Nat Keefes Concert Carnival
On December 20 Hot Buttered Rums Nat Keefe will host his second annual Concert Carnival at San Franciscos The Independent. On his MySpace page the guitarist describes the event in the following words: This is a multi-media, cabaret-style variety show with amazing artists from across the country. The program this year will be almost all new material and will feature a different cast of characters from many artistic disciplines. However, the values of the Concert Carnival remain the same: This is an opportunity for performers (myself included) to step outside of their normal performing context and try new stuff in new ways.
In addition to Keefe, the event will feature performances by Zach Gill (ALO/Jack Johnson), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident), Patch (Heavyweight Dub Champion), Evie Ladin (Stairwell Sisters), Keith Terry (the body percussionist from Crosspulse), Matt Butler (Everyone Orchestra), the Sweet Snacks and the entire Hot Buttered Rum string band. For those interested, Keefe has also put together a Patron Dinner option before the show.
