Gig Information

Rollin’ into Wellington for a special one-off show
“As Shakey Graves, Rose-Garcia plays a gnarly composite of blues and folk as a one-man-band of epic sonic proportions.” – Paste Magazine

“…this is an act that will blow you away with tsunami-like force, and one that’s well on its way to stepping into the most blinding of spotlights.” – Best New Bands

Shakey Graves is the wild and mesmerizing, gentleman from Austin, Texas.

After a sold-out show in Auckland last year, Shakey Graves will return to New Zealand and treat Wellington audiences with his raw, unearthly howl and foot stompin’ good times when he plays Bodega on Wednesday March 23.

The on-stage persona of Alejandro Rose-Garcia, Shakey Graves began as a private creative outlet. His folky, esoteric bedroom recordings quickly developed a cult following, and he soon began performing live as a one-man band, with a knack for storytelling and an enigmatic stage presence that immediately draws listeners into his strange narrative world.

With the release of his latest album And The War Came on Dualtone Records / Cooking Vinyl, Shakey Graves has become something much bigger. Now joined on stage by a backing band, Shakey Graves is selling out major venues around America, continuing as a regular on the international festival circuit including performances at Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, SXSW, an upcoming performance at the inaugural Auckland City Limits, and took home the Americana Music Association's Emerging Artist of the Year award in 2015.

This is Wellington’s time to witness firsthand his hypnotic live performances and understand the obsessive devotion Shakey Graves has inspired in the hearts of millions.
