The Damned / TSOL / The Briefs @ Irving Plaza 10/31/2014
From their name down, The Damned have been perfectly suited for Halloween shows for over 30 years, something they've done in NYC a few times, including this year. Friday's show (10/31) had Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible and the rest of the band tearing through some of their best-loved songs. It was a scary-good bill all around, with opening sets from LA punk vets TSOL (who they're on tour with and also well suited for Halloween) and Seattle pranksters The Briefs. Pictures from the whole night, plus some Halloween costume shots from around Irving Plaza (and Union Square) are in this post. After the show, Dave Vanian DJed the afterparty at The Hills (aka Don Hill's).
Before Halloween, Captain Sensible played Bowery Electric and after the Damned and TSOL hit Asbury Park. More pics from Irving Plaza below...
