Dead Cross @ Gramercy Theatre

Dead Cross is a new band that finds Mike Patton and Dave Lombardo joining forces and you know you want to be at their debut NYC appearance.

The Details: I don’t usually want to do two contests in a row and let alone for events that are in direct competition with each other but when the Powers That Be offer you some true coolness you learn to roll with the waves. Oddly enough, I had only first heard the name “DEAD CROSS” very recently and didn’t actually look into it at all. I assumed it was a brand new Black Metal band that I would get around to seeing on a package sometime soon. Imagine my surprise when I learned it was not only a new effort by the great Mike Patton of Faith No More but also a group that featured the drumming might of Dave Lombardo (that dude who was formerly in Slayer). The band will be playing two shows in our region with one at the now famous Gramercy Theatre and also the following day at The Warsaw which is the venue that this contest is for. Thought we’ve never been there before to cover a show this will effectively be our very first giveaway at this venue. It’s pretty exciting to say the least and thanks to the fine folks in the Marketing division, we are going to put a couple of lucky fans into the show on the house. That lets you have more money for merchandise which is never a bad thing. Check out the details on how to participate.

When and Where: Wednesday, September 13th @ The Warsaw (Brooklyn, NYC)

To Participate: I’ve decided to keep this an easy one and by saying that I mean I will be sticking to my usual formula of you readers giving me “3” things that you like most about the band if you have heard them already and if you are a newbie just give me “3” things that you are most interested in about their performance. Perhaps there are albums that “spoke” to you or concert appearances that sent you to the music shop to snag some of the band members earlier works. Just give me three solid answers and how important it is to be at this show. I know I make you work but I work here too so whining will not win out at all LOL. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well on how our freebies work. Writing “because they slay dude” is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Kindly review some guidelines before entering your submission. We don’t have a lot of tickets for this one. Also there is no need to remind me that this is a brand new band. I am well aware of that so the interested should line out their hopes and interests in this project in some fashion.

The Original Misfits Reunion Decimates The Denver Riot Fest

Logo - The Misfits

And they said it would never happen but last night in Denver, Colorado at a calm little function they call the “Riot Fest” – a bit of music history took place. It was an event that pretty much everyone had given up hope on ever occurring but when the news was announced a few months ago a nervous countdown happened among the fans while thousands scrambled for tickets to see this one act only. I am speaking of none other than the mighty and macabre Misfits whose original members Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein put the differences aside and offered up a reunion performance that will surely go down in history. They were joined by Acey Slade on second guitar and the inimitable Dave Lombardo (formerly of Slayer) on the drums and below the poster you will find a few of the audience recorded clips of the evenings happening.

I didn’t snag too many clips for you and instead will leave the rest up to your own discovery. I did however locate a few of my favorites and am sharing them below. As I watched them I was slavering at the idea of actually being at this event. At least with these we are all flies on the wall and that is better than nothing. Many thanks to those fans who recorded them without too much bopping around. Your dedication to fellow fans is commendable.
