Shinyribs: Shinyribs is soul. There’s no other word for it, and there’s no other experience like the one you’ll get from a Shinyribs show. The afterthought of frontman Kevin Russell’s former project, The Gourds, Shinyribs has proven to be a vital unit of creativity and charisma in the music scene with a bit of their own cult following. The passion and inhibition of Russell’s performance combined with his incomparable voice makes Shinyribs one MF15 show you simply can’t miss, and will give you a sense of freedom and appreciation you won’t forget.

His beautiful and relatable songwriting and unmistakable voice has built a huge following for LaRue and has proven to be a fan favorite year after year.
