Before they performed “My Body’s a Zombie For You” with a children’s choir, a Vaudevillian opened the show. He cut out the words “Dead Man’s Bones” into a blank folded piece of paper with a scissor. Neat!

Ryan Gosling: Dead Man’s Bones Documentary!
The tour goes on all month and kicks off @ 8PM at Middle East on Wednesday (October 14) in Cambridge, Mass.
Check out the promo below — it involves a dog popping a bunch of balloons! Here’s the vid’s description: “We have been severely influenced by the works of [actor] Jan Michael Vincent and early [philosopher/ novelist] Jean Paul Sartre and I guess this our way of saying “thank-you” to all those who stood for something real and several things unreal. For all the Lou Diamond Phillips of the world who can step out in faith and say ‘please show my date the way out, quick’! This is for you.”
Ryan Gosling: Dead Man’s Bones Tour!
Pitchfork reports, “The actor/musician duo will bring the songs from their band’s self-title debut album to life with the help of a local choir in each of the twelve spots they’re hitting. Their album was recorded with the Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir but they can’t bring all those kids on the road with them. Hence, a new group in every city.”
The opening act for the shows will be a talent show, organized by the band and featuring local talent in each city. Amazing! Check out the tour promo video below. It’s almost exactly like one of those videos you watch before you enter a haunted mansion at an amusement park!
