On Sunday, November 19, Washington D.C. will be treated to “Perfectioncraft,” a night that celebrates the coming together of The Perfectionists and Fellowcraft for a night fueled by originals and covers as the band members swap instruments and vocal duties for an unforgettable and engaging experience.
Taking place at Pearl Street Warehouse, where “Music is always on,” in The Wharf, it’s a tradition that the bands began together in 2016, took a bit of a break due to the pandemic, but is finally back.
The Perfectionists are an accomplished and experienced lineup comprised of Ginny Hill on lead vocals, Kevin Engle on guitar and vocals, Annie Guske on keys/synth and vocals, Scott Manley on drums, and Rob Lee on bass. The band covers all the songs you love that they love, spanning multiple decades and genres while appealing to music fans of all ages. You may have seen The Perfectionists at Sauf Haus rocking the roof on a Friday or Saturday night, though we imagine catching them outside National’s Park at The Bullpen holds a special kind of energy.
Fellowcraft is a two time Wammie-award winning rock band featuring JR MacDonald on lead vocals and guitar, Brandon Williams on bass. They have an incredibly strong local and international fan base, having shared stages with bands like Phil Anselmo, Static-X, Amon Amarth, and Deep Purple. Joining the lineup is former Fellowcraft drummer Brian Nelson-Palmer, who has found his latest success through his Productivity Gladiator podcast, which “trains and equips project managers to master ‘Life Balance’ and find that elusive ‘good quality of life.’” Brian became a staple of the local music scene through his time with Fellowcraft while also performing double duty by hosting the DC Music Rocks radio show and podcast from the studios of Arlington Independent Media in Northern Virginia.
Word on the street is that this is something of a going away party for Brian, we hope it’s nothing more than a brief stint away!
Tickets to see “Perfectioncraft” on November 19 are available via Pearl Street Warehouse.
Check out Brian on drums with Fellowcraft in this 2018 live video at 9:30 Club of their original song “Stonehearted”. Around the third minute, you’ll see Brandon on Bass start his melodic underpinning that makes Fellowcraft unique, and the song builds to an epic finish from there!

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
