip to their skivvies and jump in our pool, although that's exactly what they did.
Just before their sold-out gig at the Paradise the other night, BAND OF SKULLS dropped by the WFNX studios to rip through a couple of songs, sans-amplification. These versions of "Sweet Sour" and "Bruises"? Still more evidence that they can rip your head off -- with or without a Marshall stack.

We stumbled into WFNX honcho MIKE TIERNEY at a couple of shows in Austin, and we must've been pretty shitfaced, because apparently we asked him to write something for the Phoenix this week. Not to worry: the man's got impeccable taste in about-to-become-volcanic alt-radio bangers. You can read his piece in this week's issue or right here online.
