Southern Culture on the Skids 

When: Fri., April 15, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

The trailer park's just another repository for unrealized ambitions, similar to grad school or the rock bar. That recognition lends a loving nudge to such SCOTS' hick-heaven odes as "Camel Walk" or "Carve That Possum." But their appeal goes beyond their satirical wit, thanks to Rick Miller's razor wire twang, drummer Dave Hartman's grooving traps and Mary Huff's sultry alto purr. It's about the friendly backwoods vibe at which "Banana Puddin'" hints. Miller's an underappreciated American music fanatic; last year's wonderful Kudzu Ranch swings the window open even wider stylistically while embracing familiar touchstones from swamp boogie to garage, '60s girl pop, surf, country and rockabilly. —Chris Parker
