Tonight: Titus Andronicus / Here We Go Magic

Garage anthem drunkards, Titus Andronicus, will be soulfully blasting ears at the Ottobar tonight. Fairly recent signees to XL Recordings, the New Jersey band now shares a label with Radiohead & The White Stripes. Decent company to keep, I'd say.

Their debut album with XL screeches along like a Saturday night out when you were 18 and sneaking into your favorite college bar, with seven too many shots of whiskey in your tank. While there are glowing moments, its mostly just a night of fuzzy awesomeness paired with noisey ambitions.

Seemingly an odd match, Here We Go Magic will share the bill. Luke Temple's new band sounds like some dreamy and interesting psychadelic folkish music. Not sure if it will do much to prepare you for the headliners, but should be solid and pleasant nonetheless.
