Double-fisted cans of country-fried whup-ass — huh?

This message brought to you by Brett O’Bourke over at FlavorPill.com: Dec. 26 the Fillmore opens up double-fisted cans of country-fried whup-ass with the Reverend Horton Heat joined by Hank III and Nashville Pussy. On one hand, you’ve got the good Reverend, who’s been stomping out Texas-sized psychobilly since his band blazed out of Dallas in 1985. On the other, you have the skeletally skinny Hank III, who not only sounds like his granddaddy, but looks like him to boot. Junior typically opens with a set of classic country covers and originals — filled with the acoustic heartbreak of real country music, not the crap you hear on the radio — before launching into an electrified storm of breakneck hellbilly. You’re going to want to hold onto your hat.

 1805 Geary Blvd, (415) 346-6000) Price $35
