Getting antsy about the release of Shovels & Rope's new LP Swimmin' Time? Have yourself some satisfaction a few days before you buy your own copy by hearing the record in its entirety now on NPR's First Listen. You can also read our review online or in this week's City Paper.
To get your own physical copy, Charlestonians are invited to Monster Music and Movies in West Ashley at 6 p.m. on Aug. 25 for a Swimmin' Time listening party one day ahead of the official release. The store will be raffling off free copies of Johnny 99, the EP ShoRo recorded last year at Jack White's Third Man Records in Nashville. Did we mention there's also free pizza?
