There are one-man bands, and there is Shakey Graves. The Austin-based bluesman (born Alejandro Rose-García) is the complete package: subtle, tasteful fingerpicking, solid percussion using both feet, a whisky-soaked voice, amazing stage presence and two albums (2011’s Roll the Bones and 2012’s Donor Blues EP, containing 2009 home recordings) with enough good songs to prove he’s a lot more than just a novelty act. His performance at 2013’s South by Southwest was one of the festivals’ most buzzed about events with even The New York Times’ socks being knocked off. His reputation as a live act is so strong that the dude even has his own official Austin holiday (February 9). Sold Out, 8pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene, (830) 606-1281
