SHAKEY GRAVES


BIO:
Shakey Graves is being hailed as the best damn one man show in Austin. His set involves a hand made suitcase kick drum and feverish finger picking which follows in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, Leo Kottke and Michael Hurley… Recently, Shakey Graves was named one of the 12 artists of 2012 by KUT 90.5 and has been bestowed with the distinct honor of having FEBRUARY 9TH proclaimed “SHAKEY GRAVES DAY” by the City of Austin.
