Last night Calum and I headed down to Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT to see aging punk rockers The Damned.

It was a great night, the only downside being how late we got home on a school/work night!

It’s a great venue, nice and small and intimate without being grungy.

There were three support bands which might make you think “oh no, they are going to be awful”, but they were actually rather good, especially the final support band The BellRays who I had never heard of but was rather taken with.

I was very funny having a look around the audience, a combination of old folks like myself reliving their youth and the next generation of music aficionados like Calum.

All found bands were very entertaining, none of them taking themselves too seriously (Captain Sensible and the rest of the Damned excel at this).

A good time all round, now all I need is for my ears to stop ringing…
