FFF FEST PREVIEW: Titus Andronicus

Life & Arts Editor

Besides being the name of William Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy, Titus Andronicus is an up-and-coming indie punk band at this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. 

Titus Andronicus was formed in 2005 by five friends in Glen Rock, New Jersey.

The band has a gritty and sloppy sound.  The drums are loud and raucous.  The guitar strums hard and fast.  The vocals are not necessarily on key, but they are. Their songs feel like a couple of guys just jamming in the garage, but better.

Titus Andronicus sings of subject matter that is dismal, yet fun.  When the band sings in unison, it gives the feeling that we are going down, but at least we are going down together.

Titus Andronicus will bring their brand of indie punk to the Yellow Stage at 5:45 p.m. on Sunday.
