Expect soft folk music from Shakey Graves at the Peacock Room
Thursday, Feb. 28 â€“ Shakey Graves
with He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister, Paper Bird, the Sh-Booms
The Peacock Room
1321 N. Mills Ave.
Oh, thank the honeyed folk gods for the NPR darling from Austin, Texas, Shakey Graves. His musicâ€™s so soft and weathered, existing in that sonic sweet spot where Elvis Perkins and the Bonnie Prince himself choose to dwell. Shakey Graves is the music youâ€™d play throughout your whole house on a day spent luxuriating in your own space. And itâ€™s there, with a leg slung over the side of your couch and your eyes closed, that you actually hear the lyrics to â€śGeorgia Moonâ€ť off 2011â€™s Roll the Bones and become lightheartedly introspective. It will be interesting to contrast his set with Heâ€™s My Brother, Sheâ€™s My Sister, the wild garage-country band that features a party-starting tap dancer as a serious part of their percussion section. Heaped on top of that, you also get to see darling locals the Sh-Booms plus Colorado indie-folk band Paper Bird. Slow clap, Peacock, for an incredible lineup. â€“ Ashley Belanger
