Shakey Graves hits the spot for the original music fix you’ve been searching for. Recently championed by NPR Music as "unclassifiably original" and "frighteningly good," Austin's Shakey Graves is popping in at The Southgate House Revival on Wednesday.
Described by the New York Times as making the "one-man band approach look effortless," Shakey stomps out rhythms on a handmade kickdrum built from an old suitcase, laying the foundation for "precise fingerpicking and raw, whiskey-soaked vocals" (Consequence of Sound) . As word of his haunting, at times bizarre lo-fi recordings and contrastingly explosive live shows continues to spread, Shakey Graves is quickly rising from obscurity into the national spotlight. Graves is set to open for Robert Plant presents The Sensational Space Shifters and Old Crow Medicine Show on this tour.
