On Saturday, Emo’s presents “Devils Night Out” with the Reverend Horton Heat and the Tejano punk band Piñata Protest. Come and blow off some steam with some of Texas’ finest in hellishly daring punkabilly, hot enough to roast on a three pronged fork.
Just in time and right around the corner from All Hallows Eve, the Reverend Horton Heat will be singing once again about psycho ex-boyfriends, gold diggin’ girlfriends, psychobilly freak-outs and being piss drunk. A concoction of punk, country, swing, surf and rockabilly all rolled up and ready to smoke, just make sure you have a cold brew in hand to cool you down. It’ll be a hell-fire-fueled honky-tonk straight from the core of Texas.
Joining the heat is the Mexican drop-kick-you-in-the-ass Piñata Protest. These guys somehow manage to make an accordion sound punk-rock and can rally up a church full of nuns to a slam dance. A highly energetic group who perfectly fuses together traditional conjunto with a little thrash guitar for a clever collaboration of some serious fuego. Appropriately naming their genre mojado punk, they are a perfect Tex-Mex original.
Emo’s is located at 2015 E. Riverside Dr. Tickets are $5 for ages 21 and up, or get in free if you come dressed as the devil. Not kidding.
