The Reverend Horton Heat, 1 April 2017
Gig of The Reverend Horton Heat in White Oak Music Hall - Downstairs
Glass the Sky and A Sundae Drive have been steady and reassuring presences within Houston’s indie-rock community for most of the decade, and ASD for several years before that, too. The groups are so tight they’ve decided to have a joint release party for their new albums, and while the two don’t often step on each other’s toes aesthetically, both number among the more cerebral groups in their chosen genre — either in Houston or anywhere else. The deluxe-length songs on ASD’s Versailles dip their toes into the warm waters of slowcore and shoegaze, but often develop toward the thrilling climaxes of Explosions In the Sky (with vocals, though). Glass the Sky’s LP1, which follows up 2014’s EP, isn’t quite as bound to the shadows, balancing plaintive melodies with exalted guitar work, but the effect is similarly satisfying. Houston’s leading post-punk agitators, the Wheel Workers, and College Station kitchen-sinkers the Ex-Optimists round out what should be a stellar evening.

About The Reverend Horton Heat
The Reverend Horton Heat is the stage name of American musician Jim Heath (born 1959) as well as the name of his Dallas, Texas-based psychobilly trio. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. One reviewer called Heath the "godfather of modern rockabilly and psychobilly."
The group formed in 1985, playing its first gigs in Dallas's Deep Ellum neighborhood. Its current members are Jim "Reverend Horton" Heath on guitar and lead vocals and Jimbo Wallace on the upright bass. The band signed to Victory Records on November 27, 2012, and released its 11th studio album, REV, on January 21, 2014.
The band describes itself as "country-fed punkabilly". The band mixes country, surf, punk, big band, swing and rockabilly into loud, energetic songs with often-humorous lyrics. Video games, cartoons and commercials have used the band's songs, giving The Reverend Horton Heat mainstream exposure.
