CL RECOMMENDS

CRITIC’S PICK: Jim Heath may not have invented “psychobilly,” but he has become the most visible example of that genre’s freaked-out, guitar-heavy mix of blues, surf, country, and rock ’n’ roll, injected with some sweat-soaked punk. Imagine the Stray Cats on amphetamines and you’re close to the intense attack Heath and shotgun-running standup bassist Jimbo have delivered for the past thirty-plus years. Strap in and hang on for the ride. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Formed in 1985, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT exploded on the scene by playing gigs around their hometown of Dallas, Texas, mixing elements of surf, country, punk, big band and rockabilly to create a genre that took the world by storm. Often imitated, never duplicated, the Rev has continued to garner the support of both the underground rockabilly/ psychobilly scene and mainstream critics. Throughout the band’s million plus album selling career, their music has been featured in countless TV shows, movies and commercials, it’s impossible to deny the powerful force that is THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT. They continue to electrify audiences time and time again with their incredible stage presence, rock ‘n roll charisma and contagious energy.

Ready to revive a genre that’s been watered down for years, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT have jump started their headlining STEWED, SCREWED and TATTOOED tour that will ignite over fifty-seven cities across the US this Winter and throughout 2013. Lemmy from MOTORHEAD said it best, “Reverend Horton Heat, he’s great and plays the music he believes in and nothing else. Go see him or I’ll kill you!” Prepare to rock harder than you have ever rocked before!
