All girl group to rock the Northern

A rocking all-girl group will be getting the Northern dancing on Tuesday night.

Miss Quincy and The Showdown, an all-girl rock n' roll band, will be playing in Fernie at The Northern on Tuesday following bingo night

The group is known for their raunchy roots and blues and straight up rock n' roll music, featuring electric guitar, upright bass, and drums.

Channeling The Runaways, The Black Keys, and Big Mama Thornton, Miss Quincy doesn't fit the classic girl singer/songwriter mold and The Showdown isn't your average all-girl band. You won’t find them singing pretty pages out of their diaries, instead you’ll find them starting a party everywhere they play.

Miss Quincy and The Showdown currently call the road their home. To promote the release of Miss Quincy's second album, Like The Devil Does, the band hit the highway hard in 2012 for an eight month world tour that included the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, and of course Canada. They spent the winter in California and Mexico writing a new album and will be bringing the brand new songs to Fernie before heading across the Atlantic for their fourth European tour.
