Shovels and Rope w/ Jonny Corndawg, the Royal Tinfoil, Andrew Combs 

When: Fri., April 27 2012

What: The agreeable twosome of Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent have been touring all year as Shovels and Rope, the country-styled duo. Hearst and Trent, multi-instrumentalists both, like to set up on stage amid an array of small amps, vintage guitars, shakers, and a three-piece ramshackle junkyard drum kit. They're in the middle of a two-month-long cross-country jaunt with Nashville country singer Jonny Corndog, and they're nearly ready to release a new, self-produced album titled O’ Be Joyful on the Dual Tone label.
