|Played Basketball With Titus Andronicus Last Night|
So last night I went to the last night of the Benefit Braddock concert series in Braddock, PA, featuring the Hold Steady and Titus Andronicus. It was in a library and the merch was upstairs on a small basketball court. I thought it would be funny if we played 5-on-5 with one of the bands, so my friends asked Patrick Stickles about it when they went to get a setlist after Titus played. He laughed and said "fucking awesome." After the show, we went up to their table and talked to the drummer, bassist and one of the guitarists about it, and they were down enough to get a ball out and start shooting around. But by the time we decided if we wanted to play a game or just shoot, security took the ball away so they could clean up. What could have been. So I guess I didn't actually play with them, but I almost did, and that's a pretty cool story.

|oh FUCK YOU. Titus is probably my favorite fucking band and I decided to go to this other local show up on penn ave (which was cool, I guess) since titus tickets were so much and since I don't like the hold steady. fuck. insanely jealous i can't even tell you. that's an awesome titus set too.|
god damnit i'm so pissed right now. you killed my sunday
|Sorry, dude. I've only been listening to the Hold Steady for a week because I was going to this show with my roommate and some of his friends, but they put on a fantastic show as well.|
|that is a pretty cool story haha good job.|
|Also there were some really sloppy drunk girls in front of me during TA that nearly ruined the show. Before A More Perfect Union one of them was like "DEDICATE THIS SONG TO MY BOYFRIEND." Stickles said "Why?"|
Drunk bitch: "DEDICATE THIS TO MY BOYFRIEND WHO HATES ME RIGHT NOW"
Stickles: "Why does he hate you?"
Drunk bitch: "HE HATES ME BECAUSE I'M T--"
Other girl: "WOOOOOOO"
Stickles: "One at a time. Why does he hate you?"
Bitch: "HE HATES ME BECAUSE I'M TOOOOOO DRUNK"
Stickles: "Oh dear...This song goes out to that girl's boyfriend who hates her right now"
Bitch and all of her drunk friends: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
The boyfriend looked ready to dump her on the spot.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEW TITUS ALBUM
