Jimkata Announce 2014 Spring Tour Dates

Jimkata’s innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital turned the heads of critics and musicians when it dropped in the Fall of 2012, solidifying the band’s reputation as forward-thinking artists to pay attention to. Having been a mainstay of the Northeast jam circuit since 2006, Jimkata’s refined electro-rock sound is one of a band that has found its voice after years of experimentation. It’s more indie rock than jam, and more electro-pop than EDM; yet the four-piece appeals to each of these audiences. In the spirit of LCD Soundsystem, MGMT and Talking Heads, Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create moods not just for fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation. A staple of the festival circuit from the Rockies to the Atlantic, Jimkata’s 2013 schedule included heavy hitters like Gathering of The Vibes, Summer Camp, Catskill Chill and Rootwire, on top of hosting their very own inaugural festival, Katalyst.

Video ~ Mike Gordon Announce 2014 Tour Dates

The run will include shows at New York City’s Webster Hall (March 1), the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles (March 17) and the historic Fillmore in San Francisco (March 18) and the band’s first performance in Vancouver, BC, Canada (March 22). He’ll be joined on the road by his longtime band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Tom Cleary (keyboards) and Todd Isler (drums). The band’s new repertoire will be augmented by hints of secret synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.
