Live Music: Shovelman

October 18, 2013 - 6:00pm8:15pm

Armed with a collection of pawnshop effects pedals and an old barn shovel-turned-slide guitar, Shovelman plays old-fashioned folktronica-grooves looped straight out of the ground. The sounds of Mississippi Delta blues from the electro-psychedelic future collide with the antiquated rubble of lyrical one-man-band hoboetry.
