New Jersey punk band Titus Andronicus make a stop in Philly tonight for a show at the First Unitarian Church that coincides with the release of their third studio album Local Business.  Led by Patrick Stickles, Titus Andronicus’ live shows are a force to be reckoned with and this one will be no exception, with support coming from hardcore punk outfit Ceremony and local post-punk band Psychic Teens.  Tickets to the all-ages show are $15 here; doors open at 8:00 p.m with music beginning at 8:30 p.m.  Below, watch a live-session video of Titus Andronicus’ “In a Big City” off of the new record.  Read Stickles thoughts on food fights, punk rock and Local Business in an interview with The Key here.
