With stops at the Tralf Music Hall, Town Ballroom and the 9th Ward already under its belt over the years, New Jersey’s Civil War-inspired punk rockers, Titus Andronicus, will return to Buffalo during winter’s waning days on March 21 for a return engagement at the Tralf (622 Main St.).
Last summer, the group released its fourth studio album “The Most Lamentable Tragedy,” a five-act rock opera that pushed the already ambitious band into another level. The in-the-works record was heavily teased by Titus frontman Patrick Stickles the last time Titus played the Tralf in 2014, so fans can finally get a listen of the now-completed work once spring comes along.
Opening for Titus Andronicus will be Hold Steady leader Craig Finn. The Boston born singer/songwriter will be on tour to support his most recent solo offering “Faith in the Future.” Finn is no stranger to Titus as the musician played the role of Walt Whitman during a handful of spoken word intro/outros on the band’s breakthrough album “The Monitor” back in 2010.
Tickets for the show go on sale Dec. 18 for $16 (box office, Ticketmaster).
