Shakey Graves Day at Antones With Calliope Musicals

Back in 2012, The City of Austin declared February 9th “Shakey Graves Day” and every year since, Mr. Graves has used that date to try and give back with jos benefit concert. This year the 7th Annual Shakey Graves Day celebration took place at the iconic Antone’s with special guests and Austin’s 2017 Band of the Year, Calliope Musicals. The proceeds from the benefit concert went to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and The Southern Poverty Law Center.

In addition to the benefit, Shakey made his entire record catalog available via Bandcamp at a “pay what you want” price for 72 hours. This included all major releases as well as 14 previous SG Day releases. He also premiered two brand new tracks, “Counting Sheep” and “Kids These Days”, off his upcoming record via the Sleep EP. The full album Can’t Wake Up will be releases May 4, 2018. The album can currently be pre-ordered from Shakey’s Bandcamp page here.
