Southern Culture on the Skids to Play Outer Banks Brewing Station
North Carolina-based music icons Southern Culture on the Skids will return to the Outer Banks this summer for what promises to be one of the biggest concerts of the year at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills in July.
Formed in Chapel Hill, NC in 1983, the band has been spreading the rock and roll gospel ever since. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman, and bassist/singer Mary Huff play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B, and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy.
It’s a musical gumbo Miller calls, “Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.” The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan, and delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.”
Their original music has been used in various feature films over the years, including “Soul City” in both Happy Gilmore (1996) and the Dukes of Hazzard (2005), “White Trash” in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996), and “Camel Walk” in Flirting with Disaster (1996).
The band themselves appeared briefly in the 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer, which was written by New Bern, NC native Kevin Williamson (Scream, Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries) and was filmed in nearby Southport, North Carolina. During a party scene early in the film, SCOTS is featured performing their track “My Baby’s Got the Strangest Ways”.
Southern Culture on the Skids will be live in concert at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills on Friday, July 6 starting at 10pm.
Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door, available for online purchase here.
