A Damned Good Band 

When: Fri., Aug. 21 2015
The Damned spearheaded the punk rock movement in the UK, but the group is often criminally forgotten when one thinks of quintessential punk bands. Also known as “the first UK punks on wax,” the band famously played its first show ever opening for the Sex Pistols at London’s 100 Club. That show was later released as a live album. Known for its outrageous on and off stage behavior, the group somehow managed to get kicked off of a tour with the Sex Pistols, an accolade that really speaks for itself. THE DAMNED: Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead, a documentary from director Wes Orshoski (Lemmy), features commentary from artists who were influenced by the band, including members of Blondie, the Clash, Buzzcocks, and more. The film screens at 7 tonight in the Museum’s Foster Theater. Following the screening, Orshoski will participate in a question and answer session with the audience. The event is free with a reservation through the Rock Hall website or at the Rock Hall box office. (Mann)
