Shovels & Rope, Denver 

When: Sat., April 6, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $12-14
Husband-and-wife duo Shovels and Rope are perpetually on the road. That fact shakes out into their music—dusty country ditties drenched in rock 'n' roll grease. These South Carolinians keep it simple: guitars and drums, making some big sounds. For the past three years, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent have taken on the country, dropping harmonious ballads and boot stompers onto small rooms and overflowing festivals, like last summer's Pickathon. The excellent "Birmingham" (recently performed on Late Show with David Letterman) sounds so worn-in, you might think it's a long-lost gem from the early 20th century. At the very least, it'll make you remember there once was a genre called alt-country. MARK LORE
