Zeros to Heroes at the Whisky: Los Angeles has gifted the world two bands called the Zeros — one was a punk band from the early days of the genre. This one is the ‘80s Sunset Strip rockers. It’s a great bill too; Motorcycle Boy, Prophets of Addiction, Foxy Roxx, Love Kills, Molly Vamp and Black Tie also play.
This Zeros formed in 1982 and could be easily spotted on the Strip thanks too their matching purple hair. This show at the Whisky sees all of the original members back together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut 4,3,2,1…Zeros album.
According to Wiki, “Relocating to Los Angeles in 1986, the band shortened their name to The Zeros and were joined by bass player Danny Dangerous. Under the guidance of former Poison manager Howie Hubbberman, The Zeros developed their image which was characterized by matching purple hair, custom made Converse thigh-high sneakers, and their hot-rodded classic 1968 Chevrolet Nomad Wagon ‘Zeromobile’. The band’s local notoriety exploded when Danny Dangerous’ childhood friend Butch Lukic began illustrating The Zeros’ cartoon likeness which appeared in magazines, flyers, merchandise, and eventually the cover of the albums 4, 3, 2, 1 … Zeros and Rule The World.”
Motorcycle Boy are another Strip band from back in the day, while Prophets of Addiction feature members of Pretty Boy Floyd. Should be a good ‘un.
Zeros to Heroes at the Whisky: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 18 at the Whisky A Go Go.
