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.

So great to see The Damned again after all these years. They rocked. The Marquee is a fabulous venue, too.

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.

People need to stop recording on their phones. Holding a big phone up in Xeon of people's faces is ruining the concert. Damn it! But The Damned were amazing.

What can I say? Alice Bag opened! Such a great surprise! Talk about the early LA scene...Castration Squad? The Bags? Classic LA punk. Turns out she was at that first Damned show 40 years ago and within a few weeks of seeing them she formed a band of her own. It was only fitting she open for the band that inspired her 4 decades ago. The Damned performed an especially energetic set. They exhibited a lot more punch than the last time I saw them; of course this time they had a bigger stage to run around on. Captain Sensibles antics never disappoint and Dave Vanian still dresses nattily and croons as smoothly as always. Set list was a neat mix of early and mid-discography songs. There were 2 encores and by the time they left stage for good I think everybody was satisfied. I certainly was.
