2016 SkirtsAfire herArts Festival Artist Profile: The Secretaries

The 4th annual SkirtsAfire herArts Festival is gearing up for another fantastic weekend of A-Line events, March 10-13, 2016 in the heart of Alberta Avenue (118 Ave). SkirtsAfire features the work of women in theatre, music, dance, visual art, comedy and spoken word. Artists and audience come together to share in these powerful, moving, insightful and entertaining performances, exhibitions and workshops.

The Secretaries

The Secretaries are an Edmonton based rock n’ roll band featuring the musical brilliance of Amy van Keeken (guitar, vocals), Colleen Brown (bass, vocals), Natasha Fryzuk (drum, vocals) Darren Radbourne (coronet, vocals), Greg Hutchinson (trumpet, vocals), and Miss Mannered (keys, percussion, vocals).

The Secretaries combine dreamy, vocal harmonies with dark, indie sensibilities. Disco and discord find a seamless, spectral partnership in the heart of this band – a sound brightened by intermittent horns and atmospheric synth. Maybe you’ll cry, but probably you’ll dance.

“The Secretaries are equal parts crunchy, sexy and playful. If you underestimate these kittens, they’ll knock you off your feet.” – Kathleen Bell, See Magazine

Catch The Secretaries in the cabaret space of the Alberta Avenue Community League (9210 118 Ave), Friday March 11 at 9:45pm right after The Dirrty Show!
