1_Shakey Graves_Newport Folk Festival 2015

I’m far from perfect, sometimes I just never catch on to an act even though good sense and countless recommendations from others have warned me that I probably should reconsider. Time to Shakey Graves, the Austin-based project of Alejandro Rose-Garcia, to that list.

In a matter of seconds of his set, the energy of him and his three-piece band has summoned everyone out of their seats and up on their feet. The blues-inspired music from Shakey Graves has folk-rock in its spirit, but done so with a dirty garage stomp. The amount of energy that they unleashed on the crowd was one of the best surprises of my entire Newport Folk Festival weekend, the sort of thing that I will never forget.

I hope to catch an even longer set from them when they come to New York for a performance at Terminal 5 on November 11.
