Industrial, Metal Outfit Skatenigs Has Your New Year's Eve Plans Covered with Guillotine Show

Skatenigs frontman Phil Owen spoke to the Current recently for our cover story on Ministry’s Al Jourgensen. Owen, a longtime collaborator and friend of Jourgensen’s, explained that Skatenigs was actually birthed out of a need to have an opening band for a Revolting Cocks and Ministry show back in the late ’80s.

Formed in San Marcos, Skatenigs were a part of the pioneering industrial-metal community that would ultimately bring the genre into the mainstream. The fact that this show is happening — and on New Year’s Eve, no less — is actually pretty awesome. If you dig all things industrial and metal, you should definitely be at this one.

$15-$50, Mon Dec. 31, 7pm, Guillotine, 1818 N. Main St.
