About Shakey Graves:
Alejandro Rose-Garcia a.k.a. Shakey Graves announced his newest album ‘Can’t Wake Up’ with a simple message to his fans – “Next album. New sound. Sell your suspenders.”  That tongue-in-cheek statement, though, was a genuine attempt to prepare his followers for a major sonic shift for the Texas songwriter, who got his start performing as a one-man band, culminating with an Americana Music Awards win for “Emerging Artist of the Year” behind his breakout full-length album, ‘And The War Came.’  Now armed with a full band, Rose-Garcia leaves behind much of that stripped-down, folk-y sound. ‘Can’t Wake Up’ takes his songwriting in a “decidedly bigger direction” full of “lush indie compositions” (Consequence of Sound), drawing on another set of his musical influences, ranging from the Beatles and Harry Nilsson to Elliott Smith, Broken Social Scene, Built to Spill and other ’90s indie rock bands.

About Dr. Dog:
Beloved indie outfit Dr. Dog experienced an intense transformation with the group’s brilliant new album, ‘Critical Equation.’ The most infectious and adventurous collection Dr. Dog has laid to tape yet, the record was born from a journey of doubt and discovery, a heavy, sometimes painful reckoning that ultimately brought the band closer together with more strength and clarity than ever before. Call it an existential awakening, call it a dark night of the soul, whatever it was, it fueled one of the most fertile creative periods in the group’s history.  What the group wants is fairly simple: to make music they love with their friends, and have fun doing it.
