    FC OCTOBER + NOVEMBER TOUR DATES!

    Friends!

    We're finally coming back West! It's been two years since our last tour to that coast and we're so excited. We haven't played the BILL songs for you yet! We haven't brought you the purple palms tees! We haven't shared our brand new unrecorded work with you!

    BUT WE WILL. OH YES, WE WILL.

    Our upcoming tour dates are below. Please do follow us on Bandsintown to get updates about added shows! Also note the local show this Friday at Little Harpeth Brewing. Should be a banger.

    See you all very soon!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    UPDATED FC JULY + AUGUST TOUR DATES // SOLO PERFORMANCE ON FRET BUZZ

    Hi there!

    FC had a terrific time at all of our June shows! Thanks, everyone! A special highlight was playing for the young people of the Southern Girls Rock Camp last week. They flipped! We had so much fun, we could barely keep it together and play well. We're so grateful that they asked us back to be part of their rad and inclusive program for a second year!

    We have some updates for the upcoming tour! We're now playing Brooklyn Bazaar on July 29th. We're also excited to announce the Nashville show at the end of the run on August 3rd with fellow local heavies, Howling Giant. Save the date, Nash! All are listed below.

    If you'd like to receive notifications about when Friendship Commanders are coming to a city near you, follow them on Bandsintown!

    Thanks to all who came out to my solo electric show at the Groove in Nashville on June 21st! I was moved to have so many comrades in attendance. I'm sure it will happen again!

    Also, I performed a new solo song called “Pocket-Sized Friend” on a new web series by Mike’s Music called Fret Buzz! The show is about songwriting, guitar players, vintage instruments, and coffee. Mike’s Music is a terrific music store with two locations; one in Cincinnati OH and one in Covington KY. The Covington spot has a sound stage and they’re hosting this new series there! I was on the third episode, which airs on August 1st. Subscribe to their YouTube channel here and stay tuned for updates!

    That’s all for now!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    FC TOUR // WRITTEN IN RED // SHOUT, SISTER, SHOUT // PLUS . . . 

    Hey!

    Good things are happening over here! Here's a run-down of what I've been up to, and what I'll be up to in the immediate future. Thanks for stopping by!

    First, the touring season is officially underway for Friendship Commanders! We played a great bunch of shows in April and we head back out in less than two weeks. The dates for the immediate future are listed on the poster below; July and August dates will be announced later this month! You can follow our dates on BandsInTown. Thanks!

    I was honored to perform guest vocals on a track called "Written in Red" by friends in Chicago, The Ableist. I love what they do and what they're about, so I jumped at the opportunity to add my voice to theirs. The track appears on a new compilation on Don't Panic Records called We Don't Work May 1st. The release benefits the greater Chicago area chapter of IWW and features twenty-five killer Chicago punk and hardcore bands. And me. I'm becoming an honorary Chicago person now, I think. I'll take it. 

    Enjoy! Support!

    This coming Sunday, May 5th, I'll be appearing on Shout, Sister, Shout on Nashville's WXNA! I'll be talking with host Lauren Turner about music, activism, and the women I look up to! Please dial in at 1 pm (CST) to listen along!

    Last, I did a VERY big thing in early April. I'm not ready to share it yet, but it went terrifically well. I look forward to talking about it and letting you hear it. In the meantime, here are the involved persons at Sound Emporium in Nashville TN on April 8th, 2019. What a day.

    Thank you!

    NEW FRIENDSHIP COMMANDERS VIDEO + SPRING TOUR DATES

    Friends!
    I have so much to share with you today!

    First, I'm so happy to announce the release of FC's brand new video for "WHAT YOU RAVAGE"! We collaborated with director/editor Matthew Sterling for this project and love what he brought to it. We invite you to check it out over at the Nashville Scene where it premieres today! This song and video are about grief and what we each hide beneath the surface. We hope you like it.

    Second, we have a bunch of tour dates this Spring! We've been dying to get back out on the road and see all of you. Check the dates at the bottom of this post to see if we're coming to your neighborhood! If not, we'll be touring for a lot of this year. We'll do our best to come to you.

    Last, local friends can see us headline the High Watt next Thursday night, April 4th. We can't wait.

    Thank you! We appreciate you all more than you know.


    Rock,

    BA
