Hank 3, the king of hellbilly, will be back at the Mateel on Wednesday, Oct. 16 for the debut tour of a new double album entitled Brothers of the 4x4 and a single punk album entitled A Fiendish Threat.
The grandson of country music legend Hank Williams and the son of Hank Williams Junior, Hank 3 is one of the most prominent musicians to play neotraditional country in a country music market dominated by pop country. His shows are legendary for their intensity and length, and the first two hours of this four-and-a-half-hour show will start with a two-hour set of his country/hillbilly music, followed by a half-hour of his newest punk; then one hour of ADD Doom Metal, which will include a film and end with a half-hour of 3 Bar Ranch, which he calls his “speed metal with cattle calling.”
Hank 3 tickets are being sold at the usual outlets including Redway Liquor, SHC in Garberville; Redwood Music Mart and The Works in Eureka; Peoples Records in Arcata; Peg House in Leggett; It Takes Two to Tangle in Laytonville; Main Street Music in Willits; Ukiah Natural Foods in Ukiah and Tangents in Fort Bragg. Tickets are $25 and will also be sold at the door if still available.
