- Event Details
- Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Boneless Children Foundation's music ranges from simple, poetic creations, to hard-hitting punk rock sideshows. Born & raised in St. Louis, Missouri, San Francisco transplant David Sophia Siegel leads his band of musical malcontents through the twists and turns of the perilous environment of rock music today, playing a music described by the SF Weekly as "notoriously Dead Milkmen-esque." This group has developed a unique sound that draws comparison to The Talking Heads, The Police, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, and the Who. "Beautiful compositions reflective of 60's pop and folk sang with current harmonies that burn themselves into memory. Their melodies are memorable and beg for a sing along. Their lyrics lend themselves to darker subjects and sang with hopeful enthusiasm. They have been growing throughout the Bay Area, and were introduced to us through our friends at Local Bay Area Music! Great find!" -Bill O'Brien SaveAlternative.com Former "crumb" frontman Robby Cronholm is the emotional motor that drives the band Taxes. Robby formed "crumb" in Southern California, and at the age of nineteen signed with Qwest/Warner Bros. and released "Romance is a Slow Dance." The release of the record led to "crumb" touring with such top tier acts as "Jimmy Eat World," "Death Cab for Cutie," and a slot on that year's Lollapalooza festival tour. Eventually "crumb" disbanded and Robby waited a few years before forming what is now arguably the second greatest Rock band of all time: Taxes. After enlisting the services of Berklee College of Music grad Brad Harbidge on drums and Cincinnati transplant and keyboardist extraordinaire Tristan Eckerson, the trio spent the next year writing and rehearsing the songs that would eventually appear on their debut EP. The trio then recruited the effects- driven, creative guitar sounds of New Zealand native Josh White and solid, "in the pocket" bass skills of New Yorker Jonathan Kepke. With the group now fully formed, Taxes headed for the studio. Having known John Vanderslice for many years, Robby decided to record the EP at John's seminal Indie Rock studio Tiny Telephone, located in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District. Vanderslice recommended one of his top producers for the project. Laura Dean, having worked with artists such as Amanda Palmer, The Frail, and John Vanderslice, was the perfect woman for the job. The band recorded six songs over a period of a month, all of which will appear on their forthcoming EP "This is Going to End Badly."
