Mecca Normal, Mourning Sickness and Bryan James poster

Description

Mecca Normal, Mourning Sickness and Bryan James show at the Rivoli. This was a partial reunion of the Black Wedge tour lineup from the previous year.

The Black Wedge tour was an anti-authoritarian response to Britain's earlier Red Wedge, and began on the West Coast in 1986 before continuing across Canada in 1987. The performers included Vancouver's Mecca Normal, San Francisco's Peter Plate, Montreal's Rhythm Activism and Toronto artists Bryan James and Mourning Sickness.
