About Reverend Horton Heat: 

Recently, the Reverend Horton Heat, aka Jim Heath, had something along the lines of what he calls an epiphany.

He’s a little tired of being taken so seriously-well, maybe not seriously, exactly, but you get the idea-and lately he’s noticed that some of his funnier, country-tinged songs were his biggest crowd pleasers. Besides, being entertaining is what this is all about, right?

So, ladies and gents, roll your smokes up in your sleeve and hold on to your cowboy hats, it’s time to take a trip back to a time before slick, over-produced country became the norm-a time when outlaws wrote songs about being without a pot to pee in-or at least about psycho exboyfriends and deadbeat girlfriends that spend your paycheck faster than you can say Lone Star.

About The Supersuckers

Our story is almost impossible to believe. This band is literally a human cartoon. We all grew up among the dead-ends and cactus needles of Tucson, Arizona and have known each other since grade school. We graduated from the same high school together at the same time (a school immortalized in our song “Santa Rita High”) and we chose to play in a band together because we liked to hang out together, not because we were great musicians or anything. I truly believe that a band is defined by their limitations, that what they can’t (or won’t) do is just as important as what they can do. I guess that, in this era of pre-fabricated, put-together-to-have-a-hit bands, we’re kind of an aberration and I gotta tell ya that that makes us smile a little every day.

    I can’t think of a better way to ring out 2011 (it sucked!!) and ring in 2012 (it will be awesome!) than with the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World.

  2. Julia December 19, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    I would love to win tix because I have never seen these performers live and I’ve never won tickets. (First!)

  3. Kat G December 19, 2011 at 9:48 am #

    I have always heard that New Year’s at the Crystal is awesome, but I haven’t ever been able to get tickets or go!!

  4. Kathy Wilson December 19, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Would love to attend because I rarely go to a party on NYE

  5. Meg December 19, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    I love the name of the group! Haven’t heard of them before, but I’m looking for something to do on New Years Eve, and this sounds fun.

  6. Kelsey Ivey (@KelseyIvey) December 19, 2011 at 11:10 am #

    Sounds like a fantastic party. I plan on going big or going home this year for NYE and tickets to this event would make the night!

  7. Shayne Johnson December 19, 2011 at 11:18 am #

    I would really love to go to this. It’s been a really tough year for my girlfriend and it will be an amazing anniversary gift for her.

  8. Melissa December 19, 2011 at 11:32 am #

    Have you heard The Reverend? I can’t think of a better way to start a year

  9. Steve Colburn December 19, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    Crank up the Heat, Horton. We are ready to Paarrrtayyyy!

  10. Monica wander December 19, 2011 at 2:54 pm #

    I want to go to this because it clearly going to be the most rockin event of 2011 and 2012

  11. MattintheHat December 20, 2011 at 4:02 am #

    This bill reminds me of when you could see five bands for five bucks. This bill reminds me of when Wesley Willis head-butted me when Rick Sims was a SuperSucker. This bill reminds me of when I was young. I am not young, I am old. I have a kid now, and should probably stay home on New Years’ Eve. However, my kid serves as a reminder that while I may be old, I am most certainly not dead. Rock over London, rock on Chicago! The night belongs to Michelob.

  12. cynthia December 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    I’m coming from Bend and would love nothing better than to party with these guys. I don’t just Like these guys….I love them!

    I love the Rev!

  18. suzanne December 21, 2011 at 7:34 pm #

    My boyfriend has hinted that New Year’s Eve will be the night he pops the question….we shopped for rings…I have the dress…all is in readiness but the PLACE!!!! Maybe the Rev. will even marry us!!!

  19. Teagan Walden December 21, 2011 at 8:30 pm #

    This would be a rocking ruckus good time. My date and I would roll with the Rev right into the glorious new year. I LOVE the crystal and would be honored to ring in the new year in style with two rocking bands. YIIIPPEEE pick me! ; )

  20. Kara December 22, 2011 at 12:30 am #

    The Reverend and the Supersuckers!!! Jeezus sign me up!

  21. April December 22, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    It’s been a long year. Ready for the next one.

  22. Katie December 22, 2011 at 2:40 pm #

    I heard the Reverend for the first time over the summer and have rarely danced that hard for that long. I’d love to do it again!!

  23. Noel December 22, 2011 at 3:24 pm #

    Big fan of the Reverend but have never seen him live. Seems like something is always in the way but not this time so now is my chance.

  24. Shari December 22, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    Pick me!! I’m from Seattle and I’d love to do NYE PDX-style. :)

  25. D Ness December 22, 2011 at 4:30 pm #

    It’s going to be a crazy rockabilly freakout!

  26. Sunshine December 22, 2011 at 4:48 pm #

    My boyfriend and I met at the Crystal Ballroom’s Halloween Erotic Ball in 2010…. we were both with other dates, and he hit on me anyway!!! We celebrated our 1 year anniversary this year at the Erotic Ball AGAIN, and this will be our first NYE to celebrate together. It would be a nice surprise to him if I won tickets for us to celebrate in style at “our” place.

  27. Yuri December 22, 2011 at 5:44 pm #

    Sounds super cool! The crystal is the best music venue in town and I’d love to spend my new years there watching this great band!

  28. Sarah Desrochers December 22, 2011 at 7:38 pm #

    I’ve not been to an event at the Crystal Ballroom, and this one sounds like a hoot! I’d love to laugh and have a good time ringing in the new year!

  29. Tino December 23, 2011 at 5:39 am #

    I would love to win tickets because this is going to be the most exciting event of 2011!!!! I would go with my girlfriend!! :)

  30. D.J. December 23, 2011 at 6:59 am #

    The Supersuckers are the GREATEST Rock ‘N’ Roll band on the earth….period! Plus the Rev is pretty cool.

  31. Jenn December 23, 2011 at 8:59 am #

    I would love tickets because otherwise I have no idea what my boyfriend and I are going to do for new years!

  32. Sara M December 23, 2011 at 10:10 am #

    I am 31 and this will be my first New Year’s Eve that I get to go out and celebrate! My kids are gone and I have a cute date to boot! Help me ring in the New Year in style!!!

  33. John December 23, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    I would like to see the Rev.

  34. RyanH December 23, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    We’d love to go! Walking distance home means a safe trip. Let’s go!

  35. Harlan Mayer December 23, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    I have not won yet? I’m a rockabilly fanatic – (but I’m broke).

    What do I have to do? I can come to your offices and play live for you!!!!

  36. *Miss Tristana* December 23, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    Holy crap The Rev is coming! Soon! Geezus I used to listen to these guys all the time in h.s…10 years ago..I could never b in a bad mood when the Rev is playing! I would absolutely LOVE to get my booty swingin to a nite of rockabilly! Can’t think of any better way to groove in the last year of the world. These guys have a ‘bad reputation..’ hope I’m the kinda girl they’d like to meet!

  37. Matt December 23, 2011 at 5:51 pm #

    Sweet…we would love to go! Not planning on going out, but this could change my mind

  38. Alison December 23, 2011 at 6:12 pm #

    Crystal Ballroom is the place to be! I’d love to ring in the new year bouncing on the trampoline-esque floor. These bands will be a riot, especially enhanced by a Mcmenamins Ruby =)

  39. Huck December 24, 2011 at 5:29 am #

    I would love to go!

  40. astrogirl December 24, 2011 at 10:12 am #

    Back in the DAY ’96… I used to work at the BIG BANG; a 5,000 sq ft Vintage shop downtown- THE go-to stop for anyone “cool” visiting PDX. (I can’t tell you how many bands I directed or took to Burnside) Anyway– we all LOVED the RHH… so we made an altar for them and nearly drove a non-believer insane(er) with our RHH marathon… but miraculously they never came in. WTF- HEAT?? So as you can see… clearly they OWE me one or TWO. Let me give them a piece of my mind ;) xoxox

  41. Jamie Martin December 24, 2011 at 12:25 pm #

    Gotta find something sweet to do for NYE!

  42. julie December 24, 2011 at 1:21 pm #

    Julie for the win!!! One of my annoying sisters is in town and i would love to not ring in the new years with her. My wonderful niece offered to babysit for me this year. Mamma needs to let loose and throw her panties on stage for the rev. If I win these tickets it might start of my good luck streak for 2011. Then I might get lucky enough to meet my future ex boyfriend there.

  43. Cori December 25, 2011 at 11:04 am #

    Music is what feelings sound like:
    My Feeelings reguarding Floater go back along way, you can almost call me a groupie Starting back in 93′. My baby Sis however has never had the expierence. She is coming up from California to bring the New Year in with me & truly I can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year.
    Not to Mention gettin to enjoy this expierence @ the Crystal Ball Room with the beautiful high ceilings,balcony, grand chandeliers, murals, and wide floor-to-ceiling arched windows what fun it would be!! I hope I earn the win,… either way Happy New Year to all!!!

  44. Harlan Mayer December 25, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    I’m posting again because it’s very IMPORTANT to me!!!

    I’m not going to beg, but I will if that would help!

  45. Indipendance December 25, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    I have some fabulous shoes I will wear to this party if you give me free tickets. I mean, four-inch-purple-stiletto-your-mother-will-be-ashamed-of-you-possibly-get-yourself-arrested-with-gold-trim shoes. You should probably give me those tickets. For your entertainment.

  46. David December 25, 2011 at 5:00 pm #

    I would like nothing more than to bring in the new year with the Reverend!

  47. Alan December 25, 2011 at 11:29 pm #

    Would really love to take my wife out for New Years……. last New Years we were 13 days from becoming parents, and I had to work, bartending at a lottery joint, followed by end of year inventory til 6 am, so my poor pregnant wife spent it alone…. We were also newlyweds, spending our first NYE apart and pregnant…. we wouldn’t change a thing(well maybe the inventory part, that really sucked!) our little Avram is just an amazing joy, and we love being parents. That being said, we really haven’t had a “Date” in 18 months and since we happily blew every penny we had on the little man, winning tickets to do something fun on New Years Eve would really put the Icing on the cake this Holiday Season!
    So why not let this Old Dawg teach his Lil Honey some new tricks?

  48. Bill December 26, 2011 at 9:35 am #

    I want to turn up the Heat and worship at the Reverend’s sanctuary…..bring on the New Year!

  49. Allen maderos December 26, 2011 at 11:15 am #

    I would love to see this band again because you see some of the true unfiltered country that I grew up with in the early 80’s. Great show for all ages.

  50. Nate Parr December 26, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    2 of the greatest rock n’ roll bands of all time. I’d love to dump off the kids at grandma and grandpas and ring in the new year right.

  51. lindsey December 26, 2011 at 10:33 pm #

    This sounds awesome. Suck it, NYE from last year!

  52. Susan Smith December 27, 2011 at 7:14 pm #

    The Reverend rules!! It would make my year to attend.

  53. ACPdx December 27, 2011 at 11:45 pm #

    My 4 yr old daughter thinks we should win so she can give them to her Dad. Not a lot of $$$ around for the holidays this year; nice surprise for him! Gracias!

  54. Kara December 29, 2011 at 1:10 am #

    I am ready to rock!

  55. Lisa December 29, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    Ready to PaHHHHHTaaaayyyyy!!!!!! Came last year and wishing to come this year but funds a bit tights! Help us out and let us ring in the New Year right @ the Crystal Ballroom again!!!!!!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. melissa December 29, 2011 at 5:10 pm #

    Would love these tickets!

  57. Marseile December 29, 2011 at 5:37 pm #

    I’ve seen the heat every time I’ve been able since 1995. I always wear my best lady like fancies – underpinnings and all. Then shake my hips as only we sinners know how.

    To think, my Rev and entourage with the Supersuckers…I vision a night of sublime ecstasy, debauchery, and sultry mischief.

    Come get me New Year! (if you can).

    xx, mars*

  58. T! December 29, 2011 at 10:11 pm #

    My boyfriend loooves reverend Horton heat. It’s our first new years eve and we have both recently been going through crazy times with deaths and family hardships. It’d be awesome to celebrate and lift the spirits a bit!

  59. carey December 29, 2011 at 10:58 pm #

    Jeesy Creesy! I have a pair of cowboy boots the could use the dust knocked off ’em.

  60. Tracer December 30, 2011 at 5:49 am #

    I love these guys and would really apprecIate winning tickets. Cheers

  61. Keelan November 6, 2012 at 8:18 am #

    I would love to go! I just moved to PDX this summer and I am hearing that NYE at the Crystal is where it’s at…is it true?!?!? Would lovvvvvve to find out :)

  62. Yvonne November 24, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    I finally have new years eve off after 5 years!!!!

  63. Devon Riddle November 19, 2013 at 9:13 pm #

    I want to really have these tickets because I want to give my parents the coolest Christmas present but money is kinda tight right now. My parents are paying for my brothers service mission right now so it is really hard but my parents would love to go to this sense they don’t get to hang out together that much because of work and all. If I get the tickets that would be so great I would love that and they would be really happy.

  64. Val November 28, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

    Rev Horton heat and Jason Webley was a really awesome show! Would love to dance to these guys while bringing in the new year

  65. Jason Wethington December 24, 2017 at 4:46 pm #

    I’d love to get these tix for my partner and I. It would be the perfect way to end 2017. My friend introduced me to the Reverend last year in Florida, it was a killer show.

    Help us bring in the new year right @the crystal ballroom pdxpipeline! Please let me win those tickets!
