I saw Shakey Graves play for the first time on February 14, 2013 at Bob Schneider’s annual Valentine’s Day concert at the Moody Theater.An unassuming skinny white kid rocking a 50’s era cowboy suit walked up with a suitcase and electric guitar.Before I even decided what to expect, Shakey launched into “Dusty Lion” and immediately won over the crowd.“Bully’s Lament” followed, and the 2-song set was enough to introduce Shakey Graves to Austin at large.Better music writers have been stumped trying to classify the Sound of Shakey, so I’m not even going to try.Safe to say you’ve never heard anything quite like it.
As the rest of the country slowly begins to discover our hometown boy, we’ll always have the hundreds of shows he has played in Austin to reflect on, culminating in his best performance yet on one of music’s grandest stages.Shakey Graves, aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia from Austin, Texas, plays a gnarly composite of blues and folk as a one-man-band of epic sonic proportions.The sound emitted from his hollow body guitar, mildly distorted amp and suitcase drum belie the young singer’s lean frame.Kelly fan (she appreciates the complexities in the R&B opera "Trapped in the Closet") and a hardcore Sherlock Holmes aficionado (she's seen and read everything Sherlock-related, except the Star Trek: Next Gen episodes featuring his character; they're next on her list). I’ve always toured with good friends, and long drives are fine because I’m really into listening to music or audio books. I try my best to tour with the people I’m closest to that I know I can put up with. Sean: Yeah, and also, if you can tour with other introverts, it’s really good. Kristen: So, you guys are introverts, I’m an introvert. [Clinking of glasses]Sean: It’s great getting into close spaces with introverts … We met up with Esmé at Revolution Brewing while she was in town recording material for an upcoming solo record. Esmé: We did a tour together – [points to Paleo] the two of us – in April, both as solo musicians. Paleo: I think it was “My Young Man.” And then with Sean, I actually used to live in Chicago and met him here. The people I tour with are really good about either having a good conversation or staying silent for hours at a time.
