Dawes @ T5 - 6/22/13
Dawes

LA folk rockers Dawes released a new album, Stories Don't End, this year and have been on a tour in support of it which rolled through NYC for a big show at Terminal 5 on Saturday (6/22) with Shovels and Rope. They played a bunch of stuff of their new album, a handful of oldies, and did some covers as well, including Traveling Wilburys' "End of the Line," which Shovels and Rope joined them for during the encore. Pictures, videos, and the setlist from that show are in this post.

Dawes hung around NYC, and last night (6/24) then three fourths of the band (minus Wylie Gelber) headed to the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe for a stripped down acoustic set. Regarding the missing member, Now I've Heard Everything explains:

Taylor [Goldsmith] explained that Wylie did not sing, and when some people in the audience said that they had seen him sing on stage during a Dawes show, Taylor joked that "we turn off his microphone; don't tell him." So Taylor played guitar and sang with Griffin and Tay adding harmonies for about 70 minutes.
After that show, the guys headed to a loft in Brooklyn for a late-night private Relix party. Videos from both of those shows are below.

Both the Housing Works show and the Relix party were opened by Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, whose new album, Wassaic Way, comes out on August 6 and was produced by Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone of Wilco (who just played a guest-filled covers set over the weekend). Sarah & Johnny have more upcoming dates of their own including shows in Asbury Park on September 5 at The Saint and in NYC on September 17 at Mercury Lounge with The Melodic. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Dawes will be heading upstate for a Rochester show on July 4 for a show with Doug Paisley, and they'll be bringing their tour back to the NYC-area for another show with Shovels and Rope on July 24 at Capitol Theatre. Tickets for that show are still available. Soon after that Cap show, Dawes also play Camden, NJ's XPoNential Music Festival with a genre-appropriate lineup that also includes Phosphorescent, Lord Huron (who also just played NYC), and more. Tickets for that fest are still available.

Shovels & Rope @ T5 - 6/22/13
Shovels & Rope

Shovels and Rope have some shows of their own too. If you really want to, you can catch them at Jones Beach tonight (6/25) and Wednesday (6/26) opening for Dave Matthews Band, but you can also catch them on their headlining tour which goes down in late summer/early fall with support from Texas singer/songwriter Shakey Graves (who just played NYC on Sunday). That tour comes to NYC on September 12 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/28) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (6/26) at noon.

Field Report at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Field Report

One business leader is prioritizing his mental health over a surging career.

Joseph Kennedy, CEO of Pandora, an Internet radio site, announced Thursday that he's stepping down, even as the company posted a 54 percent jump in revenue. It may seem odd for a successful executive to jump ship at the height of his company's success, but in explaining his decision, Kennedy said he had something more important to attend to.

"As I approach the start of my tenth year, my head is telling me it is time to get to a recharging station sooner rather than later," Kennedy said in an earnings call with analysts, according to USA Today.

It may come as no surprise that Kennedy needs a break. He helped Pandora navigate a series of obstacles since becoming a public company in 2011, including lagging advertisement revenue and issues with royalty costs, according to the Wall Street Journal. What's more surprising is that he actually decided to take that break. [Huffington Post]

On a lighter note for Pandora, they'll be in Austin this week for SXSW and have a number of day and night shows from Tuesday (3/12) through Friday (3/15) at Antone's. Artists playing their shows include Talib Kweli, Angel Haze, Eagles of Death Metal, Richard Thompson Electric Trio, The Gaslamp Killer, Dead Prez, Guards, Surfer Blood, Field Report, Akron/Family, Anamanaguchi, Dawes, and more. You can browse their entire lineup and schedule at Pandora.com/SXSW.

Texas TakeoverTexas Takeover

NYC TONIGHT (10/18).

---

One of the artists playing is Shakey Graves. Check out a new live session by the talented player.

Shakey Graves

Alejandro Rose-Garcia is probably most recognized as "The Swede" responsible for luring Julie's heart on the second season of Friday Night Lights. This is convenient because his one-man band Shakey Graves is proudly, unarguably Texan. Texas forever, they say. His fingerpicking and stomps take on the grizzled weight of the Old West, but they can also expand into balladry aligned with (true Swede) The Tallest Man on Earth. In either scenario, he's a fierce contrast to all the digitally driven bands showing up at CMJ in spades. [The L Magazine]
Austin's Shakey Graves (aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia) is in NYC this week for CMJ and played a couple shows already, including one with Laura Stevenson and the Cans. His last show is tonight at our Texas Takeover Party, which happens at Rebel NYC (10/18) (5 PM doors) and is being presented by our BV Austin site. Admission is free with RSVP and drinks are free while they last too. The rest of the lineup features Robert Ellis, Grandfather Child, Wild Child, The Tontons, New York City Queens, Josiah Hall, and Technicolor Hearts.

Shakey Graves recently filmed a live video for "Roll The Bones," which you can watch below. The video sees Alejandro on stage by himself with guitar, kick drum, and vintage mic, giving some insight as to what you'll probably see at the party tonight.
