Summer 2003 saw the truly excellent Crusxshadows play several gigs around the UK. The last of these was in Leeds, at the monthly Black Veil event which runs under the experienced eye of DJ De'Ath, famed throughout the eastern European Goth scene. Support came from York's Screaming Banshee Aircrew, and the result, sold out weeks in advance and with a capacity crowd crammed into the tiny upstairs venue, was definetly one of the high points of the year for the Northen Goth scene.

Despite all the jokey comments from Mr Ed beforehand about this being an opportunity for the band to really screw up in spectacular style, they played a very good set to an appreciative audience, indeed much later on, when the Cruxshadows reached their spectacular encore, it was notable that several of the people Rouge pulled up on stage were draped in SBA "Titanic Verses" t-shirts! The Banshee merchandise entirely sold out during the gig, which is always a good sign!

Thanks to Trish, Roger, De'Ath and all at Gog Promotions for what has to have been one of the Leeds scene's best-ever gigs!
