Reverend Horton Heat – KXCI Presents!

Rialto Theatre

rev1

Reverend Horton Heat with Deke Dickerson & The Ecco-Fonics and Nekromantix

Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He’s 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 trans-formative experience. Flames come off the gui- tars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim be- comes a slicked-back 1950′s 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 the night away. It’s like being magically transported into a Teen Exploita- tion picture from the 1950′s that’s currently taking place in the future.

This show is general admission w/ festival seating: A few rows of seats are available in the rear of the theatre, but not enough to accommodate all tickets sold. These are available on a first come, first serve basis.
