Reverend Horton Heat and Dale Watson
7:00pm, June 6, 2021 | WAVE
Two Texas legends will be hitting the WAVE outdoor stage for an intimate evening of short songs and tall tales.
Reverend Horton Heat
Be it International rock festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Leeds or Reading, or Punks biggest events such as Riot Fest in Chicago or Denver, Rockfest in Montebello, or Country Music’s flagship event, Stagecoach, and even Rockabilly’s call to the wild, Viva Las Vegas, Reverend Horton Heat’s presence has been a constant since the Dallas band’s debut in the late 1980’s.
July 2016 saw the debut of Reverend Horton Heat Solo. For the first time in his storied career The Rev, AKA Jim Heath, performed a series of sold out concerts in select intimate theaters and showcase venues across the U.S. to adoring reviews. Combining new versions of Reverend Horton Heat classics with inside stories behind the music, the show flows like a version of MTV’s unplugged. On full display will be The Rev's wit, Southern charm and some life stories that ultimately lead to the songs that made the band famous. Do not miss the rare opportunity to see Reverend Horton Heat Solo.
With a silver pompadour and a belt-busting baritone that delivers songs about heartbreak and honky-tonking, Texas musician Dale Watson is straight country — but he doesn't necessarily want you to say so. Instead, Watson characterizes his music as "Ameripolitan," a new genre he says comprises honky-tonk, Western swing, rockabilly and outlaw country. He's incorporated elements of all four styles into his new album, Call Me Insane. No matter what you call it, though, Watson's music is filled with autobiographical experiences and real-life characters.
