English punk rock band, The Damned will be performing at El Rey Theatre on Sunday, May 26. Formed during the punk era of the 1970s, they were the first English punk band to release singles, along with an album that landed on the UK charts and led them to tour the US. Presently the band’s current members, joined by original member Dave Vanian, display what The Damned are all about: Rock ‘n’ Roll. Catch the band to hear classic songs such as “New Rose”, “Neat Neat Neat”, and “Grimly Fiendish”, as well as Dave Vanian’s notorious gothic style resembling that of a vampire. Supporting the band will be 45 Grave.
