Jimkata Plays The Main Pub in Manchester on March 29
Electronic beats and jam-band rock, it turns out, go together like stoned hippies and parking-lot grilled cheese sandwiches. For some time, Jimkata (pictured) has mixed/mingled analog synths and fat bass drops with guitars and traditional song structures, displaying their chops at Camp Bisco, Mountain Jam and other noodle-fests, and the relatively recent rise of EDM has made them sound even more de rigueur. Head to Manchester's Main Pub to hear Jimkata — currently touring in support of Die Digital — to hear them in an intimate setting, without having to worry about festival walkers trampling on your backpack.
