Southern Culture on the Skids’ Rick Miller has a thing for twang. In concert, the lanky guitarist/singer applies so much reverb to his licks that his spine seems to be tapped into the vibrations, sending Miller off on dances that look like re-enactments of the shimmy Elmer Fudd does after sticking his finger in a light socket. Even if SCOTS brand of campy, electro-charged rockabilly isn’t your thing, you might find it interesting that Miller demonstrates what might transpire if Jeff Foxworthy played guitar like Eddie Cochran. Stonesy roots-rockers Go To Blazes, who’ve relocated to Philadelphia since forming in D.C., open at 8:45 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $9. (202) 393-0930. (Brett Anderson)
