CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!
On Friday May 1 at 10:30PM, Rhythm Lab Radio is proud to welcome Nick Hakim with special guest Ben Talmi for special late night concert at the Pabst Pub inside the Pabst Theater.
Raised in Washington, D.C. in a household overflowing with musical diversity ranging from soul, hip-hop, go-go, folk music and more from his Chilean and Peruvian parents, it comes as no surprise that Nick tends to blend genres, mixing the ambient airy sound of psychedelic, with the raw gut-wrenching emotion of the blues.
He performs a broad range of the instruments heard on the EP alongside shared production duties, with an early admiration for Marvin Gaye and Harry Nilsson seeping through these introductory recordings. The vulnerability of Nick’s vocals, intimate and silken, is a powerful instrument in its own right that never pushes itself to excess.
Hakim explains of his debut EP, “I was caught in a hazy gloom, alone in my room, filled up with booze while writing this music. I would write very early in the morning after nights of no sleep. Dunkin Donuts coffee wasmy friend. I would set up a mic,record, and later make sense of whatever came out.”
We are huge fan of Nick Hakim and want to do something really fun. We are going to make this show special for 6 couples (or friends). Rhythm Lab Radio will be giving 6 pairs of tickets to see Nick Hakim plus six $25 gift card to Rumpus Room. This could be a perfect date night.
