Bands like Skeletonwitch may come across as scary when you listen to their music and hear singing/screaming sounding like it’s coming from the bowels of hell, but put these long-haired headbangers in front of a couple of young and unassuming kids and you’ll find out they have a soft side.

Skeletonwitch is set to heat up the cold winter night on Thursday when they play at Ace of Cups. Tickets are $10 at the door. Dismemberment, Summon the Destroyer and Takacs all open the show.
