Music satire website The Hard Times presented a performance by hardcore punk and metal supergroup Dead Cross this past Wednesday, August 23rd at The UC Theater in Berkeley. Featuring an all-star roster of Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, and Mike Crain, Dead Cross played a tight and aggressive set of tracks off of their self-titled debut, including a cover of the Bauhaus classic ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’.
Local punk rock icon Jello Biafra also made an appearance at the show, leading the band through an updated version of a Dead Kennedys classic, in the form of ‘Nazi Trumps Fuck Off’. Mike Patton also tenaciously held onto a fan’s balls for about half a song, which added to the spectacle. Trey Spruance’s project Secret Chiefs 3 opened the night.
