music :: shovels and rope

Recently I had the pleasure to see Shovels & Rope play the Bowery Ballroom. Love these guys and on stage their energy is infectious. You just want to be a part of their magic and happiness. Just the two of them, singing and playing along with each other. A couple guitars and a bandana tied up drum kit. Awesome. 
Bowery Ballroom is one of my favorite venues in the city. It is small but in a really amazing intimate way. And there's this great bar downstairs for drinks if you get there early. Barstools, couches and the like. The merch table is downstairs too and most of the shows that play the Bowery have pretty awesome stuff to check out. So anyway if you haven't heard of these guys yet and missed them on Letterman recently, you are missing out and you should listen to them asap. Side Note :: their solo albums {Michael Trent & Carrie Ann Hearst} are pretty awesome and worth a listen as well. Especially this song… I cannot stop listening. 

:: Birmingham Lyrics ::

"Made a little money playing in the bars, 
With two beat up drums and two old guitars,
 From the Crescent City to the Great Salt Lake,
 It ain't what you got, it's what you make"
