Reverend Horton Heat, Cracker, Legendary Shack Shakers

When: Thu., June 3, 8:30 p.m. 2010

You won't receive better value for your money, with the added bonus of nice variety. Openers Legendary Shack Shakers are the kind of animal that might necessitate shots if you get too close. Colonel J.D. Wilkes' manic performances are mesmerizing, and the band's loose-limbed sound ranges widely through swamp blues, gothic-country, country-punk and rockabilly-garage. Cracker's David Lowery is an underappreciated songwriter with a gift for hooks—plus an offbeat attitude and sly lyrical wit that makes Cracker's quirky roots-rock eccentricity particularly engaging. The Reverend's a white-hot guitarist capable of roof-raising rockabilly with flashes of country, blues and surf, filtered through Heat's charismatic stage presence. —Chris Parker
