Huuuuuge thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate our final commons hit last Thursday! Looking out at so many familiar faces from over the years was really serendipitous and we will miss you all dearly! Now to start rehearsing for October! #jimkata #ithaca #livemusic #tatafornow
Hey, you coming to the Ithaca show tonight? - Packy. Last show in Ithaca tonight on the commons! #jimkata #ithaca
Excited to announce one last #Ithaca show closing out the @downtownithaca Summer Concert Series on Thursday September 7th at 8 PM for FREE! One of our favorite places to play we can't wait to see you all there!
To our beloved fans: After several years of touring and putting out albums we have decided to put Jimkata on hold indefinitely. We're not sure for how long we just know that this is the right decision for the moment. At the end of last year, we found ourselves at another turning point in our career and decided that instead of pushing forward it would be best to focus on other projects and our own individual lives for a while. This has been a wild ride (pun intended) that all of us are grateful to have experienced. At times it has felt like floating on an immense wave of energy and at other times like pushing a boulder up a mountain. We're extremely grateful for anyone whose lives were touched by our music, anyone who came to the shows, supported our recording efforts, gave us a sweaty hug, offered us a home for the night, bought a t-shirt, shared a meaningful story with us (of which there are so many we've taken to heart) or for any other incredible or ridiculous moment we shared with you. Its impossible to sum up our gratitude or to neatly summarize our vast treasure trove of both good and occasionally shitty memories. Its a very vulnerable thing to create music and share it with the world, not knowing how it will be received. For it to have been received with love and passion all these years is an honor. And to have existed as an independent band supported by friends, fans, and family for ten years feels like a privilege regardless of any challenges we've faced. But in short, we've busted our ass, given it our all, and for now we're gonna take a step back and bust our ass in other directions. We look forward to staying connected with you and hope to hear from you as we pursue new musical projects. This is not the end of the music, but it is the end of this particular chapter of Jimkata. THANK YOU - Evan, Packy & Aaron Of course we will be doing a few shows to send this off in style... Hope to see you out there!!! 10/19 - Rochester - Flour City Station 10/20 - Buffalo - Iron Works 10/21 - Syracuse - Westcott Theater 10/26 - Albany - The Hollow 10/27 - Manchester, CT - The Main Pub 10/28 - NYC - American Beauty

Wrapping up 10 shows in 11 nights through the southeast tonight in Greenville, NC. Just like any run, there has been a nightly set of challenges and triumphs, attempts and fails, risks and rewards, along with all the other curveballs 2016 has provided us. It's hard to not feel like it's a totally different country now than when we left, but as we keep looking forward we will continue to spread the message of positivity through music and hope that you will join us for the ride! See you soon @crossbones_tavern!! #tourlife #inmotion #greenvillenc #musicheals

There's just something very special about getting a cocktail in one bar, and then walking over to a noodle bar with said cocktail without sneaking it under your jacket or hiding it in your fanny pack because it's 100% ok with everyone, even the fuzz. #legal #opencontainer #savannah

So long grey gal... The unspoken hero of touring. We've spent 189,000 miles worth of time in this work horse of a van all for it to end in exactly the same town we bought it in 4 years earlier... It's a wild ride indeed! So many shows... Thanks van! On to brighter, less smelly pastures! #tour #vanlife
