In addition to band names starting with S, husband-and-wife collaborations were the name of the game at Off Broadway Saturday night.

Shivering Timbers kickstarted the night with a distinctively sassy set. Vocalist and bassist Sarah Benn crooned to the crowd in her dangerously short dress while husband Jayson picked up the pace with his slick and aggressive guitar riffs.

Though the audience strayed from pushing up to the stage during Shivering Timbers' set, everyone wanted to be apart of the action when Shovels and Rope grabbed their guitars and took to the stage. There were several apologies from Carey Ann Hearst for being a bit under the weather, but few took note. With the exception of sympathy for a traveling band there was little reason to, as Shovels and Rope barreled through their set.

"We're going to play a slow one on a account of not feeling so well," announced Michael Trent at one point. But after a quick discussion and a few hits to the drum, the duo changed their mind and tore into another foot-stompin' ballad. The set was sultry and sweet -- a mess of sweaty smiles -- and from in front of the stage to the balcony everyone was in on the action. If that performance was an under-the-weather Shovels and Rope then I can't wait to see what they're capable of at their best.
