Front-woman Miesha Louie grew up in the valley, but since her 2008 self-titled release hit campus and community radio, she and her ‘band’ have been making waves across Canada. Her music, described as ‘ferocious, raucous, and yet, sensitive’ got her a winning spot with Harvard Broadcasting’s X92 Exposure contest, and a chance to work with The Weakerthans/ Rheostatics producer Ian Blurton. The resulting album, “Girls, Like Wolves” spent three months on the national charts. Just as importantly, it got the Spanks gigs from Halifax to Vancouver, sharing stages with bands like Queens of The Stone Age, Nashville Pussy, Hot Hot Heat at NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, CMW, and Breakout West. Miesha’s vocals have also been heard on shows like Shameless, Vampire Diaries, and Being Human.

Miesha and partner drummer Sean Hamilton make music and tour, and make more music, and tour more. They’ve been all over Canada making people jump up and dance. They live it and love it. They’ve been compared to the Runaways, Karen O, Suzy Quatro, and White Stripes. Their energy is contagious. And you’re about to catch it. Pure excitement! If you like to dance, don’t miss this act.
