Toronto Punk Reunion -Mods, B-Girls
Here they are circa 1980... Toronto's B-Girls, backstage at the Whisky a Go Go after their Los Angeles debut.... in the audience... Debbie Harry and Nigel Harrison of Blondie, Rodney Bingenheimer, and a not-yet-in-a-band Jeffrey Lee Pierce. Of course, Stiv was there.
B-Girl Cynthia Ross visited Los Angeles with Stiv a few months prior to the band's tour, and started the B-Girl buzz going. After the Whisky dates, the B-Girls found themselves adding backing vocals on the Blondie track, "The Tide is High," which became a hit single.
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 25, they will be playing at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, as will The Mods.
If I were in Toronto, this would be on my calendar....
