Here we are once again staring down another weekend of ACL – and we couldn’t be more excited! Our final ACL 2018 preview is from native Austinite Alejandro Rose-Garcia, known around the globe as Shakey Graves. Shakey Graves is inseparable from the Austin music experience and when he performs at his hometown’s eponymous music festival, there’s a lot of local love in the crowd (case in point: last Sunday).
Shakey Graves plays this Sunday at Austin City Limits Music Festival, 7:00pm at the Barton Springs Stage. Shakey’s about to embark on an international tour and won’t be back in the states until December but we’ve got lots of goodies to check out in the meantime. Speaking of which…back in April, Shakey Graves released the critically acclaimed full-length Can’t Wake Up and joined us in Studio 1A around the same time. Here’s a cut from that 1A appearance to prime you for this last ACL weekend, “Dining Alone”.
Frequent fans of KUTX and lovers of the local music scene alike are sure to recognize the name, Duncan Fellows. And as you might know, this previous KUTX Artist of the Month isn’t one dude, it’s a whole crew of ’em! In the five formal years they’ve been together, the five friends in Duncan Fellows have engineered their indie rock inflections across two EPs and one full-length, most recently with the 2017 album, Both Sides of the Ceiling.
You’ve got plenty of time to catch up with Duncan Fellows’ Studio 1A appearance and My KUTX session before seeing them tomorrow 2:15pm at the Tito’s Handmade Vodka stage. Here’s an awesome hopping off point for Duncan Fellows and a great way to wax into this ACL weekend, the live rendition of “Kerosene”!
Historically associated with local post-rock psych outfit Bright Light Social Hour, Curtis Roush has recently been killing it with his independent chops. Roush released his debut solo album Cosmic Campfire back in February, illuminating an expansive acoustic-psychedelic spectrum of sounds created with a wide array of instruments – entirely performed by Roush himself. Roush joined us in Studio 1A around the same time Cosmic Campfire came out, and you can see him live this Friday, 11:15am at the Miller Lite Stage at Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Relive the 1A magic before making it to Zilker this weekend with the live version of “Real Love”!
