The rockabilly gospel according to Horton Heat is a fiery collision between traditional elements and punk attitude. “Martini” is every bit as raucous as the Texas trio’s three previous albums--chock-full of devilish double-entendres, sharp social satire and sizzling musicianship. The group plays tonight at the Universal Amphitheatre with the Butthole Surfers, the Toadies and the Supersuckers.
