In addition to regularly leading manic mosh circuses and helping to mete out serious sonic punishment, Fucked Up's Father Damian is a hardcore acrobat. He's a pretty big dude. But once he gets his clothes off ... Watch out.
He will climb walls. He will mount the bar. And he will put on the best damn show of agility, strength, and stamina to ever take place in your favorite scuzzy punk club.
What we said:
When it started, Father Damian (AKA Pink Eyes, Mr. Damian, Damian Abraham) was still wearing a shirt. There was a crooked baseball cap and jeans, too. But after five minutes of brutal noise ("Two Snakes" and "David Comes to Life"), Damian got hot and sweaty and started to strip. I guess he couldn't help himself. First, he threw away the hat. Next, he ripped off the tee. Last, he wiggled his ass out of the jeans.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
