Titus Andronicus - March 23 at Bootleg

“Titus Andronicus' The Airing Of Grievances brooks no bullshit. The disc is the sound of lusty youth ripping a gaping hole in the fabric of reality: Throughout The Airing's nine sawed-off anthems, the Jersey collective comes off like a clunky, blood-knuckled Arcade Fire that just doesn't have time for all that respectable crap. Because, you know, the world is falling apart around their heads, and they only have this one shot at eating, fighting, and fucking the entire universe." - The Onion AV Club

"None of these highfalutin' shout-outs will grab your ear as powerfully as the demonic E Street Band arrangements, rife with constant builds and breakneck rhythms... they've studied their philosophy and found that life actually is pointless, so why not go down swinging?" - Pitchforkmedia

"This fivesome of suburban punks are proud nerds. But they know when to kick ass... and the sizzling, storage-locker production makes it all sound like a cage match. Which it is — between a band and a damaged world." - Rolling Stone

"It's a cliche, but Titus Andronicus has got to be one of the hardest working bands around." – Brooklynvegan

"Not since the Replacements raised a pint glass in the name of punk has a gang of hood rats so rousingly resurrected the legend of the American bar band." - Entertainment Weekly
