Hanni El Khatib Preps For 2012 Tour

With a new album out in 2011, San Francisco rocker Hanni El Khatib is preparing to embark on a month-long European tour in February.

But first, El Khatib will play a show Friday night in Los Angeles at The Bootleg Theater, for which he stopped by the Gretsch Showroom in Burbank to pick up an Electromatic Duo Jet with Bigsby.

El Khatib’s debut full-length, Will The Guns Come Out (released in September), features eight original tracks and three covers.

Below is the official music video for “Loved One:”
