Hey, It’s Shakey Graves Day
Today is Shakey Graves Day.
Shakey Graves (a “gentleman from Texas”) is a local musician with a national following because he is wildly talented, insufferably good-looking, and somehow still well-liked and gentlemanly. He’s that guy you WANT to hate because he’s just soooo good at everything and soooo un-smug about it. I’ve seen him play loads of times; I will see him play loads of times more. I love him.
And every year (I believe this is the second year running), from February 9-th-11th, he changes all of his albums to “Name Your Price” on Bandcamp. New stuff, old stuff, live stuff, EPs, LPs, All Ps — everything is there for the taking at whatever price you deem reasonable. On top of that, he’s donating $.50 from every sale to a good cause. So yeah, even if you pay $1 for the entire catalog, $.50 is going to a good cause (but maybe don’t be that cheap).
On top top of that, his next show is the NEIL FEST: Celebrating The Music Of Neil Young, which is a benefit for the Refuge Foundation For The Arts, on February 18th at the Paramount.
