Guttermouth, Authority Zero and Piñata Protest chose to lay down their roots in classic punk before putting their own twists and turns on the genre. Co-headliners Guttermouth and Authority Zero will be joined by Piñata Protest on Thursday at House of Rock. Doors are at 8 p.m.
Guttermouth, heavily influenced by the Los Angeles/Orange County punk scenes of the 1980s, has been coupling humorously sarcastic/offensive lyrics with its own style of fast punk tempos and outrageous stage behavior since 1988. The Huntington Beach, Calif., group, led by singer Mark Adkins, has maintained a steady touring schedule even though their last album came out in 2006.
Authority Zero’s aim has been to make music that pays homage to the punk forefathers while not being limited by the genre. After 18 years and eight albums, the Mesa, Ariz., group has dabbled in reggae, rock and skate punk and released its latest album “The Tipping Point” in 2013.
Piñata Protest skillfully melds traditional Mexican-American border music with the old-school punk to create a bilingual, accordion-fronted mashup that rocks fiercely. The San Antonio group released its second album “El Valiente” in 2013.
