Hello friends. It is our pleasure this morning to announce the record release show for our forthcoming third LP, "Local Business." It is going down next Monday, October 22nd at our favorite local business and number one rock and roll club in the world, the newly renovated Shea Stadium in Brooklyn. We'll be joined by Glen Rock's top stoner punk crew Liquor Store (featuring original TA drummer Sarim Al-Rawi), and by former Parts & Labor keyboard whiz Dan Friel, who will bless us with his ultra-distorted instrumental ice cream truck pop punk.
Tickets for this event are ten dollars ($10) and will go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday) at noon at the Shea Stadium website, via BrownPaperTickets.com. You can expect to pay something like $1.50 in fees, so maybe think of this show as costing more like $11.50. This show is pre-sale only, so no tickets will be available at the door the night of the show. Don't get left out in the cold!
As always at Shea Stadium, the show will be ALL AGES.
Here is the flier for the event, designed by Shea Stadium's own Luke Chiarutinni, aka the Iceman.
As long as we're talking, remember the great fun we had the other day forgetting that we've all listened to 'Local Business' via illicit internet piracy? Well, get back in that magic headspace, because the record is now streaming in full, legit-style, at NPR.com. Classy!
Okay, that's all for today. I don't imagine we're going to have much more to announce between now and the release of the album and the beginning of the tour, so let me take this opportunity to thank you for yr continued interest in Titus Andronicus. You can always find more up-to-the-minute information on Twitter and Tumblr.
