Titus Andronicus @ NYU Strawberry Festival - 5/9/14
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.
In related news, former Titus Andronicus member Liam Betson (who has also previously recorded as Liam the Younger) is releasing a new solo album, The Cover of Hunter, on July 22 via Double Double Whammy (pre-order). The album features contributions from Titus frontman Patrick Stickles, Julian Lynch, Luka Usmiani (Ducktails, Big Troubles), Alex Steinberg (of Alex Bleeker & The Freaks), Ian Drennan (Big Troubles), Ian Dykstra (also ex-Titus), and Titus/Real Estate producer/mixer Kevin McMahon (who also produced it).
