Titus Andronicus, So So Glos, Pink Flag 

When: Fri., May 17, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12
Despite the presence of a 71-second harmonica ripper titled "Food Fight!" and a handful of refrains that can't be repressed, Local Business, the third LP by grand New Jersey insurgents Titus Andronicus, occasionally feels as stiff as the advice of an overbearing parent. The band's more polished than they've ever been, resurfacing their late Crazy Horse instability with texture and balance. Meanwhile, frontman Patrick Stickles seems dismissive and defensive, placing blame without seeming to take very much himself. But Titus Andronicus live has always been a bit of a religious experience: Stickles delivers the tales and trouble of his life with a zeal that's as much Pentecostal as punk. Out of the studio and off of the record, don't expect that familiar rush to be gone: For years, Titus Andronicus has wrestled its demons onstage nightly, and the battle's long been magnetic, no matter the specific victor. With So So Glos and Pink Flag. —Grayson Currin
