Titus Andronicus @ 285 Kent - New Years Eve (pic by DoubleBen)
Titus

"Hello friends. Happy New Year to all. I hope that it is a healthy and prosperous one for you all, thus far. We were fortunate enough to ring in our new year on a positive note with all of our old Jersey buddies this past Friday night - thanks to all of you who came out to that show, and our sincerest apologies to those who had their belongings tampered with or carried off by unseen malefactors. There is some lesson here about personal responsibility and looking after the good of the community, but I will leave it to you to decode - smart kids like you shouldn't have too much trouble.

If you were at the show, you also maybe heard me saying something about how it was our dearly beloved bassist Ian Graetzer's last show with the band. Well, the reason that I said that was that it was true - Ian isn't in the band anymore. Shocking, I know, considering that Ian has been in the band since the very beginning (in fact, he and I were the two guys who decided to form the group) and been present for every glorious victory, every bitter defeat, and all the innumerable, interminable hours in between. Not anymore, gang.

"What is the deal?" you may be asking, "Do you guys, like, hate each other now or something?" No, we don't hate each other. In fact, the months since Ian announced his departure plans (yes, the months!) have been some of the happiest and friendliest in all of our organization's history..." [Patrick Stickles]

As already discussed, Titus Andronicus played a sold out New Years Eve show at 285 Kent in Brooklyn. That's a picture of the festivities above. Was your stuff stolen?

UPDATE: Or did you just leave it behind?

Titus's next NYC show will also definitely sell out. That's because it's taking place at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the February 10th Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls benefit are on sale. No word on who will be playing bass. All Titus dates below...

My jacket was stolen from the Passion Pit show

My morning jacket was stolen when I checked into the neutral milk hotel. I would like to file my complaint to interpol.

My jacket was stolen! Still have to say it was a great show though!

It sucks that Ian is quitting the band, he was a good guy. Also, now Patrick is not only the one original member left, but also the only member left who played on the first record.

Posted by Anonymous | January 4, 2011 7:54 PM

Isn't the drummer an original member too? I thought he played on the first record.

i got everything that was stolen. it is for sale on craigslist.

Not trying to be a jerk but I don’t even check my ish in “reputable joints” let alone put it in a pile in the corner.

why the fuck would you admit that you were at the passion pit show?
that band sucks.
getting your jacket stolen was probably karma for spending your new years eve with that awful band

9:01 and 9:02 made me lol. Eric's not an original member, but now that Ian's gone he's the one who's been in the band the longest (except for Patrick). My phone, wallet, and ipod all got lost but people were nice enough to find out who it belonged to and contact me, so not everyone at that show was evil

I never go to a show without a coat check. Serves you right, hippies.

LOL at you clowns thinking you have an actual community. You can put your shit in "a pile in the corner" at a hardcore show at Stolen Sleeves, and nothing will be stolen.

Hipsters, however, dont have a code.

Cool, a board that I post on, and the artists I listen to listed on my setlist.fm

You got me?

Someone stole my container of freshly whipped chickpeas. It was mixed with some olive oil, garlic and a bit of lemon juice. I forget the name of this stuff. But it tastes good on pitas.

I think I lost my virginity, though it might have been stolen

i work at the venue and we made a youtube video lost and found of all the items that we found after the show was over. watch it and come to desert island books to claim what is yours:

Posted by Stevie Pills | January 5, 2011 12:15 AM

This guy's constant verbose attempts to be a sort of neurotic Woody Allen-esque Brooklyn scene elder statesman would be a lot more endearing if he could, you know, actually play music well.

the amount of bridge and tunnel bros in office attire drinking the $10 four loko at the NYE show was staggering. gotta love the people in these comments who still praise todd p as master of the "underground."

i think it's cool when "bridge and tunnel" dudes are into Titus Andronicus and Real Estate. I mean, so what if people have "business attire" because they have jobs.

i just can't see the problem with that- at all.

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 12:49 AM

Titus are from Jersey. They ARE "bridge and tunnel."

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 1:00 AM

Too bad they are not from Long Island where the white thugs are from.


And 12:29 AM your white right? Im sure.

Stop with this band already.

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 9:33 AM

All you people crying about "bridge and tunnel," which bridge and/or tunnel did you use when you came to New York from whatever other part of the country you're from? Also, since, you're talking about a show in Brooklyn, which is connected to the rest of Long Island by neither bridge nor tunnel, but land, if someone looks suburban, what makes you think they're "bridge and tunnel?" Are you talking about people from Manhattan, where the term was originally coined to include people from Jersey AND Brooklyn/Queens/Staten Island/Long Island? ALSO, WHAT PLANET DO YOU LIVE ON WHERE THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO WEAR SUITS TO WORK ARE FROM THE SUBURBS!? The city's FULL of people dressed like that all the time, and in your precious Disneyland north of the Williamsburg Bridge, you're about to be finally priced out by them. Better start thinking about getting that EZPass...

Trust fund kids don't realize that some jobs actually require employees to wear "business attire". It's all apart of this thing called the "real world".

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 9:55 AM

yeah, we'd all like to work at a record store for minimum wage and have our parents pay our rent, however, having to wear a collared shirt to work allows for such luxuries as paying for shows and drinking alcohol. real bummer.

We didn't sell out man, WE BOUGHT IN!!

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 10:25 AM

There's a lot of whores with shitty day jobs getting their panties in a bunch on this thread.

Look, you lowest common denominator pieces of shit get a lot of advantages in life. You get the condo, the money, and yes, you get to price us out of whatever neighborhood we just made cool.

You know what we get back? The right to make fun of you at shows and on this thread. Because you are a bunch of pussies that sold out and I hope you hate every second at that clock watching shit corporate job you have.

Have a nice life and see you at Titus @ Mercury.

(I think you're missing the point)

Everyone's gliding over the fact that bridge-and-tunnelers are native New Yorkers and alot of Manhattanites are just parasitic jerk-offs from other parts of the country and world, clogging up the streets and getting in the way. Then when theyve been here for less than a year, they claim ownership over it. Doesnt work that way.

Youre not from here. Fuck off.

Posted by GregBX | January 5, 2011 11:23 AM

11:07 you're barking up the wrong tree. i doubt anyone at a titus show is raking in any serious dough. just because someone has to adhere to a dress code doesn't mean a) they're a "corporate sellout" b) living in a condo c) making anymore money than someone at mcdonald's

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 11:33 AM

11:07 works very hard at his job making neighborhoods cool.

Do YOU have the dedication to rock an ironic child molesting moustache wearing cutoff jorts while hand-making hummus?

11:07 is from Shaker Heights and has a trust fund. See you at Mercury!

11:07 has a trust fund.

i'm from long island, live in brooklyn
and absolutely hate the bridge and tunnel douche bags from long island and nj.

congratulations if you made it out of either

actually if you're from NJ, youre still a loser and i hate you.

where does 11:07 work that he's not a sellout? i would really love to know. not that he'd answer or come out of anyonymity.

Posted by Anonymous | January 5, 2011 6:03 PM

Patrick from Titus posted something relevant to this on his blog. apparently there are a plethora of unclaimed coast still at the place, so maybe there wasn't so much theft as there was was drunken blindness at the conclusion of the night.

Titus Andronicus is Springsteen meets left over Crack without the politics of the working poor and or leftist homeless junkies. There music is as dangerous as a freshman history class. Sooo arguing over the authenticity of the audience is laughable.
