Southern Culture on the Skids

Southern Culture on the Skids, The Dune Dogs 

When: Sat., June 29, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-18

In many ways it's appropriate that Southern Culture on the Skids will play the final night in the Berkeley Cafe's music hall, given that in recent years, they've been the top local band to regularly play the club. The awkward stage setup in the music hall, running wide rather than deep, allows for SCOTS' signature trashy blasts to whack you in the face as you walk through the double doors. Perhaps it's the close proximity of the crowd to the stage, or the grit and grime of the venue, but the Berkeley fits Southern Culture on the Skids and their fans perfectly. On this final night with openers the Dune Dogs, the disco ball will spin, beer will be thrown, fried chicken will fly and banana pudding will be handed out in heaping servings by a stage full of dancers. Marianne will be at the door, Jen, Kim and Jim will be at the bar, Evan will have the sound mixed just right, and I'll be hanging out until they turn the lights off. —Dan Schram
