This venerable punk band hails from Mesa, AZ. What prompted them to schedule a winter tour of Canada, I’m not exactly sure. But given the extra mild conditions we’ve been experiencing, it seems they’ve caught a bit of a break heading into their Thursday, Dec. 17 show at the University of Regina’s campus pub the Owl.

Authority Zero has been around since the mid-1990s, and has five studio albums to its credit — the last being The Tipping Point in 2013. The band has also released a couple of live albums.

Sharing the stage with Authority Zero at the Owl on Thursday will be California band Versus the World and local act Almost Alien. Here’s video of Authority Zero performing “No Other Place” at a Mesa club in 2014:
