Nelsonville Music Festival Preview: Shakey Graves

The Nelsonville Music Festival starts on Thursday and we’re ready to share our absolute favorite solo artist on the bill, Shake Graves.


Shakey Graves is a RethinkPopMusic favorite as we have covered his exceptional talent when he came through Columbus with some Austin friends. And if you aren’t familiar, the Shakey Graves set up is a man, a guitar and a suitcase contraption acting as a kick drum, but housing whatever it is that gives his guitar that tasty tone.


And like our friends Lucius, Shakey Graves will be playing two sets at the Nelsonville Music Festival. On Friday Shakey Graves will play the Nelsonville Music Festival main stage at 4:30pm and then again in the No-Fi Cabin at 9:15pm. Without knowing of anyone joining Alejandro on stage, it’s hard to imagine there will be a vast difference in the performance. Regardless, if it sounds anything like this, Shakey Graves is an artist not to be missed at the Nelsonville Music Festival.
