Titus Andronicus @ Webster Hall, December 2nd
Titus Andronicus closed their tour in style at Webster Hall this past Sunday. Although they couldn’t match the craziness of the mosh pit that occurred during Ceremony’s opening set, they made their fans scream along, leap from the stage and crowd surf on the arms of their brethren at the sold-out show.

Mixing tunes off the recently released Local Business with classics such as Titus Andronicus, To Old Friends And New and A More Perfect Union, the band expertly weaved punk, indie and classic rock stylings to create their own signature sound. Throughout the evening, the New Jersey natives showed why they were honored as one of Paste Magazine’s Best Live Acts of 2012 and are darlings of (Grantland) writers everywhere.
Happy to finish the exhaustive tour in front of their hometown fans, the band tore through The Contours’ 1962 hit Do You Love Me as vocalist Patrick Stickles was literally carried off by the crowd. When the group returned for the encore Stickles remarked, “One more I guess. We don’t usually do this, but if you insist,” before starting a cover of The Rolling Stones’ Brown Sugar that brought the night to a close.
