This was my first time seeing The Damned. I didn't know their music. I enjoyed the show and I would see them again.
The damned were great! I saw the casualties in the crowd. It was weird seeing a punk band in a place that had seats. The food was overpriced and the seats seemed to restrict movement so it was pretty tame. It’s best to see them at a festival or a bar venue.
It was an incredible night, one I will never forget, the whole band are very talented and insanely nice people!! Tha damned are better than the sex pistols ever were 🤟🤟

Unfrocking believable- seeing the Damned in such close intimate setting phenomenal -it reminded me when they played Fenders Ballroom, Long Beach Ca back in the eighties, but only better....

They never disappoint. Dave is the greatest punk singer, and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees. It was also cool to see Ian MacKaye there watching on the side.

Dave Vanian is completely underrated as one of the greatest frontmen and vocalists in Rock and Roll. The Damned plowed through over 20 songs; most from their early Punk albums with a splash of 80s pop and soundtrack hits and some of their well known satirical covers. Captain Sensible with a broken rib from a stage fall a few weeks ago; one upped Axl and Grohl by playing seated on a crusty toilet throne with the tank converted to a beer cooler. At 64, he still played with rigor and abandon, occasionally riffing ten seconds of everything from Pearl Jam to Billy Joel during intros. He had one false start, replaying New Rose when they were playing neat neat neat. No clue how he's doing back to back shows without rest. Oxymoron was the court jester - hippy hype man - cheering the crowd to sing along and dance. These guys have been together almost twenty years, 40 for Vanian and Sensible, and tonight wasn't even close to a punk rock show; or a greatest hits review. It was five individuals putting together a solid musical performance of Rock and Roll and radio standards. Two three song encores - and they could have gone all night. Gosh have they evolved.
