How did you spend Easter Sunday? I was in the rock 'n roll church called Union Transfer seeing Titus Andronicus. Do you know this band? They are funny - their website says that they have been specializing in punk solutions since 2005. Titus is led by Patrick Stickles, a very un-punk like personality but cool, funny and a guy who can craft great get-up-and go songs with a lot of heart. I haven't seen a band with three guitarists for a long time; it reminded me of the old southern rock bands like the Outlaws, Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet - a thick wall of sound used by Titus for a different purpose, but I love them all anyway. More on southern rock in a different post.
Here's a link to their official site:
Check them out. I also uploaded a couple of crappy photos taken with an iPhone 5 - if you have one, you know how much the camera sucks and how much you envy the guy with the Samsung getting the good shots. Anyway, the pictures give you a sense of what was happening there on Sunday, but don't capture the humor of Patrick, the LOUDNESS of the band, the energy of the songs, or the moshing/crowd surfing taking place.
Have a good weekend!
