Titus Andronicus headlined NYU's free, afternoon Strawberry Festival this past Friday (5/9) with a set that included a few favorites ("A More Perfect Union," "In A Big City"), a cover of The Stones' "Gimme Shelter," and a lot of new material off the upcoming rock opera the band have been talking about. Pictures of their set are in this post and on Facebook. The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die also played and pictures of their set are HERE.

Titus next play NYC during the Northside Festival on June 12 at Warsaw with Eagulls and Low Fat Getting High. Tickets for that show are still available, or you can also try to get in with your Northside badge.

Post city boyz such as Posted by Anonymous | May 12, 2014 11:44 AM often know what's best for a band of musicians. They're also great at picking out fruit. And mediating adult roommate bill disputes.

Hey Posted by Anonymous | May 12, 2014 1:39 PM, pick on someone your own city size. Why not punch Mogwai or Meg Ryan?

Stickles is The Kid.

Of course the one video from this show is of a four-year-old song. A true testament to their new material.
