New Jersey-based punks Titus Andronicus established themselves as one of indie's strongest live acts on the heels of 2008's lo-fi salvo The Airing of Grievances and 2010's American Civil War-based The Monitor. Still, finding that the bulky instrumentation of those LPs made it challenging to formulate a show that could be truly faithful to their studio output (the Vandronicus doesn't have room for trumpets, bagpipes, and a piano!), frontman Patrick Stickles and co. scaled back for the new Local Business in hopes of finding an easily reproducible aesthetic for the road. The result finds a more economical middle ground between Thin Lizzy's muscular riffing and the Mats' road-rock, making it easier for this five-piece to focus less on making sure bells and whistles are aligned and more on maximizing their many other virtues. With Ceremony and Buildings. 18+.
