Charleston’s Shovels & Rope plays NYC’s Bowery Ballroom this week.

It’s a “jam”-packed (see what we did there?!) week this week, with some all-time faves making their way to our little city by the sea. Canada’s country-turned-folk-rocking Kathleen Edwards returns to City Winery on Wednesday, and you can bet your bottom-dollar that we’ll be there with eyes peeled for any sight of Justin Vernon (Bon Iver front-man who co-produced Edwards’ latest release, Voyageur). Thursday brings Charleston lovelies Shovels and Rope, alongside opener Andrew Combs, to Bowery Ballroom. Don’t stay out too late, though, because we know you’re going to see The Lumineers on Friday … and Saturday? Choose one – don’t ruin a good thing.
