Concert Reviews

Titus Andronicus at Larimer Lounge, 11/19/12


This was one of those shows where you couldn't tell which band people were there to see. Even when the faces changed up front, the energy level was equally as charged for both outfits. It's rare to see and experience the the type of visceral reaction both acts received. Was it because the show was for ages sixteen and over? If so, we need to have more shows like this in which passive observation is the anomaly.
