30 Years Today


30 YEARS ago TODAY, Mecca Normal played its first show.

On July 27, 1984, long after Vancouver’s “punk” scene was over, Mecca Normal opened for D.O.A. at the Smilin’ Buddha and then this strange account of the show appeared in the weekly music paper saying that D.O.A. had played “mecca normal” songs that night. A correction was printed the following week.

And that was just the beginning of the 30 years of weirdness and intensity that continues to this day.

Turns out that working with David Lester is the best decision I ever made.
