More Hardcore News: Skarhead at Ballers Rock Bar, May 7
Distinguished by Diablo's aggressive, street-smart swagger, the band is often credited for helping create so-called "thugcore," a subgenre full of relentless breakdowns and throwdown-ready posturing. (In recent years, in fact, Diablo has ventured into making his own solo hip-hop albums.) And while similar acts are thin on the ground these days, Skarhead keeps, uh, fighting the good fight. Its latest album, Drugs, Music & Sex, released last year on I Scream Records, also the label home for similar scene survivors like Madball and Wisdom in Chains. The band plays Ballers Rock Bar on Friday with a slew of opening acts from Florida, including Daytona Beach's Fortitude and Margate's own Shakers.
Skarhead. With Fortitude, the Shakers, and others. 8 p.m. Friday, May 7. Ballers Rock Bar, 3200 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd., Pembroke Pines. Admission costs $10; all ages; ballersrockbar.com
