roots-rock supergroup, 7 p.m.

Jim Marshall was touched by an angel, and in his case that angel was the rusted-out, white 1982 Ford Bronco that he once owned. Unfortunately, that old gal has moved on to junkyard heaven. “She was put to sleep several years back,” says Marshall, singer and guitarist for Charleston’s Junkyard Angels. “I like to think she is somewhere hanging out with beautiful old rusty-dream vehicles of yesteryear, overlooking majestic kudzu vines and mud pits.” Marshall and company are currently putting the finishing touches on a new LP, Silent Hero, which should be ready any day now. The head Junkyard Angel says you can expect classic honky-tonkers (“10 Jugs In” and “Mississippi Bound”), a couple of acoustic numbers (“My Rosie” and “Kate’s Song”), and plenty of tear-in-your-beer pain (“[I Won’t] Bring You Down,” “Daddy’s Drinkin’ Problem,” and “Faith [Will Lead You Home]”). The recording of Silent Hero was a bit of a slog, but Marshall is proud of his bandmates. “There was a time there where it looked like we might not make it through and pull it off, but we did and I think, personally and as a band, we are much stronger and connected through all the struggle,” he says. —Chris Haire SATURDAY
