Pick Of The Day (Tomorrow Edition): Authority Zero

Authority Zero have been around since 1994. They’re a Mesa, Arizona-based ska/reggae/punk band whose sound has been compared to bands like Bad Religion and Pennywise.

Wednesday night they’re in town to play a show at the Exchange (doors are at 7 p.m., and tickets are $13). Sharing the bill are the Kelowna punk/pop band White Knights Finish Last and two Regina groups Cricket and Tomorrow Starts Today.

To give you a sense of what Authority Zero is like here’s the video for the song “Big Bad World” off their 2010 album Stories of Survival:


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
