Fri, 24 May 2019 00:21:46 +0000 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/around-the-way-girl-plays-60-shows-this-summer_1338 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/around-the-way-girl-plays-60-shows-this-summer_1338 Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a lovely spring. Man, I'll tell ya: every year around March, I freak out that I'm not going to have enough work over the summer (this year especially!). So, I start emailing everyone on my contact list, saying yes to every gig that comes my way. And, at some point, I look at my calendar and realize, "Shit, I've overbooked myself again!"

Between now and September 15, I'm gonna play OVER 60 GIGS!!! I'm really not sure how I'm going to do it, but I'm sure I'll have fun. A lot of them are with The Scotch Bonnets, as we are about to embark on a tour to Western Canada for the Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival. Other highlights include:

- two sets with two different bands (Strykers Posse: Sisdren in Power and The Players Band) at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, opening for Toots & the Maytals!!!

- three gigs on the water at Nick's Fish House with The Players Band (always one of my favorite summer gigs)!

- nine gigs with Olivia & the Mates at The Bullpen outside Nationals Stadium!

- EIGHTEEN farmers market gigs at various markets in DC, as well as some new markets in Northern Virginia!

- a rare solo acoustic gig at the Baltimore Museum of Industry

There are so many chances to see me play music this summer, so check the shows page and come on out!


So many shows my head's gonna explode!!! Mon, 11 Jun 2018 20:04:33 +0000 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/so-many-shows-my-heads-gonna-explode_1332 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/so-many-shows-my-heads-gonna-explode_1332 Happy spring, everybody!!! Man, instead of playing with chickens, reading, riding bikes, and gardening, I've just been gigging my face off! And it looks like this trend will continue into the summer. I'm not complaining; these are good problems to have. It just means, as per usual, I won't get to spend as much with friends as I'd like. So, do me a favor, come see me at one of the many, many gigs I've got listed on my shows page. I'll be so psyched that I'll give you a great, big hug. Music and hugs from Hatchet, what more could you want this summer? Cetainly not sun (note to the weather gods: NO MORE RAIN!!!)....
