Shakey Graves – “Roll the Bones”

Shakey Graves

Running The Burning Ear for over 4 and a half years I’m usually the one dragging friends to go see bands they don’t know. Thankfully my girlfriend is also a pretty badass music lover/sharer and this past Sunday she dragged me to see Shakey Graves. Just because I had never heard if him until a day before doesn’t mean that he didn’t pack The Bootleg Theater to the seams. Everyone on the room was locked into his one man shred-folk performance and I was no exception. Listen to the album below if you like. Download it for pay-whatever if you want. But make sure you watch the video below it to get a feel for the higher energy magic of his live show. He is on tour through Halloween so make no excuse and get tickets now. One man, his guitar, and a drum kit made from an old suitcase never sounds so good.
