Band Spotlight: MK (Our Bassist) in PA

SONGS of SUMMER 2020: WIPEOUT   Ah summer, the sound of sandy beaches, tasty peaches, children laughing making sand castles, sitting in summer traffic hassles, and the air thick with smells of salty sea air, Coppertone #2 tanning oil and shiny blonde hair, experienced through an overused wet hospital mask and hazmat suit.   Summer… Read more »

Band Spotlight: Christina at Home!

Christina here, coming at you from the too familiar view of my living room. What an insane past few months it has been! I sure miss playing for you all. I miss the feeling of being in the wings before the start of a show and putting on my game face as soon as I… Read more »

Hello, Kentucky!

Post-show band pic.

On Friday, November 3, the Femmes and I headed to Kentucky for the first time. This show was particularly special for me because we were close to my hometown of Evansville. Just shy of a 3-hour drive from southern Indiana, my mom made the drive to see her first FOR show. It had been a… Read more »

Hiya, Toledo!

See you next time!

Recently, the crew and I packed up and headed out for Toledo, Ohio, for a performance at the beautiful Hollywood Casino.

A Blast From My Past–Bemus Point Performance

By sea, I mean lake. It's a large lake.

I grew up in a small historic village called Lewiston, NY. About 90 minutes south towards the Pennsylvania border, my aunt and uncle have a cottage on Lake Chautauqua, and I spent many of my summer vacations there jet skiing, fishing, boating, having bonfires, and watching the thunderstorms from the screened-in porch. Somehow or another,… Read more »

Welcome to our new website!

Welcome to our first FEMMES OF ROCK blog! We’re extremely excited about our new website and we hope you are, too. The popularity of the group is (happily) growing at a rate we never expected so we’re a little behind with many responsibilities. Consistent updates to the website, blog, photos, videos, tour dates and more will be our top priority.

First off, we want to thank everyone who has been coming to our shows in the US and Canada. It’s been an amazing year or so since the band was officially solidified. We’re looking forward to this upcoming US summer tour, which begins mid-July.
