Not limited to one style or sound, Southern Culture on the Skids incorporates rockabilly, surf rock, punk and country into its songs. Adding in a bit of sleazy, raucous, but good-natured humor has only made the band’s songs that much more irresistible. From its 1985 debut “Voodoo Beach Party,” to its classic 1991 album, “Too Much Pork for Just One Fork,” this veteran North Carolina band knows how to throw a good party with a great soundtrack. The trio’s first self release, “The Kudzu Ranch,” debuted in 2010 and proved to fans the band is still in top form. Southern Culture on the Skids performs at the Camel on Thursday, May 3, at 8 p.m. $20. 353-4901.
