For a dude my age I probably like Titus Andronicus too much.  I’ve written about it on this blog before, but I think they’re one of the most exciting young bands in the indie and punk music scenes.  To sum it up with not-too-annoying-but-not-too-informative dose of simplicity: they write great lyrics and they play great music.  I was able to see a few shows last year (it’d be a lot cooler for me to brag about the fact that I saw at least four or five performances last year if I were about ten years younger, but WHATEVER), 2011 lacked any new Titus recordings.  According to frontman Patrick Stickles’ relentless Twitter stream, however, the group’s been in the studio working on new material for #LP3, which is going to be released sometime in 2012.

Based on the band’s tumblr account, I get the sense that me and the guys in Brooklyn indie band The So So Glos would get along.  In the few weeks that the account has been in existence, the group has posted pictures of flyers for Operation Ivy shows, the WWF’s Undertaker and Rodney Dangerfield album covers, among other pop culture .jpegs that I, and other likeminded music fans, enjoy.  The So So Glos have also been repeatedly recommended by one of my favorite bands, Titus Andronicus.  Titus frontman Patrick Stickles (also a Brooklyn resident) was even wearing a So So Glos t-shirt the first time I saw the group preform.
