“I like to think that we’re really just singing about the history of ideas and trying to insert ourselves into a greater continuum of thinkers throughout history,” says Stickles, “not in any kind of ‘here’s the new f–ing smart dude’ kind of thing, just like any point that you could think to make in a punk rock song has already been made ages ago … and there’s plenty of works of philosophy that have already explored the same themes that punk does.”

But a Titus Andronicus show is anything but a lecture. Stickles, with his huge beard, bumbles around and guzzles beer and could almost be mistaken for a homeless person were he not surrendering himself entirely to the songs, jumping up and down and generally airing all those grievances. So now that they have aired them, will it be harder to sing about what bothers them as they reach new successes?

“They’ll never all be out there,” assures Stickles, with a laugh. “I hope, but I doubt there will ever be a shortage of good complaining points.” [Metro Philadelphia]

Titus Andronicus, The Smith Westerns & the So So Glos shared a bill at Monster Island Basement in NYC last night (9/2). For The Smith Westerns it was the first in a small string of NYC shows. For Titus and So So, it was the first show of a month-long tour together. More pictures from the Brooklyn show below…
