Shakey Graves, real name Alejandro Rose-Garcia, was named by NPR as one of the top ten artists fans should’ve known in 2012. With two successful albums under his belt blending an emotionally driven blend of folk and blues, Graves is on the path to greatness with highly anticipated shows around the country. The Austin-based performer has knocked audiences out in New York’s anti-folk scene, the underground music world of Los Angeles and was recently a headlining performer at Oregon’s own Pickathon Festival with shows that have been termed as mesmerizing.
Graves will be back in Portland for a show at The Wonder Ballroom on Friday, November 14th. An all ages show that starts at 8:00 pm with a performance by Rayland Baxter. Tickets are $15.00 through www.woderballroom.com. The Wonder Ballroom is located at 128 NE Russell Street. Jump on tickets right away as this show is guaranteed to sell out.
