The Current Swell plays Spirtbar on Saturday

Upcoming shows at Spiritbar

On The Road Management has been carefully working the past into a very exciting future

Local music fans often wonder which acts will play Nelson during the colder months, and with that in mind, the team at On The Road Management has been carefully working the past into a very exciting future.

Up-and-coming acts: Current Swell (September 28), Paper Kites (October 28), and Matt Mays (November 8) will make their Nelson debuts at Spiritbar this fall — while legends Elliott Brood (September 24), Ron Sexsmith (October 8), and The Sadies (October 22) will also be in town to perform music from their well established catalogs. Tickets for all performances are currently on sale through the Hume Hotel.

There’s a notable “One Night Only:” Lee Harvey Osmond (Tom Wilson, of Blackie and The Rodeo Kings) joins Gordie Johnson on October 18 at Spiritbar. They have been paired together exclusively for Nelson music lovers!

While most of On The Road Management’s shows take place at Spiritbar, they do have some scheduled at the Capitol Theatre. Harry Manx (March 8, 2014) is currently on sale through the theatre’s boxoffice, and details for Josh Ritter (January 28, 2014) will be announced shortly.
