The genre-crossing turntablist’s Southern spring tour brings him back to Charleston for the first time since his two-night stint at the Coliseum with Widespread Panic last October.

DJ Logic (a.k.a Jason Kibler) came up in the hip-hop scene of the Bronx during the 1980s and ’90s. He initially garnered attention for lending elements of vintage soul, funk, and jazz into hip-hop with his group Project Logic. Over the years, he collaborated in the studios and on the road with a wide variety of funky acts, including Panic, Medeski Martin & Wood, Vernon Reid, moe., the John Popper Project, the Roots, John Mayer, Bob Belden, Jack Johnson, and many others. His latest solo album is titled Zen of Logic (Ropeadope Records).

N.C. electro-groove duo Eymarel — keyboardist/singer Mary Frances and drummer Lee Allen — opens the show on Friday. Admission is $12 in advance (by way of www.etix.com) and $15 at the door.
