The Damnwells play rock and power pop with well crafted songs and great vocals. They have a wonderful new album just out, titled, simply enough, The Damnwells. The band has a history worthy of, well, a band. They put out a couple of records, got trapped in record company stupidity and two of the original members left the band. Two other members, including songwriter and front man Alex Dezen, soldiered on releasing two albums over the past few years. But now the original line up of The Damnwells is back together. Tonight is New York’s turn to see The Damnwells once again. This performance, at Irving Plaza, is the release show for the new CD, and Julian Velard and Ari Hest will open.
