CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: If concerts had ratings like movies, Walker Jr.’s would be triple X. That’s by design, of course, as comedian Ben Hoffman decided, through Walker, his alter ego, to make the filthiest pure honky-tonk music that radio, and/or conservatives, would never touch. Mission accomplished with his first song, 2013’s “Eatin’ Pussy, Kickin’ Ass” (premiered on his Comedy Channel show) and it has been downhill from there. Musically, he enticed lauded producer Dave Cobb in his corner to provide credibility. Walker has been a popular guest on podcasts and talk shows chatting about tunes like “God Told Me to F**k You,” F**ked by a Country Boy,” and the immortal “Finger Up My Butt.” It’s guaranteed to be the rowdiest, dirtiest, most obscene and, if you’re in the mood, funniest country show ever. Whether this is sharp social satire or simply bad taste isn’t clear. In either case, you’ve been warned.  —HH

From the venue:

In a now-classic scene from the 1976 Academy Award Winning film Network, newscaster Howard Beale screams into the television camera, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”Beale — struggling with declining ratings and just learning that he was about to lose his job - decides to let loose on national television after declaring that “life is bullshit.”
