The Dillinger Escape Plan played the first of three long-awaited farewell shows at NYC's Terminal 5 last night, December 27th. Joining the freakcore stalwarts for opening night was former guitarist Brian Benoit, as well as mutual fan and musical instigator Mike Patton. In addition to tearing through his and Dillinger's 2002 collaborative EP, Irony Is a Dead Scene, cover-to-cover, the revered vocalist led the band in a rousing cover of Faith No More's "Malpractice," a highlight off 1992's seminal Angel Dust LP that they've taken on together in the past. Check out HQ fan footage of the explosive onstage merger above and below.
