The Damned

Ever wonder what happened to the old punk rockers, the ones who didn't die or sell out? In the case of The Damned, one of the greatest punk bands that ever was, they're still here, still plugging away 35 years after the group's birth in Croydon, England. Their first record, 1977's "Damned Damned Damned," is a classic of the form. Their fourth, 1980's "The Black Album," helped usher in the goth movement. Still, The Damned was never as acclaimed as compatriots like the Sex Pistols, the Clash and the Jam. There were issues with record labels and one another that got in the way. 8 p.m. Tuesday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St.; $25 (18+); 773-549-4140 or etix.comRead the full interview with The Damned
