L.A.’s favorite blues-garage-rockin’ bad boy, Hanni El Khatib, put down his skateboard to play an exciting show full of  classic swagger at the Echo. In celebration of his highly anticipated debut album, Will the Guns Come Out—Hanni packed the intimate Echo up for an evening of sexy riffs and gangsta howls. Yes, we said “gangsta.” It was a hot, sweaty evening full of righteous 50s/60s inspired tunes, fit to resurrect any greaser from the dead.

Check out the photos of Hanni El Khatib below and be sure to cop his debut album, Will the Guns Come Out! It’s out now via Innovative Leisure/Stones Throw.
