Inspired by a real life event, that angel is our heroine Kandi. The Damned is her favorite band. A few years before this show, we went to see the Damned at Slim's. We were watching the opening band, impatiently awaiting the main act. It was very crowded. We were standing near the four steps down to the door. Kandi said she was going to the can. I said OK. The stairs down to the bathroom are long and steep, made of steel.

A moment later, a guy standing near me says "Is that your girlfriend?"

I looked down the short stairway and there she was, splayed out unconscious in the front doorway. I went to help her up and outside. The club staff people came out to help. They called an ambulance, but Kandi seemed to be improving. The paramedics checked her out and pronounced her to be alright. Apparently, the crowd and heat were too much for our angel.

She wanted to go home, so I went to get her coat down the long steel stairway to the coatroom, realizing it could have been a lot worse if she had actually tried to go down to the bathroom. I came back upstairs and passed the stage just as the Damned opened with "New Rose". We totally missed the show.

So naturally, the next time I had a chance to do a Damned poster, I had to memorialize that evening.
