Charleston, SC-based Shovels and Rope just announced a surprise performance tonight at Jack of the Wood. The duo played Jack of the Wood early this year as part of a special Valentine’s Day show. They return in support of their upcoming (July 31) release of O’ Be Joyful.
According to a press release, “In 2011 alone, Shovels and Rope logged over 200 dates, touring with Justin Townes Earle, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, the Felice Brothers, Hayes Carll and Butch Walker. They perform as an energetic two-piece band, stirring up a righteous racket with two old guitars, a handful of harmonicas, the occasional keyboard, and a junkyard drum kit (harvested from an actual garbage heap) adorned with tambourines, flowers and kitchen rags.”
10 p.m. showtime (following singer-songwriters in the round featuring Dave Desmelik and Paul Cataldo), $7. Barons of Tang also perform.
