The Bare Bones shredded for a small but intimate audience at The Crux on March 24. By the end of the band's set, even the wine drinkers in the back were tapping their toes to The Bones’ hard, fast rock.

Even though the Boise group isn’t well known, it has a loyal cadre of fans who shuffled to The Bones’ beats.

A pair of superfans, Charlotte Verrinder and Krystal Moore, cut up The Crux’s hardwood floors for the whole set. Moore, who called herself “jinglebritches,” said she couldn’t help herself while the band was playing.

“It just makes you dance,” Verrinder said.

“Music is good when you can’t help but dance,” Moore added.

Though turnout for The Bare Bones was small, members were happy to play Treefort.

“I feel honored. Treefort was rumored back in December and we had doubts we were going to play,” said Aaron Bossart, the Bones’ drummer.

The Bare Bones, which got its start last summer, isn’t yet well known in Boise, but members say turnout for shows is increasing.

“We’re working on it,” said singer Chris Brock.
