“Four Score And Seven” (Live Video)


    Titus Andronicus are big into redemption narratives (you would be, too, if your band was named after a Shakespearian tragedy full of incest, rape and a mother who accidently eats her children). So this near-homecoming performance, recorded by Site & Sound at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, N.J., just a few miles from their home town of Glen Rock, offers a chance to see the guys (and gal) screaming one of their anthems about mortality and the Civil War in front of a crowd that welcomes them home after nearly two months on the road. It’s a raucus performance, filled with all the exhausted, cathartic sing-alongs you could want from a contemporary punk band in New Jersey.[more:]

     

    But fortunately for all of you that missed the chance to catch lead singer Patrick Stickles’s epic beard in person last time, they’re heading out on the road again for the rest of the summer and early autumn.
