Win A Ticket To See Dead Cross @ The Warsaw On 9/13/2017

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 “Power Of The Riff” Is Coming East In September

As I have mentioned a few times already in this area of PiercingMetal.com, when we learn of a tour or area festival type event that is worthy of your attention we shall always aim to offer you up a little commercial announcement about it so you are in the know. With that being the case please check this one out…..

They call this little bit of Metal Madness “The Power Of The Riff” and if I am reading correctly, this will be the first time that such an event is on the East Coast. Isn’t that awesome? The show will take place across the first weekend in September at the Warsaw in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Since this is also the Labor Day holiday you are all off on Monday and that means there is no problem with your staying out late for a Metal show the night before. Check out who is playing this event:

Sat (Sept. 1): Pentagram, Poison Idea, Negative Approach, Xibalba, Alpha & Omega, Power Trip
Sun (Sept. 2): SUNN 0))), Winter, Repulsion, Unearthly Trance, Salvation, Dead In The Dirt

The bombastic show is being presented by the Brooklyn Vegan and Scenic so please be sure to give some kudos where they are due. Tickets are on sale now and should you be interested in attending but need a little more background on some of the bands I have pasted in some Amazon.com links to help you along.
