Titus Andronicus @ Market Hotel

Titus Andronicus @ Market Hotel

Before there was Black Lips, there was Titus Andronicus....at Market Hotel on Thursday night (June 5, 2008).

Market Hotel was a full house for Titus Andronicus, even though they were the first of three second of four bands that night. Named after the bloodiest of all Shakespearean plays, Titus Andronicus have aptly christened themselves with a name that references a story of revenge. The crowd consisted of mostly of twenty-somethings happy to hear their own private thoughts howled from the stage. Despite the recurring themes of hate and self-loathing, the show had a surprisingly upbeat vibe to it - people were smiling. Their high intensity, crowd-pleasing shows prove that Titus Andronicus is a band that is ready to headline on its own. [Trendwhore]
One down, four more NYC shows to go for Titus before July 13th. More Market Hotel pictures below....

the red guitar is a gibson. looks a lot like an epiphone, but that headstock says Gibson.

um, no, it's not. read the fucking headstock asshole. it says Gibson.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 1:20 PM

um, this is the internet buddy. we can read whatever the fuck we want.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 1:24 PM

well, true. i can read what i want, and i'm correct. as, i know how to read. you, who are actually nowhere near my "buddy" can read whatever you want, and are apparently wrong as the name Gibson does not mean Epiphone. sorry. so i guess you'll have to go do, as you say, whatever the fuck you want. my advice would be to learn how to read. just sayin', brah.

kee-tripes people. really lookin for something, anything to argue about arent we? cant we all agree that those are some pretty guitars apart from the shitty danelectro

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 1:52 PM

they might have been better than black lips. at least they don't pee. well, i'm sure they pee. just... not openly.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 1:55 PM

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 2:52 PM

mmmm, sweet sweet danelectro. if only chan marshall came with the danelectro, i would buy one. not the new happy go fucking lucky cat power, but the old baddddasss one.

I am a friend of the band, it is an Epiphone.

Posted by Barack | June 10, 2008 4:40 PM

it is an epiphone dot, duh. notice the dot inlays? unlike on a gibson 335 that has block inlays.

Posted by Anonymous | June 10, 2008 8:38 PM

fyi...epiphones have block inlays too.

I am very very upset that there are no pictures of their amazing and also very sexy drummer. Wtf??

that red guitar is not a guitar. it is his disfigured schlong. look at how he holds it lovingly.

It's an Epiphone Dot, I have one just like this one, and his one has a fenderistic outpuck jack
