@ Friar Tucks, Pomona, CA. Jan 5th 2011

DREADVERSARY is Skippy Spiral on vocals/keyboards, Barry Richardson on guitar, Chris Stout on drums and Brent Armstrong on Bass. They play metal infused circus punk that would certainly appeal to fans of the Birthday Party, Gogol Bordello, The Swans, etc. I had a chance to catch their show at Friar Tucks in Pomona where they played Catatonic Cathedral, Crawling Chaos, High Tide, Clackhead, Defibrillate, Masochistic Mannequin, This Frustration, Sisyphus, Unknown Soldier, Delusion and At Stake. They put on a fun show complete with antics, bits, schticks, a parasol, and excellent keyboard driven metal/dark synth. Definitely recommend checking these cats out live (upcoming shows can be checked here: http://dreadversary.weebly.com/ ) and keeping an eye out for a drop date on their self titled debut recording.
