Reverend Horton Heat Come to Brooklyn to Play Warsaw on Saturday

November 29th, 2016

Reverend Horton Heat—vocalist-guitarist Jim Heath with bassist Jimbo Wallace and drummer Scott Churilla (drums)—have been mashing together punk, rockabilly, electric blues and country music into their own acclaimed psychobilly sound since forming in Dallas more than 30 years ago “as a sort of punked-up Stray Cats with more gonzo songwriting,” said Rolling Stone. They quickly became known for nonstop touring, sweaty, energetic live performances and an irreverent sense of humor. Their most recent album, the terrific Rev (stream it below), came out in 2014. “They do this stuff better than anyone,” according to AllMusic, “and they don’t have to apologize for playing to their strengths when they can still wail like this.” “Reverend Horton Heat sound recharged and firing on all cylinders once again,” said PopMatters. “Fans old and new should be able to find plenty to carry them along for a wild ride with Rev.” Their current tour brings Reverend Horton Heat (above, performing “The Devil’s Chasing Me” live for KEXP FM) to Warsaw on Saturday night. Unknown Hinson, Nashville Pussy and Lucky Tubb open the show.
