BLIND J. WAKINS

SATURDAY APRIL 2ND AT 5:00PM

"My eye a broken, but I can see just fine" -Blind J. Wakins

Blind J. Wakins is a songwriter, avid smoker, and professional loiterer.  He stands for and among the reckless dreamers; sometimes he sits.  Florida born and not thrilled about it, he has moved around country in search of an answer to the peoples' question, "what the hell am I gonna do?"  Currently contributing the crowding-out of an otherwise cool city, Wakins is a stranger in a weird land.  No, not Austin, the other one.  As a Poet and musician, he has cleverly appropriated folk-country and ragtime traditions to create something resembling a unique sound.  When this fails however, his literalism makes for an honest song.  Wakins is currently nearing completion of a debut EP, being produced and recorded by Mike Coykendall in Portland, OR.
