Be Our Guest: Titus Andronicus

BOG-titus-andronicusWin tickets to see Titus Andronicus at The Catalyst on SantaCruz.com 

With a name taken from a Shakespearean tragedy, the band Titus Andronicus brings together elements of punk and indie to create melodic, thrash-along songs that sound part classic punk and part sea shanty. The New Jersey-based band’s latest offering, The Most Lamentable Tragedy, is a rock opera in five parts in which the protagonist is visited by his doppelganger. Pitchfork Media wrote that the album is “a 29-track, 93-minute rock opera that immediately restored their claims to outsized ambition, as only a 29-track, 93-minute rock opera might.” 

INFO: 8:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $13/adv, $15/door. 423-1338.
