Alex Battles performs at Freddy’s in Brooklyn at 4pm on the third Sunday of each month. Freddy’s is located at 627 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, New York. During his set, Alex┬áplays the house piano and his guitar.

Battles performs the Johnny Cash Birthday Bash each year at littlefield on the last weekend in February. Previously, the show was held at Southpaw and Bell House. This show has been an annual performance for Battles since 2005. Tickets are often scarce.

Probably his favorite achievement was starting The CasHank Hootenanny Jamboree, which happens the first Thursday of every month at Freddy’s Bar. The CasHank is for other people who wanted to be able to belt out “Your Cheatin’ Heart” in a bar. In 2011, Battles handed the reins of the CasHank over to Gary Keenan of the American String Conspiracy.
