Pro snowboarder Wyatt Caldwell goes for broke somewhere in the Selkirks. Beautiful imagery like this will be par for the course at Friday's annual Backyard Booty celebration at The Capitol Theatre

Backyard Booty returns to Capitol Theatre

Kootenay Mountain Magazine hosts the annual event this Friday, December 13.

The Kootenays favourite magazine will be live, interactive and on-stage Friday night at Nelson’s Capitol Theatre.

An annual sell-out and pre-winter celebration of Kootenay-esque proportions, Kootenay Mountain Culture’s Backyard Booty will feature all sorts of exclusive film, photography and spoken word work from many of Nelson’s world-travelled and world-calibre artists.

Nelson’s Cultural Ambassador for 2013, Lucas Myers will be there, so too will Retallack Lodge’s legendary Karl The Gnarl, along with mind-blowing photo presentations from Kari Medig, Brian Ralph, Douglas Noblett and Shawn Morris, plus reels from The Rocky Mountain Sherpas and Sweetgrass productions — yup, the same fellas who did the all-naked at Whitewater ski clip that went viral online!

The event will be hosted by KMC co-publisher Mitch Scott.

“Everyone should come on out for a great Friday night,” says Scott, “we’ve got a truck load of great prizes this year from businesses all over town, a portion of the proceeds go to the new Nelson climbing Wall project, plus I’m gonna emcee — and I can sometimes be a really funny dude!”

Tickets are available at The Capitol Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m.
