I WANT TO KNOW WHY MY CROSS PROCESSED PHOTOS ARE TURNING OUT SO DARK! I KNOW THAT WHEN I USE ALOT OF LIGHT, THEY COME OIUT BEAUTIFULLY. MY PROBLEM IS, I LIKE TO TAKE THEM WITH LIVE BANDS, EXTREME LOW LIGHT SITUATIONS. BUT MY OTHER PROBLEM IS... I LIKR MY PHOTOS ULTRA CONTRASTY! WHAT DO I DO????????

  I don't do cross-processing, so my answer is just a WAG: reciprocity error. In bright light your exposure is fine, but in low light (I assume your shooting with the camera meter's suggested shutter/aperture setting) the images come out dark with low contrast ==> I'd try giving +1 or +2 stops exposure compensation in those low light situations and see if that works better.
