If you still don’t have New Year’s Eve plans, The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 is the place to go. As of 8:30am, they still have tickets for both the 7:15pm and 10pm shows.
The Damnwells play rock and power pop with well crafted songs and great vocals. They have a wonderful new album released earlier this year, titled, simply enough, The Damnwells. It was one of the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Albums of 2015, and one song from it, Lost, was the Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Song of 2015.
The Damnwells have 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. The original line up of The Damnwells then got back together. And as things happened, one of those member is not able to tour right now, and for tonight’s show, he’s being replaced by a familiar face: Whynot Jansvelt, who was the bassist in the now dissolved band Harper Blynn. Opening tonight’s shows will be Rockwood regular Julian Velard.
