Editors' pick

Titus Andronicus

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Over the past few years, it felt as if Washington couldn't go more than three or four months without a gig by perennial buzz band Titus Andronicus. (In 2011, the band opened 9:30 Club shows for the Pogues and Okkervil River as well as headlining at the Black Cat.) Maybe Titus fatigue explains why this week's gig at the Rock & Roll Hotel hasn't sold out yet, or maybe it's because most people haven't heard the band's new album, "Local Business." Not to worry: The 10 songs are packed with urgent, fist-pumping, shout-along indie-punk that descends from the Buzzcocks, the Replacements and the Stooges. But that's just the album: Titus Andronicus puts on one of the best live shows around. Don't wait to get tickets at the door and don't miss openers Ceremony and True Head.
