Whatever room The Reverend Horton plays gets turned into a rockabilly roadhouse full of slicked back hair, dancers in poodle skirts and boys throwing back drinks.
It’s the rock ’n’ roll equivalent of a hot rod revving its engine.
The Reverend Horton Heat is the name of both the band and the man — born Jim Heath — that fronts it. Shortly after appearing in Omaha, the group will release a brand new album, “Rev,” its first in four years.
“Rev” is reportedly a return to the band’s trademark psychobilly — a blend of punk and rockabilly music.
“We wanted to get back to rockin’ on this thing, and that’s why we really wanted to stack the faster songs on the beginning, and really get it all heated up,” Heath told Rolling Stone.
See The Reverend Horton Heat perform with openers Nekromantics and Deke Dickerson at 8 p.m. Wednesday at The Waiting Room Lounge. Tickets, $25, are available at etix.com or Homer’s Music.
