The Belly Up crowd usually doesn’t start to really fill in the space until the headliners are getting ready to go on. Not so on this night, as San Diego’s own garage/punk/surf-rockers, the Creepy Creeps, brought their demented brand of “dance numbers” to the Solana Beach venue as the warm up act for The Damned (look right below this post for a review of the Damned set). And warm up the crowd they did – exhorting the crowd to dance and cut loose while they played with their usual reckless abandon. Every time I see this band play they have a full dance floor in front of them and it doesn’t matter if they are the headliners or the 1st act on a 4 band bill – they bring everything they’ve got.
