Calgary based guitar and drums Miesha and the Spanks and the Highkicks return to Lethbridge, June 1 to prove once again, that duos do it better — this time at the Top Hat.
They will be joined by local duo Cope.
“This time I think we’re each doing a set, though at the end we might be on stage together,” said Miesha Louie, who always enjoys playing with the High Kicks aka the Dudes’ Dan Vacon on bass and drummer Matt Doherty.
“We play with them a lot. They’re our buddies,” said the lead singer/ guitarist of Miesha and the Spanks, noting they last time they played together was in Golden, where they each did a set.
“I’m pumped to play with them again. It’s always fun to play with your friends,” she said.
She plays as much as possible as does Sean Hamilton who joined the Spanks last year on drums.
“Our old drummer moved to Vancouver. But Miesha and the Spanks has pretty much always been my project, where I play with whoever is available,” she said, noting she and her other drummers have always played in multiple projects.
One project Louie is excited about is a long distance collaboration with Daniel Farrant, who currently plays drums fro iconic British pop punk band the Buzzcocks.
“Sean plays in a lot of other projects. We both play a lot. I love touring and Sean feels the same way,” she said adding Hamilton was filling in for other drummers and officially joined Miesha and the Spanks in November.
