When: Wed., Sept. 6, 7 p.m. 2017
With the regularity of Easter Mass, or of a particularly devout Catholic hitting the confessional, the Reverend Horton Heat and his crack backing band make their annual pilgrimage to Spokane next week (they were here last March, and in May 2015 before that). Since his first performances in his native Dallas, the good Reverend, the alias of musician Jim Heath, has amassed a devoted congregation with the fervency of any preacher worth his salt, and his local fans are sure to show up pretty much any time he ambles into town. Despite his name, Horton Heat’s music is gloriously sacrilegious, a winking, double-entendre-laced brand of rockabilly that swaggers with the raised middle finger of classic punk rock. See him live and become a member of his church.
