HCC hosts several events throughout the year to promote its mission of conserving and preserving open spaces, scenic vistas, and natural habitats.

Thursday, July 17th: Shakey Graves Benefit Concert at Stubbs

Shakey Graves’ “stunning” (KUT-FM) one-man show has made him a hero in his hometown, so much so that the Mayor of Austin gave him his own holiday. In 2012, KUT-FM picked Shakey Graves as one of the best new artists and The Austin Chronicle called ROLL THE BONES one of the year’s best. NPR Music called his debut album “Unclassifiably (sp) original and frighteningly good” while Daytrotter said “Incredible storytelling…the full-bodied richness of a novella, set in the sketchy, rattlesnake-infested wilds of the southern parts of America.” Join us as Shakey, AKA Alejandro Skylar Rose-Garcia, plays a benefit for Hill Country Conservancy at the intimate Stubbs indoor venue – it will be an evening to remember!
