  • Who'll be the belle of the Tim Burton Ball?

For local punks who still have some leftover energy from both Otisfest and the Triple Nickel 12th Anniversary shows, here’s one you won’t want to miss: Long-running and influential hardcore punk act Agnostic Front plays the Black Sheep on Tuesday, Dec. 19. Agnostic Front will need little introduction for hardcore fans, thanks to defining records such as Victim in Pain and Cause for Alarm, the band both pioneered and outlived the New York City hardcore scene, later expanding their sound by adding elements of thrash metal. As an added bonus for locals, the show features support from Ultraviolet, Street Priests and 99 Bottles.

Incidentally, 99 Bottles will celebrate their own 10-year anniversary in 2018 and are planning a reunion show, with details soon to come. In the meantime, you can also catch them on Jan. 4 at Denver’s Marquis Theater supporting Italian pogo-punk band The Defectives.

Finally, Zodiac has hosted a slew of interesting “theme nights” of late, and Dec. 15 is no exception as they hold a Tim Burton Ball, just in time for the holidays.

What? You mean you guys don’t watch The Nightmare Before Christmas every year? And yes, while the film was actually helmed by director Henry Selick, it is perhaps the best crystallization of Burton’s aesthetic to date, and I’d expect to see plenty of Jack Skellingtons and Sallys at the night’s costume contest. Live music will be provided by local goth/deathrock act WitchHands.
