As part of their first North American tour, Dead Cross, featuring Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Misfits), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox), Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer) and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk), made their NYC debut earlier this month, taking over Manhattan’s Gramercy Theatre and Brooklyn’s Warsaw.
We caught the September 12th show at Gramercy, where Lombardo, Patton and Co. delivered an unreal performance, hectically playing their debut LP in full, including new numbers like “Seizure and Desist,” “Shillelagh,” “Divine Filth,” “Gag Reflex” and more. As part of their encore, the band teased covers from Slayer and Faith No More, before ending with a cover of Dead Kennedys‘ “Nazi Punks Fuck Off.”
Secret Chiefs 3 (who return to BK later this month) opened the evening, decked out in their trademark hoods and engaging the crowd with their interesting form of avant-guard rock.
