Named for the 1985 “so bad it’s good” martial arts movie Gymkata, Ithaca-based electropop trio Jimkata has been making their anthemic, synth-washed sounds for the last five years. This month, the band released its fan-funded fifth album, In Motion (Independent), which they’re promoting with a performance at Capitol Region venue the Hollow on February 20.

Self-described as “a triumph of swirling analog synths and breezy pop hooks in the vein of Yeasayer and Broken Bells,” Jimkata is comprised of Evan Friedell, Aaron Gorsch, and Packy Lunn and regularly tours nationally while remaining a top attraction in their collegiate hometown.

Here’s the group playing live in our region last year:


Jimkata will perform at the Hollow in Albany on February 20 at 9pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show. For more information, visit http://www.thehollowalbany.com/.

They can just head over to Hudson and Chatham for free Cirkus After School classes with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus!
