Gyspy circus act Blackberry Wood are throwing a zebra-themed bash at Spiritbar on March 28 to promote their latest album.

Blackberry Wood to rock Spiritbar

Zebra-themed bash will also promote release of band's latest album Wild West Medicine Show.

Gyspy circus band Blackberry Wood recently released their latest album Wild West Medicine Show, and they’re coming to Spiritbar on Saturday to introduce it to the Kootenays.

“I’m super excited to get out there. We played a few New Years ago with Shred Kelly at The Royal and that’s one of my favourite shows we’ve ever done,” said lead singer Kris Wood, who will be joined onstage by bandmates Shannon Marie, Carlos Monzon and Annie Degroot.

Wood has a reason to remember that show: his wife was pregnant, and it was one of the last shows before she gave birth. Now he’s coming back as the father of a four-year-old, Maverick, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten how to party.

This concert’s theme is black and white, so the band is encouraging everyone to show up in zebra-themed costumes.

“I might bring out my zebra head. It usually trips people out,” he said.

Wood said their new album includes two songs he’s been tweaking and rewriting for years, so he’s thrilled to finally be able to share them with Nelson fans.

He said they filled their recording space with a live audience to get crowd reactions during their songs, amplifying the circus atmosphere.

Blackberry Wood will perform multiple sets over the course of the evening. In between each Wood will be DJ-ing, playing electro-swing.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Show at 10 p.m. Advance tickets are $10 and are available at the Hume Hotel.
