Voodoo Glow Skulls & Authority Zero at HoR Thursday, Feb. 23

The Black Coffee and White Knuckles Tour will make a stop at House of Rock this Thursday with headliners Voodoo Glow Skulls and Authority Zero!

With over twenty years of existence, Voodoo Glow Skulls have released seven albums, sold one million records, performed in Brazil and Japan, opened a record store, started a record label, recording studio and a music venue, this band continues to tour and bring their fans the music they love and recognize.

Their West Coast ska-core sound has influenced bands such as Sublime and No Doubt. They created a unique sound of mixing rock, hardcore punk, traditional ska, tough guitar riffs and Mexican music of their roots, which made it difficult for others to duplicate.

Authority Zero is a punk rock band from Mesa, Arizona. ‘Stories of Survival’ is the band’s fourth album release that will start their tour off in Japan and ending in the U.S. Authority Zero has been compared to Rage Against the machine because of their vast energy during a live performance, along with the soundings of Sublime and Bad Religion. The band has been on tour with NOFX, Alkaline Trio, and Sum 41. They even were on Warped Tour and Punk-O-Rama.

Skyfox and Stoned will also be performing. Doors are at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at HoR, Disc-Go-Round, or our online box office.
