The four-piece girl rocker group, All Hands On Jane, shredded the stage at The Northern on Thursday night, just after Morgan Pulsifer’s Country Smokes, and just before Miesha and The Spanks.

Lead guitarist Teri Wagner and drummer Tess Graham met in Calgary five years ago when she was a bass player. Transitioning to guitar, the group recruited keyboard and synth player, Kaitlin Gibson, and stole the rockstar bassist, Tammy Amstutz from another group last year.

With a combined sound of stoner rock and what the group considers ‘sleazy Canadiana’, the group has become known for their unique sound, energy and incredible stage presence.

“We do like to rock out, which is why we’re not at Folk Fest this year,” said Wagner.

“We come from a couple different backgrounds and a couple of different genres, and being able to find a common central ground in this sleazy Canadiana which doesn’t fit anywhere, is pretty cool,” added Amstutz.

A noisy bar of people quickly shifted their attention when All Hands on Jane took the stage, kicking off their show with an explosive instrumental solo.

Their biggest accomplishment so far came last week, when the group opened for The Pack A.D. at Dickens Pub in Calgary.

“That was amazing. We love them. We nerded out a little bit over them and they were very nice to us. We had a super tight set, there was 250 people which was packed, awesome and sweaty,” said Wagner.

The rocker girls were recently accepted into Canadian Music Week, for their new album, Sorry I Set You On Fire, which they released in December.

After Fernie, the group travels to Invermere, Golden, then back to Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge.

“Then, we’re coming home to sleep for a million years,” said Wagner.

All Hands On Jane followed the explosive start by Country Smokes, and beautifully led into the hardcore rock sound which followed from the two-piece rock group, Miesha and The Spanks.

The next upcoming night of music at The Northern, will be Thursday, March 9, when Monster Energy will present the Mountain Magic Tour, hosted by long-time electronic artist, Christian Martin and 90’s Calgarian electro-duo, Smalltown DJs, who will both lead into an exciting performance by legendary D’n’B artist, Justin Martin.
