On Wednesday, January 30th, Titus Andronicus will venture away from guitarist Adam Reich’s Shea Stadium over to the lovely Brooklyn Bowl right off the Bedford Ave L train stop. The concert, scheduled only days ago, would seem to serve as a warm-up gig for an as yet to be announced 2013 tour with Titus Andronicus set to promote Local Business all throughout Europe this summer. Support will be provided by NJ punk rockers The Everymen and Pop Zeus.
Of Titus Andronicus’ latest full length effort, Chris Rotolo had this to say in our Top 50 Albums of 2012 feature:
“Glen Rock, NJ’s champions of independent art used its third full-length release as a banner to celebrate independent business…but that manta of support was only record sleeve deep as the basement quaking Punks kept their aptitude for extended musical metaphors in the bag for Local Business, trading out the 14-minute Cicil War ship battle epic for more Classic-Rock influenced cuts infused with Pop hooks. However, if you’re one that can’t accept a Titus Andronicus record with an overarching theme, it appears Patrick Stickles and company had a goal of elegantly disheveled accessibility in mind. Mission accomplished.”
Tickets are still available as of this writing and only $12, so don’t miss an opportunity to throw down with Titus Andronicus amongst the hip masses in Williamsburg. First round of Brooklyn Lagers are on you.
