Southern Culture on the Skids at Plaza Bowl

Southern Culture on the Skids is the type of band that draws its name from its sound. In the case of these North Carolina natives, the sound is bluegrass and country blended with pop harmonies and upbeat rock. Backwoods cousins of the B-52s, this band is known for its twangy vocals, muscular guitars and the fried chicken and banana pudding launched, often from the stage. Its new album, “Countrypolitan Favorites,” is a collection of covers from influences such as T.Rex to the Byrds, but the band is its own strange, silly thing: pointy shoes, tall wigs and surf-rock from a swamp. The band plays at Plaza Bowl on Saturday, July 18, at 8 p.m. 233-8799. — Lauren Nicole Hill
