Miesha & The Spanks: Dig Me Out

Singer/guitarist Miesha Louie and drummer Sean Hamilton are Miesha & The Spanks, a fuzz-heavy garage/alt-rock duo. Their latest single Dig Me Out tackles the horrific discovery of 215 child remains at the Kamloops Residential School in May 2021. They were the victims of a long-running program destined to "kill the Indian in the child" run by the Catholic Church and the Canadian government.

Louie herself is a mixed-Secw├ępemc, living in a Treaty 7 Territory and her righteous anger is almost palpable. She does not take any shit from anybody. With this single she gives a voice to all those kids, who forcefully silenced, and paid the highest prize in an absurd and racist scheme.

Live dates:
  • 05/01 Liverpool, UK @ Liverpool Sound City
  • 07/20 Nelson, BC @ The Royal
  • 07/21 Vancouver, BC @ The Lido
  • 07/24 Squamish, BC @ Squamish Constellation Festival 2022
