Titus Andronicus, Free Energy 

When: Tue., Sept. 21, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

Two bands, two of the year's best rock records: New Jersey's Titus Andronicus sprawls at the unlikely crossroads of E Street bombast, shoegaze haze and punk rock maw, their bristle and glory comingling in huge refrains and top-heavy ideas. Their second LP, The Monitor, uses Civil War arcana as an ecumenical entry point for lessons about well-read, tour van-traveled words about empathy and attitude. Philadelphia's Free Energy makes breezy classic rock fueled by some combination of The Cars, Thin Lizzy and Cheap Trick. Some call it ironic, others guileless. Let's stick with studied and sharp, and shut up before the chorus hits.—Grayson Currin
