Psychobilly freakout

If you like to your music to rock, head to the New Oasis next week for a triple threat of psychobilly acts in the forms of Reverend Horton Heat, Throw Rag and the HorrorPops. Reverend Horton Heat first burst out of Dallas, Tex., in 1990 with the single “Psychobilly Freakout,” which introduced a wider audience to the band’s blitzkrieg style and singer-guitarist Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath’s onstage mock sermons. Their 1991 album Smoke ’Em if You Got ’Em features fan favorites like “Marijuana,” “Bad Reputation” and “Eat Steak” (which was recently used for a series of Boston Market TV commercials). The band has released 11 albums, including their 1996 swing-flavored offering It’s Martini Time, 2004’s Revival and their 2005 Christmas-themed album, We Three Kings. Throw Rag of Salton Sea, Calif., coin their music “sailor rock,” a combination of punk, hard rock and country. Their latest album, 13 Ft. and Rising, features vocal contributions from Jello Biafra (ex-Dead Kennedys), Keith Morris (Circle Jerks) and Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead). Danish transplants the HorrorPops (pictured) play up the fun factor with their mix of new wave, punkabilly and ska, cool ghoul looks and freaky go-go dancers. Their latest album is Bring It On. The all-ages show begins 8 p.m. July 10 at New Oasis, 2100 Victorian Ave., Sparks. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door. Call 359-4020.
