The Damned at The Five Point Amphitheater

words + photos by Joe Cortez

English punk rock legends The Damned crashed the otherwise headbanger’s ball at the recently-christened Five Point Amphitheater in Irvine on Saturday night, November 3, opening for Danzig as part of his annual Halloween Hell Bash. Sandwiched in-between hard-hitting metal acts such as Venom, Inc., Power Trip, The Meteors and Mutoid Man, The Damned unleashed one of their more raucous and fiery sets featuring long time favorites and new tracks off the band’s recently released eleventh studio album, “Evil Spirits” (available now via the band’s official site).
