I first encountered Shakey Graves' music at Pickathon last summer. I was on the shady path leaving the woods and heard the strong plucking of a banjo, accompanied by husky, faraway vocals. The one-man band from Texas has a comforting, familiar feel, like summer evenings spent on porches sipping whiskey, with simply strummed blues chords and stripped-down, sentimental lyrics. Graves—AKA Alejandro Rose-Garcia—is not reinventing folk or country, but brings a captivating genuineness with him onstage, and is definitely worth seeing live. Both early and late shows are sold out, but you might want to check Craigslist. RACHEL MILBAUER
