For three decades the Reverend Horton Heat has been raising a ruckus with its rockabilly-meets-county-meets-punk party music, with frontman Jim Heath holding countless audiences in the palm of his hand like a TV evangelist. Heath is the consummate rock & roll entertainer, and age hasn’t dulled his passion for his work. Not the performing part, anyway. The group is playing on Tuesday and Wednesday in Long Beach, possibly playing a lot of songs from 2018’s Whole New Life. This band averages an album every four years, so there’s blood to be gotten from that record yet. The Buttertones and Deke Dickerson also play.
Reverend Horton Heat plays with Deke Dickerson and The Buttertones at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21 and Wednesday, January 22 at Alex’s Bar.
