We've recorded him several times in the woods, but for his first in-studio at KEXP, Shakey Graves shook the dust off (unfortunately, on our floor) for a rowdy set of blues fueled rock live on the Morning Show. Sure, it was early for Alejandro Rose-Garcia and his co-producer and collaborator Chris Boosahda but damn if they didn't turn the session into the most rollicking and verbally entertaining you're likely to hear. Watch as he and Boo perform three songs from the forthcoming album, And the War Came (due October 7 on Dualtone) plus and older favorite, and learn why Shakey's so beloved that his hometown of Austin, Texas, declared Shakey Graves Day, which he celebrates annually with a great big party.
