Voodoo Glow Skulls, Piñata Protest
 
FORTHELOVEOFPUNK
  • fortheloveofpunk
Since ’88, Riverside’s Voodoo Glow Skulls has combined ska horn lines with Golden State pop punk. Active since ’09, the self-described mojado punks of Piñata Protest released their best effort yet in 2013 with the El Valiente EP. Like a lot of great punk works, El Valiente is under 20 minutes of speed and teeth-gritting guitar intensity. But unlike most punk, Piñata Protest integrates the two-step accordion rhythms of Norteño into their tunes, helping to land the SA four-piece on NPR’s Austin 100—their playlist of the most anticipated acts at SXSW in 2014. With Mustard Plug, Dan PottHast. $10, 7pm, The Korova, 107 E Martin, (210) 226-5070 —Matt Stieb
