Dallas-based psychobilly trio, Reverend Horton Heat, will inaugurate this season’s Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series at the base of Aspen Mountain on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. The concert will be followed by the Giant Slalom awards and a fireworks show over Aspen Mountain.

The Reverend built a strong cult following during the ’90s through constant touring, manic showmanship, and a twisted sense of humor. Known for the popular songs “Eat Steak,” “Bad Reputation,” and “Love Whip,” Reverend Horton Heat will bring their high-energy and infectious sounds to the base of Aspen Mountain. 

The Bud Light beer garden will be open and additional specials will be offered at the base of the Silver Queen Gondola during the show.
