The Girly Show


Despite trips to the hospital, P.A.'s blowing, and various other issues trying to interfere, The Girly Show was a success!





Thanks everyone who came out to check it out... and a special thanks to Natacha Homerodean and The Ladies of Capital City Burlesque for sharing the stage with us, and kicking ass!

THE GIRLY SHOW!


THE GIRLY SHOW!
Come on down to The Artery to be wowed by these beauties of Edmonton:

THE FORTRELLES!
Soul stirring soul revival! Fresh treatments of 1960's girl group classics that you know and love!

CAPITAL CITY BURLESQUE!
http://capitalcityburlesque.com/
Alberta's premiere burlesque troupe elegantly straddles a fine line between classic burlesque and humorous modernist parody. From Rockette inspired kick-lines to a trio of thrusting Santas, CCB does it all with aplomb!

NATACHA HOMERODEAN!
http://natachahomerodean2.bandcamp.com/
A bombshell of lethal proportion, this bilingual sweetheart will steal your heart
 (in both English and French)!

$15 at the door
DOORS OPEN AT 9PM

DOWN WITH LOVE at the Wunderbar Feb 2013


The Fortrelles danced and sang the night away to a sold out (and then some) Wunderbar! Thank you everyone who came down, and thank you to the Wunderbar for having us!

" 'Down with Love' was the theme for a valentine-laden gig at Wunderbar starring up-and-coming daughters of Riverdale, Emily Rault, left, and Cayley Thomas, centre - two-thirds of the garage-style Sixties girl group, The Fortrelles. Together with Andrea Rankin, right, they wowed a packed standing-room-only audience just off Whyte Avenue until the wee hours. And as an extra treat, Em's brother Michael Rault took a turn as the night's celebrity guest star!" - The Riverdalian
