Bio: In 1987, back when the drinking age was 18, Zero's was purchased on Superbowl Sunday and is now celebrating over 25 years in existence. Mark and Larry Sieber, two brothers from Wisconsin, migrated to Corpus Christi with dreams of striking it rich. They bought a neighborhood bar, formally known as The Golden Nugget, and changed the format into a Rock- N-Roll sports bar supporting local pool and dart teams. Zero's soon started booking Metal bands including local legends Devastation (Metal Blade Records), Ankor Wat (Combat Records), with members that later joined bands Nine Inch Nails and Dangerous Toys (Columbia Records) featuring Jason McMasters from Corpus Christi. Other notables that performed were Gary Ritchrath (Guitarist/songwriter R.E.O. Speed Wagon) D.R.I., M.O.D., The Casualties, Propain, Yellowcard, Fear, Agent Orange, Crowbar, Rise Against, and solo projects by members from Misfits, Kings X, Dead Horse,Pissing Razor,Reverend,David Wyne(ex-Metal Church vocalist)and Gwar. Bands from as far away as Germany (Oxymoron), Brazil (Overdose), London, Sweden, and Canada made tour stops at Zero's. Drowning Pool, who made several trips to Zero's for as little as $100 a night, landed a record deal with several hit songs and co- headlined for OZ Fest.
