When you have a ticket to a Southern Culture on the Skids show, you KNOW you’re goin’ to a party. SCOTS is notorious for their wild shows (it’s very possible to get a piece of fried chicken or a glob of banana pudding thrown at you), and that’s exactly what we got last night!
They played all the goodies: “Camel Walk”, “Mojo Box”, “Soul City”, “Too Much Pork For Just One Fork”, and “Nitty Gritty”. My favorite songs of the evening were “Banana Pudding”, Mary’s chilling version of “Fire of Love”, and a stunning song called “Grey Skies” from their latest release “The Electric Pinecones” (it just might be my favorite SCOTS album). It’s a bit of a departure from their usual sound – there’s some excellent, serious songwriting here. The band really shines on this album. I highly recommend it.
I didn’t want this show to end. I could listen to Mary Huff sing and watch Rick Miller play his Danelectro all night long.
I shot some photos and a (too-dark) video just for you. Enjoy!
