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.
