This weekend: Ben Weasel, Titus Andronicus

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Energizing and encouraged by his two-night stand at the club in August, recovering agoraphobe, irascible radio personality and founding father of pop-punk Ben Weasel returns to Reggie's Rock Club, 2109 S. State, for two more rare live shows this weekend. The Girls and the Challenged open at 5 p.m. Friday and the same acts take the stage again at 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $15; call (312) 949-0121 or visit www.reggieslive.com.

The Los Angeles indie-rock duo No Age is riding the bigger underground buzz, but for my money, New Jersey art-punks Titus Andronicus, one of the standout acts at last summer's Pitchfork Music Festival, is the real draw at a special free show at Reggie's Rock Club, 2109 S. State, starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, to celebrate the launch of something called the ShockHound website. (www.ShockHound.com). Concertgoers must register for tickets in advance at http://www.shockhound.tickets.musictoday.com/Shockhound/calendar.aspx.
