Voodoo Glow Skulls

In their 24 years of existence, the Voodoo Glow Skulls have an impressive list of achievements. 9 albums, one million records sold, appearances in exotic locations like Brazil and Japan as well as the creation of a record store, record label, recording studio and a music venue attests to the remarkable creativity and energy of the band. Formed in 1988, Voodoo Glow Skulls meshed hardcore punk, traditional ska, tough guitar riffs and the Mexican music of their roots to create the prototype for the West Coast ska-core sound. Unflinchingly honest, their songs often used humor to comment on harsh political realities - from racial inequity to unrest overseas. Singing in both Spanish and English, Voodoo Glow Skulls’ bilingual musical tradition has been a hallmark of the band since they began.
The core of the band since the beginning has been the three Casillas brothers, Frank, Eddie and Jorge. With a list of accomplishments that might make some bands ready to slow their pace, the band shows no signs of slowing down. Voodoo Glow Skulls dubbed their sound “California street music” - a perfect description of their high octane mix of rock, punk, ska and hardcore.
Voodoo Glow Skulls 9th studio album “Break the Spell” was released on January 17th on Smelvis Records and is available now!

The Cadillac brothers were shredding on guitar and bass. Horns were keeping up. Drumming decent. Singing these tunes is a challenge but done decently well. Good show, amigos! Whodovoodoo? We do. Eff ewe!

Won't let me give five stars but the concert rocked, my first time at venue small but fun staff cool, bouncers respectful, and food and beer specials awesome two warm up bands decent local to philly guys they need some practice. BUT THEN VooDoo came on and it was better than I expected and everything I hoped for now me being from Riverside CA might have something to do about but I don't think so my friends I was with are Philly boys and we all rocked out so much fun

Great show, VGS always delivers. There was a lot of variation in the opening acts: Milos sounded unprepared (if energetic), Rude Squad was almost better than Voodoo Glow Skulls, Askultura were too all over the place. I still left happy; great show.
