Normal History Vol. 420: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 33-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

On International Women’s Day, I edited, uploaded and shared a snippet of a new song on Facebook. The key phrase in the middle of the song is, “Feminism was not a phase or a failed experiment. We are here!”

Mecca Normal performed “I Am Here” at the three shows we opened for the Julie Ruin in October, 2017.
