SoundBytes: Yo La Tengo, Drivin N Cryin, Tig Notaro and more
-- Opening act goodies: Much-blogged-about Titus Andronicus will be opening for Superchunk at Czar on Dec. 4. Click here. (Side note: Do you think Titus Andronicus feels guiltity that they, and not the tragedy by William Shakespeare, are the first hit when you search for "Titus Andronicus" on Google?)
-- This might be a candidate for Soundcheck's 2011 WTF Concert of the Year Award, but in a good way: Delightful alt-comic Tig Notaro from The Sarah Silverman Program will perform at New World Brewery on Wednesday, Jan. 5. Huh? Yeah. This could be the start of another Wednesday-night comedy series at NWB, so get ready.
