Southern Culture on the Skids


Has any other city produced such awestruck Americana as Chapel Hill? North Carolina’s Southern Culture On The Skids, known for their parody songs about fried chicken and sex, take stage at the Bowery Ballroom tonight. Throughout their 20-year catalogue, an eerie simplicity prevails—though their legacy might be a track about the deliciousness of banana pudding (which, buyer beware, they’ve been known to hurl at the audience), “Hee Haw” lasted for over 20 years, didn’t it? Though it’s no Cat’s Cradle, turn the Bowery Ballroom into your personal hoedown and get down tonight. With Los Straightjackets.
