The Reverend Horton Heat is coming to town and we have a last-minute giveaway for ya!
Enter for your chance to win a CD of the new album Whole New Life signed by the band.

Coming to 191 Toole with their latest incarnation, Reverend Horton Heat will be hitting the Tucson stage to showcase the new album and play old crowd favorites with the newly expanded line-up...
