Skid Row bringing music to Wild Bill's

Skid Row began as a group of New Jersey kids determined to conquer the world with their unique blend of punk and metal. Iconic songs such as “I Remember You,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “18 and Life” earned them top 10 singles, gold and multi-platinum sales, heavy MTV rotation and No. 1 status on the Billboard album chart. The world was theirs, the rebellion won, until there was nothing left to fight for — so they fought each other. Following an ill-advised South American tour in 1996, the band split up.

But the core camaraderie never died and Skid Row returned to the stage in 2000, opening for Kiss. They reintroduced the band as relevant without relying too much on past success, bassist Rachel Bolan told City Book. Thick skin and revolutions per minute led to hundreds of live shows, with Johnny Solinger out front, and the highly anticipated albums won over both old and new fans.

Patrons of Wild Bill’s will have the opportunity to watch Skid Row’s latest rebellion up close and personal when the band brings their new EP, United World Rebellion, to the stage on Saturday, July 27, at 9:30 p.m. Produced in a studio in Atlanta, the EP is the first of a series. The upcoming show promises to bring down the house with a mixture of old hits and new. Joining Rachel and Johnny is Dave “Snake” Sabo on guitar, Scotti Hill on guitar and Rob Hammersmith on drums.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 to $30 at the door. Table and stage mezzanine seating is also available. Purchase in advance at www.ticketmaster.com. Wild Bill’s is at 2075 Market Street in Duluth. For more information visit www.wildbillsatlanta.com or call (678) 473-1000.

  • Bryan Collins: Men, step up

    On Sunday, our nation will celebrate Father’s Day. The observable differences in the way Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are celebrated could be attributed to several different factors.  Mother’s Day is typically a more sentimental occasion than Father’s Day because our moms are usually a little more sentimental. Moms are typically more nurturing and so we think of them differently than we think of our dads. It is too often the case that moms have to play the role of mother and father to the children.

  • The Rev. G. David Henderson: The powerlessness in aloneness

    God knows the fragileness of every human he has created. The first time God graded something as “no good” within his new creations is when he created the first human, Adam: “It is not good for any man to abide alone” (Genesis 2:18). God then created Eve.

  • The Rev. G. David Henderson: Christ-like power from devilish thorns

    Today’s devotional is to the readers who have asked God many times to rid Satan out of their life, but as of yet he hasn’t  removed him. The Apostle Paul also experienced such heartbreaking misery.
