Nelson musician Rich Rabnett to share the stage with fellow locals

Rich Rabnett and other Nelson musicians such as Lint, Kashoo and Vs. will play Spiritbar on Friday, September 7.

Local musician Rich Rabnett curates a fantastic night of local talent at Spiritbar on Friday, September 7. Renowned for his guitar and production work with his own projects Rabnett 5, Lint, and Drive If You Must, the evening has an open-ended concept, sure to produce tasty results.

Three projects will be performing two 30 minute sets during the night, but their set times and order is determined by a draw at 10:45 p.m. The aforementioned Lint plays a dance friendly mix of jazz funk, with Jimmy Lewis (Wassabi Collective, Vortex) on drums, and Jesse Lee (bass) and Ben Euerby (keys) from Brian Rosen And The Whatnow. They’ll also have Clinton Swanson on sax for a few tunes.

Kashoo is a live electronica duo, with Ness (Man In Havana) on keys and programming, and Jacob Simenuk on upright bass and samples. They have a new album out, and are performing their first live set in over a year.

Vs. features Matt on the mic, with Yan Zombie on the decks and samples, dropping wicked hip hop rhymes and beats.

All three acts are Kootenay Music Award nominees or winners, and Rabnett strongly hinted that some one-off collaborations, jams, and special guests will appear. Only $5 before 11 p.m.
