      EVENT DETAILS
      Reverend Horton Heat

      with The Delta Bombers, Chrome Daddy Disco
      Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heaths imagination. True to his high evan- gelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of Ameri- can music. Hes a time-travelling space-cowboy on a endless inter- stellar musical tour, and we are all the richer & psychobillier for get- ting to tag along.Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative ex- perience. Flames come off the gui- tars. Heat singes your skin. Theres nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Rever- end Horton Heat show. Jim be- comes a slicked-back 1950s rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand- Up Bass. And then there are the Heatettes. Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming thenight away. Its like being magically transported into a Teen Exploita- tion picture from the 1950s thats currently taking place in the future.Listening to the REVEREND HOR- TON HEAT is tantamount to injecting pure musical nitrous into the hot-rod engine of your heart. The Reverends commandants are simple.ROCK HARD,DRIVE FAST,AND LIVE TRUE.And no band on this, or any other, planet rocks harder, drives faster, or lives truer than the Reverend Horton Heat. These itinerant preachers actually practice what they preach. They live their lives by the Gospel of Rock & Roll.From the High-Octane Spaghet- ti-Western Wall of Sound in Big Sky to the dark driving frenetic paranoia of 400 Bucks to the brain-melting Western Psyche- delic Garage purity of PsychobillyFreakout The Revs music is the perfect soundtrack to the Drive-In Movie of your life.Jim Heath & Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twenty- five Psychobilly years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showman- ship, and mythic imagery.Okay its time for me to put this loaded gun down, jump in my Five- Oh Ford, and nurture my pig on the outskirts of Houston. Ill be bring- ing my love whip. See yall later. - Carty Talkington Writer/DirectorRev your engines and catch the ser- mon on the road as its preached by everybodys favorite Reverend. Dont forget to keep an eye out for the 11th studio album from REV- EREND HORTON HEAT, boldly ti- tled Rev, due out January 21st.
