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.
