The Paper Kites play Spiritbar this Monday.

Great live music coming to Nelson

There’s a great lineup of bands set to play Spiritbar over the next month.

On The Road Management is looking forward to an exciting 2014. With Josh Ritter (January 28) nearly sold out, and Harry Manx (March 8) recently on-sale — there’re some amazing Capitol Theatre shows on the horizon, and some big ones about to be announced.

In the meantime, there’s also a great lineup of bands set to play Spiritbar over the next month.

Australian indie-rockers The Paper Kites will bring their critically acclaimed material to Spiritbar this Monday, October 28. Having just toured with City and Color, The Paper Kites are certainly a band on the rise.

The following week:  Wednesday, November 6, The Strumbellas will take the stage following Teton Gravity Research’s Way Of Life movie premiere.

On Friday, November 8, Matt Mays will be playing a very

special acoustic show at 8 p.m., and then our very own Shred Kelly will play a late show —stoking the Spiritbar stage at midnight!

Along with these shows, On The Road Management is happy to announce that Royal Wood will return to Nelson (January 22), and Kytami also returns to Spiritbar (February 15).
