Reverend Horton Heat Hits The Road

You have to give props to Jim Heath, also known as the Reverend Horton Heat. He has been slamming gin and tonics while blazing through some of the hottest rockabilly on the planet for nearly twenty years. I will never forget seeing the good Reverend for the first time in the early '90s. It was an outdoor show in Dallas with the Toadies and the Butthole Surfers. I was a changed man after that night. Heath's effortless guitar work simply blew my mind. During a ridiculously sick guitar solo during "Marijuana", he somehow balanced himself on top of Jimbo Wallace's upright bass. To this day, nobody rocks like the Rev.

If somehow you have yet to experience the greatness that is the Reverend Horton Heat, you are now in luck. The psychobilly trio has announced a forty-five date tour, stretching from California to Georgia. Although I am quite saddened that they aren't heading a bit further north to NYC, it is good to see that they are indeed still fueling up the van and kicking ass across the country. At least they are playing Lollapalooza. Yo DuFour, can I crash on your floor?
The Full-Custom Gospel Sounds Of... to enjoy a few of my favorites. It is Friday, so follow the good Reverend's advice. "Party... get naked... buy us beer!" It is definitely "Beer:30."
