If you missed Alejandro Rose-Garcia, also known as Shakey Graves, this summer at Red Rocks, worry not because he’s showing his love for the Mile High City this week. Earlier today on Facebook he announced that Shakey Graves will play a free show in Denver on Saturday… at least we could assume so.

“Rumor has it, in two days, I’ll be playing a free show in a place that rhymes with….uh…benver….” – Shakey Graves on Facebook

Denver favorite Shakey Graves is known for his charismatic live shows featuring a talented ensemble of musicians. The folk-rock artist has toured with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Mumford & Sons, and has an upcoming show at Telluride Blues & Brews on September 16. He also recently co-headlined Red Rocks with Devil Makes Three this summer.

Between Red Rocks, Telluride and a free surprise show all within a year, it’s safe to say that not only is Colorado a fan of Shakey Graves, but it seems he’s also a fan of us. The venue and time of the show is still unknown—the Facebook post above is all that’s been announced so far—but check back here for more information as it becomes available.
