Shovels and Rope, Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores

When: Wed., Feb. 15, 9 p.m. 2012

Charleston's Shovels and Rope teams singer-songwriters Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent as a folk duo made perfectly sloppy with the help of a punk-rock spirit. While they have laudable solo careers of their own, Hearst and Trent reunited two years ago to tour behind their collaborative 2008 record, which saw the pair trading lead vocals and swapping guitars, harmonica and a simple drum kit on freewheeling country tunes. No matter how beaten-up the songs may seem, there's little hiding that this is some of the best twang around. Chapel Hill quartet Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores open with ardent heartland rock. —Spencer Griffith
