Nikki Glaspie guest sets at Bear Creek Music Festival 2013: Chali 2na, Jennifer Hartswick Band, The Nth Power and more!

Chali 2na House of Vibe Nikki Glaspie

It seemed like Nikki Glaspie was playing drums with everyone at Bear Creek in 2013. She played no less than 8 full sets, including 4 full sets on Sunday. Here she is with Chali 2na’s House of Vibe Band, 2 sets with the Jennifer Hartswick Band and a late night set with The Nth Power.

She also played with Dumpstaphunk, The Bear Creek Allstars (Dumpstajam) and subbed for Adam Deitch in Lettuce. Those 3 sets can be founds here. She also held it down with Roosevelt Collier & Nigel Hall’s Gospel Surprise, but I’m holding on to those videos until I find an audio source (I accidentally left my mic turned off so I have no sound for that set). Enjoy the last of my Bear Creek 2013 videos:
