Fellowcraft Harnesses The Power and Beauty of “The Coyote and the Desert Rose”

The Alchemist

On Tuesday, Washington DC area Prog-Rock band Fellowcraft released a single from their forthcoming 2021 studio album This Is Where You’ll Find Me. “Coyote and the Desert Rose” is a great indication of things to come following the bands 2019 Washington Area Music Award for Best Rock Song, “Hold The Line,” and their nomination for Best Rock Band in 2020.

The band has previously shared the stage with bands like Static-X and Amon Amarth; evidence of exactly how heavy the band can be, especially in a live setting. “Coyote and the Desert Rose” specifically brought to mind bands like 8Stops7 and Evans Blue, which might reflect some Fellowcraft influences from Alternative and Post-Grunge artists.

This Is Where You’ll Find Me is slated for release in February of next year, and was recorded at Ivakota Studio in Washington DC alongside Tonio Ruiz; marking the band’s second collaboration with the Mexican rock producer.

See Fellowcraft’s live performance from DC9 in front of a live, masked, socially distant audience from the comfort of your living room on Tuesday, October 27. Details and tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Betty Who, headliner of Kinetic Presents Pride Month event

Zach Renovátes, Kinetic Presents: In the Name of Love For All

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.

Fortunately, she was both available and interested.

“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
