We’re Not Dead Yet Pt. 2

Shakey GravesAfter a recently-relocated-to-Austin coworker went to Blues on the Green was stunned by the number of people and quality of the show, I figured I would check in on the last show of the season to see what’s doing. After all, live music is dying in Austin.

Shakey Graves has been on a roll lately, playing to bigger and bigger crowds at festivals, getting booked on late night television. Fellow photographers that were at Lolla said his set was a festival highlight. The local boy, born and raised, is poised to be a big export. Blues on the Green is certainly not pigeon-holing artists to the blues anymore as they also threw Hail-Mary with Rider Against the Storm, a hip-hop collective of good musicians and two-time winners of the Austin Music Awards’ Band of the Year.

Blues On The Green

Blues on the Green goes down this evening starting at 7:30pm with Los Lonely Boys headlining the event. If you’ve never done the Blues thing, I’d suggest showing up early with a folding chair, a cooler of your favorite beverage & maybe some treats to snack on during the show. You don’t have to pay anything to get in but you will pay to park at Zilker…. so park somewhere else and walk. You can read more about Blues on the Green on the KGSR website.

Don’t forget about the always fun Blues on the Green this evening with the legendary Marcia Ball. Bring yourself a chair to sit on and something good to drink (alcohol is okay). Check out the KGSR website to find out more about the event. Things usually get started over at Zilker around 7 pm.
