Jahnavi and Addison, founding members of The Love Sprockets, made their way to Austin from Vermont in 2013 with little more than their bicycles and the tools of their trade – mandolin, fiddle, ukulele, and harmonica. They’d spun quite a few new tunes along the way, and when they arrived to their destination, it didn’t take long for them to meet bassist Aaron Watson and drummer/vocalist Pete Van Dyck to get the ball rolling. The Love Sprockets pour heart and soul into a high-energy whirlwind of original bluegrass, gospel, blues and folk songs.
The band recently started an August residency at the Historic Scoot Inn, 1308 E. 4th St. You can see them perform there Monday nights throughout this month. Tonight, they share the bill with Southern Gold and Javelina. Doors open at 8 p.m. A great way to get rid of the Monday blahs. Recommended.
