The Reverend Horton Heat

Media Title

Some of the most delicious things in life are the results of combinations. Peanut butter and jelly, cream and sugar, gin and juice—the list goes on, and face it: Blended delights rock. The same can be said about music. After all, mixing the genres of country, surf, punk, big band, swing and rockabilly has resulted in a acts like the Reverend Horton Heat.

Defining their style as “country-fed punkabilly,” the Dallas-based trio—Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath on guitar and lead vocals, Jimbo Wallace on the upright bass and Scott Churilla on drums—have been active since 1985. Their driving music matches well with their signature whimsical lyrics, different from the usual hot rods and switchblades mentioned elsewhere in the genre. Their blistering tunes have been heard in TV and movie projects alike, as well as in popular video games for the better part of 20 years. Guitar Hero II, Hot Wheels Turbo Racing and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 are but a few of the group’s games score credits, and their reach even extends to films like Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and Bio-Dome.

The group’s new album, Rev, is slated for released this week, perfect timing for their Trocadero show. In fact, their latest single, “Let Me Teach You How To Eat,” features a series of burlesque dancers, which suits the venue’s infamous origins just fine. Bon appetit! / KENNEDY ALLEN

7:30pm. $18-$20. With Nekromantix, THE CREEPSHOW + Deke Dickerson. The Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St. 215.922.6888. thetroc.com
