September 18 — Southern Culture On The Skids
September 18 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since they formed in Chapel Hill, N.C. in1983. Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff “play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych,“ according to their Facebook page. “It’s a musical gumbo Miller calls ‘Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.’”
The band has toured everywhere from the North Carolina Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan and delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.”
Opening for the September 18 show will be Drew & The Blue, Reading’s very own popular surf/rockabilly trio.
Each concert in the Downtown Alive free concert series will feature a festival atmosphere and include food trucks, beer and wine for sale. All shows will be held in the 500 block of Penn Street and start at 5 p.m.
Berks County Community Foundation and the Berks County Convention Center Authority are the founding sponsors of this concert series.
