Crosses / Color Film @ Music Hall of Williamsburg - 2/13/14
After plowing through 30 minutes, which included songs like "The Eulogy," and "Bitch's Brew," which were played earlier in the week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a few technical glitches sidelined the band for a bit. However, Moreno and Doom made up for it, in a freestyle jam session. "It means a fuckin' lot to us that you came out on this fucked up day," Moreno said to the crowd. Once the technical issues were fixed, a clearly frustrated Lopez, took to his guitar and the band went back to work. Playing for 90-minutes, including the encore, ? ? ? (Crosses) showed what they were made of. [Officially A Yuppie]Crosses (†††), the side project that gives Deftones singer Chino Moreno and Far guitarist Shaun Lopez a chance to dive into gothy synth pop, played a few shows in support of their new self-titled album last week. Two of those were in NYC, Santos last Wednesday (2/12) and Music Hall of Williamsburg the following night (2/13), both sold out. They played a bunch of the album/EPs and covered Q. Lazzarus' one hit wonder "Goodbye Horses." Opening both shows was Color Film, the project which gives Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo (joined by GJ's rhythm section) a similar opportunity to take a break from post-hardcore for synth pop. We caught the MHOW show, which also had Yung Gutted on the bill, and pictures of that show (including one of the setlist) are in this post.
