Two powerful rock and roll bands are coming to the Rockwater this Saturday night.

Miesha and the Spanks joins All Hands on Jane during their upcoming tour through BC and Alberta, with a stop in Golden over the weekend. The two bands will give Golden an energetic, upbeat, dance-your-face off rock and roll night.

“It’s going to be a really fun Saturday night,” Miesha Louie said. “Especially these two bands. I think we’re a really good party.”

Miesha and the Spanks and All Hands on Jane hail from Calgary, and have played a few shows together already. Their stop in Golden brings a close to their first weekend tour, giving them a break in between before hitting the road together again for another weekend of travelling and shows.

“It’s the last show of that weekend tour,” Louie explained. “It’s kind of fun to tour like that. We get a little break at home to recoop, then we go back out on the road.”

The first leg of their tour, which brings them to Fernie, Invermere, and Golden, is a lot like coming home for Louie, who is originally from Invermere. The first time she and the Spanks came to Golden was to play during the winter Golden Sound Fest, which isn’t taking place anymore.

“I’m pumped. It’s always fun coming out there,” she said. “I think we’ve done every winter [Sound Fest] for a while now so this will be fun to get out there. It’s kind of become a bit of a second home to us because we go out there so much.”

Louie describes All Hands on Jane as “all girl psychadellic grunge rock kind of stuff,” that will be really fun. Miesha and the Spanks have been described as hard and melodic rock.

The two bands will be at the Rockwater this Saturday, March 4.
