Reverend Horton Heat
For a time, punks and rednecks were on opposite sides of the spectrum (see: the entire premise to SLC Punk). Then, a punk-obsessed country boy from Dallas, Texas changed that with his band, Reverend Horton Heat. With equal parts twang and snarl, the Rev started "psychobilly," a genre marked by lightning fast guitar, heavy use of effects, upright bass, and a lyrical obsession with alcohol. All that was almost 30 years ago, and the band hasn't slowed down a bit. Even with a relentless tour schedule, they still manage to put out records every few years. Their most recent, Rev, came out January 21. They're staying in Portland for two nights, and both shows—for good reason—are 21 and over.
