Thursday December 14, 2017 @ 8:00 PM




Presenting HORTON'S HOLIDAY HAYRIDE featuring THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT and special guests THE BLASTERS and BIG SANDY on Thursday, December 14th at 8 pm!

If you’re looking for another boring holiday party, you are in the wrong place! Psychobilly legend, the Reverend Horton Heat, returns to Bridge Street with his hard-rocking Holiday Hayride, and he’s bringing the Blasters and Big Sandy along for the ride!

Welcome to the lethal, littered landscape of Jim Heath's imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing and reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. For 25 psychobilly years, Jim Heath and Jimbo Wallace of Reverend Horton Heat have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showmanship, and mythic imagery. Seeing Reverend Horton Heat live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There's nothing like the primal tribal rock 'n roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950’s rock 'n roll shaman channeling Screamin' Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass. Listening to the Reverend Horton Heat is tantamount to injecting pure musical nitrous into the hot-rod engine of your heart. From the High-Octane Spaghetti-Western Wall of Sound in "Big Sky" to the dark driving frenetic paranoia of "400 Bucks" to the brain-melting Western Psychedelic Garage purity of "Psychobilly Freakout" The Rev's music is the perfect soundtrack to the Drive-In Movie of your life.

The Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy that is best described by the title of their first album: “American Music.” Central figures of the eclectic LA punk/rock scene of the early ‘80s, the Blasters have obtained international-renown and influencers in their own right. A Blasters shows have been described as “a cross between Creedence and the Clash,” with a display of passion and energy only deepened by decades of experience.

For 25 years, Big Sandy has toured continuously and become a torchbearer of American roots music. Authenticity is the key to the music of Rockabilly Hall of Fame member and although he’s moved from rockabilly roots to a sound that encompasses folk, bluegrass, Western swing, Cajun, and mariachi influences, the Southern California-based performer continues to be faithful to the music of the past.
