A few months back, beloved Charleston folk rockers Shovels and Rope stepped on stage for a performance on Austin City Limits, fulfilling a rite of passage of sorts for ascendant musicians like S&R's Cary Ann Hearst and husband Michael Trent.
Today, the public TV music performance show announced an airdate for the duo's appearance and released video of one of the songs recorded at the show. The track, "Gasoline," off their 2008 self-titled album, is one you don't hear as often as some of their more recent earworms like "Birmingham" and "Keeper."The performance comes to a PBS station near you on October 19.
Shovels and Rope has been busy crisscrossing these here 50 states over the past few months on a marathon nationwide tour and announced just today that they would be playing in support of the Avett Brothers on New Year's Eve in the Avetts' hometown of Charlotte.
