Those rumblings that Jersey-bred Americana-tinged noise-punk heroes Titus Andronicus may be playing a show here this Friday? Confirmed. Finally. This coming weekend just got a hell of a lot cooler.
The critically acclaimed five-piece, whose sophomore effort concept album revolving around the Civil War, The Monitor, is looking like a well-deserved shoo-in for 2010 top ten lists, will be playing at Eclectic on Friday, supported by campus favorites The Postelles and The Parents. Oh yeah, and it’s free. Big ups to the Radical Performance Machine, and further details after the jump.
From the Facebook Event:
- “Titus Andronicus sometimes disagree on what is the right thing to do. Titus Andronicus like to scream and carry on at excessive volume. Titus Andronicus like songs which are fast more than songs which are slow. Titus Andronicus think slow songs are okay sometimes. Titus Andronicus never sing about love, only hate. Titus Andronicus have no hope for the future. Titus Andronicus believe only in nothingness. Everyone in Titus Andronicus was born to die. Titus Andronicus crave your approval but will settle for your utter disdain.”
- The Postelles are a New York-based rock band that craft infectious pop jams that “find the middle ground between Buddy Holly and the Ramones.” Their last EP was produced by Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, and the influence is hard to deny. You may have seen them rock Beckham in support of Yeasayer last year.
- The Parents are Wes’ homegrown spunky punk duo. They write songs about four loko and not wanting to go to school. They also love you very much no matter what.
