Concert Calendar: Titus Andronicus, Trail of Dead, Yelle

Titus Andronicus w/Double Dagger, Dinowalrus
Wednesday, April 27, Black Cat ($15), doors at 8 p.m.

Titus Andronicus’ debut album The Monitor is a concept album based on the Civil War. Before their performance at Bulldog Alley last spring, I saw them sleeping in Sellinger Lounge. Double Dagger like to make noises with guitars. Dinowalrus sounds like a robot orchestra.

… And You Will Know Us by the Trail Of Dead, Surfer Blood, True Widow

Tuesday, May 10, Rock N Roll Hotel ($18), doors at 7 p.m.

Trail of Dead have been a stand by alternative rock band for over a decade. Their music is pretty straight forward. Surfer Blood are a poppy rock group whose debut album, Astro Coast, made a lot of buzz earlier this year.

of Montreal w/Painted Palms
Thursday, April 28, 9:30 Club ($25), doors at 7 p.m.

Like glitter? Of Montreal are from Georgia. There will be costumes, maybe even a celebrity cameo. Painted Palms are echoey and sound like what we hoped MGMT’s sophomore album would.

Yelle w/French Horn Rebellion
Wednesday, April 27, 9:30 Club ($20), doors at 10 p.m.

Yelle is a rock band. They play some fast songs, and they play some slow songs. French Horn Rebellion are weird.

  1. I thought the Shakespearean tragedy Titus Andronicus was playing and got excited… now I’m just bummed.

  2. @ Moose,
    You shouldn’t be. The band is awesome.

  3. “Titus Andronicus’ debut album ‘The Monitor’…”

    Wrong. Their debut album was “The Airing of Grievances” (2008). That’s -5 hipster points for Mr. Dodd.

  4. Yelle’s not rock.
    But is awesome regardless. Is anyone going?
