Reverend Horton Heat w/ Supersuckers, Dan Sartain 

When: Sun., Oct. 23 2011
Price: $20, $17 (adv.)
Veteran singer/guitarist Jim “Reverend Horton Heat” Heath is one of the most skillful and fiery bandleaders in the psychobilly world. Equal parts retro-garage, punk, traditional rockabilly, electric blues, and hard rock, his long-running trio first began stompin’ around in Texas in the late 1980s. By ’91, they’d signed with the SubPop label and started blazing a trail on the alt-rock tour circuit. They quickly earned a rabid following. Heath and his rhythm section — bassist Jimbo Wallace and drummer Paul Simmons — bring the rock mayhem to town this Sunday behind a recent LP called Laughin’ & Cryin’ with the Reverend Horton Heat (Yep Roc). It’s a collection of country-heavy tunes “about bad habits, well-meaning but clueless husbands, ever-expanding beer-guts, and Texas,” as the Rev puts it. The rock-solid Supersuckers and Dan Sartrain open.
