With a most excellent accelerated 2/4 stomp and giggle, this miscreant trio from Ithaca — with Rochester’s Reverend Sam on bass — play songs steeped in irony. Though hilarious, titles like “I’m the Bulge in Satan’s Pants,” don’t distract from the music’s redneck thrash, twang and thrills. Mad Cow Tippers borrows from the likes of The Cramps and The Reverend Horton Heat to add to the honkin’, psychobilly splendor.

Mad Cow Tippers perform Friday, November 22, 9:30 p.m.; Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $5 – $8, abilenebarandlounge.com
