Viva le Vox Celebrate New CD at Respectable Street

Thinking outside the Vox.

Freaks and fans alike can brace themselves for Lake Worth act Viva le Vox's upcoming CD-release party, a spectacle some might refer to as a "hillbilly zombie circus." Freaks aside, the band is a local work of art worth checking out if you want to feel scared and uncomfortable yet longing for more once the show ends.

Viva le Vox puts on a Vaudeville-esque horror show, producing a sound similar to gravelly swamp rock mixed with a stage presence that'll leave you asking, "Did he really just spit in his bandmate's eye?" At first glance, the quartet resembles a traveling carnival troupe of zombies ungracefully strumming spoons down a washboard or dry-humping an upright bass. Beyond the ghoulish appearance and outward acts of self-aggression is a band with soul, passion, and the amazing ability to connect with a crowd — even if that crowd is stunned. Lead singer Tony Bones belting out ghastly, energetic songs like "Better Off Dead" and "Down at the Laundromat" is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

The new CD, Wayward Ones, compiles several songs that did not make the group's Desperation Alley release, as well as a few live tracks from a show played in Erie, Pennsylvania. As an added bonus, the ticket price includes a copy of the CD, and they're giving away free cupcakes. Recommendation: Eat the cupcakes before the band performs.


Viva le Vox, with the Royal Tinfoil and Everymen. 9 p.m. Saturday, June 19, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Tickets cost $10. Call 561-832-9999, or click here.
