The Damn Times smell of the essence of Austin's punk rock scene, emitting a sound that is as tight as it is raw. With anthems like "Don't Like People" fueling their live shows, the band attacks every note with intensity, grit, and spit. Formed in 2000, The Damn Times have played about every venue in Austin and have made a few treks up and down the West Coast. RECENTLY THE DAMN TIMES HAVE RELEASED A 45RPM SINGLE ON SPAINS LEGENDARY MUNSTER RECORDS
Their punk prowess bleeds into other acts, as well. Drummer Coby Cardosa can be seen on organ with The Crack Pipes. Bassist Jeff Linton spent some time lending his low-end to both Sons of Hercules and The Stepbrothers. Chad Nichols when not ripping leads, fronts The Transgressors and plays acoustic guitar with T Tex Edwards and the Texwardians. Ryan Anderson also plays bass and continues to record bands in his studio, Active Sound Recording.
Since the bands formation they've earned opening spots for such great acts as guadalupe plata (spain), and you will know us by the trail of dead, the Flesh Tones, Deadbolt, Fireballs of freedom, Gaza Strippers, sons of HERCULES, lords of altamont, young heart attack and many others along the way.
