    "Titus Andronicus' Patrick Stickles Says Next LP Will Be a 30-Song Rock Opera" That is the greatest fucking thing I've heard all day.

    feel like all of their albums are approaching perfect, but local business is the furthest (those filler tracks don't do much for me). i listened to airing last, but goddamnit it may just be their best. the monitor still kills it though

    Seen them a ton live and hung out with Patrick afterwards (staying next door to me). Every show is an incredible performance and Patrick is a great guy that I could talk to for hours and hours. And we did. Amazing time. Don't miss them if they're in your area!
