In House #1566: Reverend Horton Heat & Th'Legendary Shack Shakers in Jackson Hole
Today it's cowpunk, hellbilly, whatever you wanna call it, as the Reverend Horton Heat and the Legendary Shack Shakers play the first of two shows together at Jackson Hole's Mangy Moose. Hardly in need of an introduction, the Reverend Horton Heat released his (their) first full-length back in 1992. Over the course of nine albums during the past fourteen years, the band has become easily one of the most recognizable names in the sub-genre, small as it is. Their most recent release, not counting this past season's Christmas album, is 2004's Revival.

Th'Legendary Shack Shakers have recently spawned the third album in their comparatively short existence. Pandelerium serves up another batch of sizzling psychobilly, with sinister circus flavors and guest spots from Jello Biafra and the aforementioned Reverend. The Shakers are led by the crazed Col. J.D. Wilkes, who possesses a mean blues harp and a hellish wail.

The bill from hellbilly heaven stays in the region all week long reconvening tomorrow night in Jackson before the Shakers head up the road to Boise. The two meet up once again for a Friday night show in Salt Lake City. See the selected live & upcoming section for more details.
