Gitkin is a four piece band lead by Brian J (ex Pimp Of Joytime member) and will be performing in the balcony "Projector Room" of the historic Lakewood Theater. Space Limited.
"Brian J, known also by his latest creative alias, Gitkin, continues to explore and combine the depth of neo-psychedelia, the exuberance of ’70s Afrobeat, and the mysticism of Saharan folk music.."- Tom Shackleford via Live For Live Music
"Last summer I had the opportunity to spend time with Mdou Moctar and some other great African artists. I have been listening to Tuareg music for years but something about jamming with those guys pushed me to expand my experimentation with the style..." - Brian J.
" On his new full-length release Safe Passage, the itinerant guitar slinger broadens his already rich palette with melodies informed by Greek and Middle Eastern modalities, Peruvian
Chicha and Tuareg Saharan guitar styles. No gimmick, this juxtaposition of gut-bucket blues and funk low-end with unexpectedly twisting lead phrases highlights
the intense flavors found in each savory ingredient."
