Dead Cross' first North American tour began on August 10th and finally made its way to New York City for two dates in mid-September.
The California band features Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer) and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle) who previously played together in Fantômas with Buzz Osbourne and Trevor Dunn. Their second New York show took place at Warsaw in Brooklyn on Wednesday, September 13th and the venue's slogan is "where pierogies meet punk."
Despite my attendance at many shows at this location over the years, I've never witnessed a band involve pierogies in their set...until Dead Cross. Needing to kill time during their set, a plate of pierogies and kielbasa were brought to the stage so that Patton and Lombardo could feed audience members.
Dead Cross were supported by Secret Chiefs 3, the long running band from Trey Spruance (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle) who were selected to play the majority of the shows on the headliner's initial tour.
