@ the Titus Andronicus show @ Monster Island (more by Leia Jospe)
Titus Andronicus

Along with a link for $18 tickets, which go on sale Friday, September 11th at 10am, there's some new insight into the lineup of Fucked Up's November 5th Chemistry of Common Life show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple. The show will feature "Andrew W.K. (Keyboards) / Vivian Girls (Backup Vocals) With Guests: Titus Andronicus / Katie Stelmanis." Sounds good!

You can also catch Titus Andronicus on October 15th at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. It's the last date of their current tour with So So Glos. Vivian Girls are on tour at the moment too, with the Beets. They play their next NYC show right after they get back, which will also be their first of two shows at a Masonic temple in one week.... it's on Halloween at the Ridgewood Masonic Temple with Crystal Stilts (followed by the F'd Up Masonic show listed above).

Andrew W.K. (whose new album, 55 Cadillac, is out now) is collaborating with Calder Quartet at his own gigs this fall. Did anyone happen to catch him on the street on the 5th?

Katie Stelmanis's amazing video for "Believe Me" and a recent interview are posted below...
