truest and i went to see titus androgynous play with overkill river
at the wiltern, last week.
truest’s foot was bothering her from kicking this bank robber square in the buttocks
so i got us balcony seats.
for some reason we were exactly on time and got to see titus’s complete set which is rare for me
cuz usually i pussyfoot around and miss a lot of the opener.
im sooooo happy i got to see the whole deal.
first of all you cant keep your eyes off of em. everyone has something to say and look at.
the drummer couldnt afford all of his drums, poor chap. aint got any toms.
just a snare, a high hat, a bass drum, and a floor tom.
and they are rocking out like the whole time.
then theres a girl guitar player on the right who looks like bonnie bills
if bonnie secretly wanted to be a cheerleader in a rock band while playing semi lead guitar
and occasionally: the violin.
i held the truests hand and i said i love you.
i said lets procreate right here. right now. and name the lad titus andrubyoubliss
they were like tom waits trying to audition for arcade fire while singing pogues songs.
and i think all the tunes were about the civil war.
overkill river didnt stand a chance.
they tried. tried hard. last time i saw them roky erikson was singing with em.
they needed brian wilson to compete against titus but im not sure even he coulda done it.
titus were like the angry replacements.
angry cuz they werent drunk maybe.
angry cuz someone stole some of the drums and they forgot to get that insurance.
angry cuz theyve gotta open for someone whose butt they just kicked all over the place.
we left blown away.
