Interview with . . . The Damed

The Damed

It’s finally October! What better time to have an interview with a band who are into punk rock and all things witchy as much as I am? The stars have aligned just in time to have Heather Hellskills and Watts Yoshizawa of The Damed back for an interview.

Everyone welcome The Damed to the blog!

Where was your first show as a fan? As a performer?

Have you ever been to Salem, Massachusetts?

Heather H: Yes, once! It was very witchy.

Watts: No.

Is there a cause that you are more passionate about than any others?

Heather H: I am passionate about a lot of causes, but I am very environmentally conscious and am always trying to reduce my carbon footprint and constantly urging others to do so as well.

Watts: Education. Sharing knowledge is the best way to empower one another.

How many times a day does someone confuse you with The Damned?

Heather H: Haha. We get tagged on Instagram semi-often. Sometimes we get asked if we are a Damned cover band.

Watts: Often. It never fails.

What is the best thing about being a Riot Grrrl band? Also, how many r’s are in grrrrl?

Heather H: As many as you want!!!

Watts: Being able to express ourselves! There are 3 r’s in grrrl.

Watts: It’s in the works.

What do you want people to know about The Damed?

Heather H: We are very passionate and don’t hold back (musically or lyrically). We don’t fit into any 1 mold, genre wise.

Watts: We are a force to be reckoned with. Back us up or move aside!

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
