First and foremost The Damned is one of those timeless bands that foreshadow all other bands. Like they're there and there not going no where.
I casually mentioned it to my husband knowing there was no chance in hell of us going. Well surprisingly he seemed immensely interested.
Like he kept pushing that I should buy tickets.
I had doubt because we don't have a babysitter and that pretty much kills us ever going out by ourselves.
So reluctantly I purchased 2 tickets for that evening show.
As the time was nearing I was getting anxious because I knew his mom is wishy washy on keeping her word but at the last minute she agreed to watch our kids.
So we got ourselves ready and took off. Like I mentioned in the title I have not been to a concert in years! Since like 2006...
We got there in time to watch the opening act. Got a couple drinks. Went to the main floor. After an hour or so the band finally came out.
Let's just say it was pretty amazing! Like damn, Dave Vanian is really timeless. And the Captain, pure talent on the guitar!
The crowd was alright for a bunch of older rockers and some young punks trying to mosh pit.
I got stepped on by a big guy getting kicked out by security.
The bartender was a bit of a pompous jerk.
The best part was that we were only a few people away from the front stage. I could clearly see the band play. How many times can you say that with a general admission ticket to see a big band play? Rarely, if ever. But over all the night was great. I can now say I got to see one of my favorite bands live💜. It'll always be one of my favorite memories!
