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.

Shakey Graves is incredible. We hope some of you who were in NYC for CMJ got a chance to witness his greatness. He is truly special.

I had the chance to see shakey graves during the cmj. it was actually funny because it was an open bar and the opening act with the violin and the synth guy was not really my cup of beer so to say. i stuck it out and was lucky enough to catch this dude, and man he really blew me away. hope he comes to nyc again, he really deserves to be heard
