PUNK ROCK!! PIE!! BBQ!! BEER!! TWO HELLOS and a GOODBYE!!
It sure feels like it’s been an eternity since we last talked, right? Well… it has been an insanely long winter, but it's finally over. The spring sun has broken out over the city, and we’ve been awash in the familiar sights and smells of the District.
Were kicking off the spring with two shows! We’d love to see you at one, or both. First on the 23rd at the all new, all awesome, Pie Shop! We’ve planned a rousing night of raucous rock n’ roll to compliment some of our favorite punk bands! We owe a huge debt of gratitude to DC Spore Productions, the Split Seconds, Chill Parents, Bluewreck and Dangerously Delicious Pies!
And…not to bury the lead, it’s Brian’s last official gig with Fellowcraft, but more about that later.
If that wasn’t enough to get you riled up - we're back at Hill Country Live again! This time with a brand new four person lineup, (again, more about that later) and with some serious, hard hitting support as we share the BBQ, beer and pork with Bad Krohma, one of DC’s newest, hardest hitting rock bands.
So wait… what’s up with Brian, and this NEW LINEUP?
We're adding two new members to Fellowcraft, and saying goodbye to one.
First off, we say thank you and goodbye to our co-founder, our drummer, and our hype man, Brian Nelson-Palmer, as he steps off to his next big challenge. Brian's been with us from day zero - from the first jam in the studio apartment all the way to the hallowed 9:30 Club! He's headed off to chair the Wammie's, and teach his Productivity Gladiator training across the US.
Brian, we salute you! Fair winds and following seas, my friend.
Good luck, BNP!
You’ll be missed!
So, who are these fresh faces, anyway?
Pablo Anton, of Black Dog Prowl, and formerly of Hundredth Nomad, is joining us as our 4th member on lead guitar! Zach Martin, formerly of Whiskey Pull, and Hundredth Nomad, will be “sitting” in as the new drummer! Fellowcraft is officially a four piece now. I guess we need to change that whole “Grunge-Blues Trio” thing.
Fun fact: you might remember way back in the spring of 2016 we hosted Hundredth Nomad at the Rock n’ Roll Hotel, when they released their EP “Halfway to Nowhere”. We’re happy to have Pablo and Zach as fully fledged, knighted members of Fellowcraft. Welcome to the machine.
Join us this week at Pie Shop, or in a couple weeks at Hill Country. Come say goodbye to Brian before we throw him a farewell show that’s deserving of what he brought to this band. Come see this new lineup play the blues like you can only imagine!
We four, we happy four, we band of brothers
