Recommended Thursday Show: Titus Andronicus, So So Glos, Groom at Knitting Factory Brooklyn

I’ve extolled the virtues of these bands so many times now that I’m almost sick of blogging about them.  Except I’m not.  Because I love these bands.  The So So Glos/Titus pairing was probably one of the best tours this year, and this will be your last of many chances to see it.  Plus, I […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Titus Andronicus, The So So Glos, and The Smith Westerns at Monster Island Basement

This is the kickoff night of the Titus Andronicus/So So Glos fall tour.  A truly wonderful pairing that’s complemented at Monster Island Basement by The Smith Western’s own brand of modern punk- jangly, scratchy, with some Richard Hell snarl thrown in for good measure.  Listen to the anthemic “Be My Girl” below.  Titus and The […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Titus Andronicus at Glasslands

On the one hand, it’s a little lame to recommend this show.  There’s a lot of great stuff going on this Thursday (don’t forget the We Are The Wiley Benefit) and these Vice parties tend to get crowded really quickly.  But it’s Titus Andronicus.  And it’s free with RSVP.  And there’s free Colt 45.  Just […]

Recommended Monday Show: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and Titus Andronicus at Maxwell's

People really like Ted Leo.  He’s a great songwriter, his music is very palatable, it’s got a great political message, it’s fun.  I’ve never been that huge of a fan, but I like and respect him.  This combination with Titus makes it an excellent show to attend, even if you’re loathe to cross the river […]

Photos/Review: Titus Andronicus and Los Campesinos! at Bowery Ballroom

When I review shows, I like to be right up front.  I think you can best understand the heart of a live performance when you’re pressed against the stage with the weight of the entire audience bearing down on your ribcage.  You get a clear view of what’s happening on-stage, from pedals and guitar-playing to […]

Recommended Sunday Show: Titus Andronicus and Los Campesinos! at Bowery Ballroom

This show at Bowery Ballroom is definitely a can’t-miss bill.  New Jersey garage rockers Titus Andronicus put on one helluva rock ‘n roll show, I hear.  Dancing, moshing, and craziness will be had.  I love this band; they get back to basics- loud, fun, and youthful.  Check out these lyrics: “There’ll be no more cigarettes/No […]

Los Campesinos at Sound Fix Records

I’ve decided that I will do a daily post where I recommend a show happening in the New York area for the next day. I will call this “Show of the Day.” I will choose a show for the next day because I think people might want to plan ahead a little bit in their […]
