The Metz/Viet Cong bill hitting The Basement on Wednesday night is a pretty hot one – both bands are music blogger favorites. But what about this opening band, the one whose name you might not be sure how to pronounce? WE didn’t interview Crosss (you’ll discover it’s sort of like saying “Crosses”) but stumbled upon this interview/performance on YouTube that we thought was a pretty good introduction to the band’s Sabbathy/doomy metal sound.

And if you dig what you hear, you’ll be happy to learn that Crosss will be back on September 15¬†opening for Built to Spill at The Basement.
