Titus Andronicus, "A More Perfect Union"


"The New Brunswick performance was a particular bright spot in a day packed with highlights—we were shooting Titus playing a basement show at a place called Fuck Mountain. The show was wall-to-wall with college kids who were really fired up to see the band return to their low-ceilinged roots."
New Jersey director Tom Scharpling talks about the extra live footage he recorded while making his video for New Jersey band Titus Andronicus's “No Future Part Three: Escape From No Future” back in February. Like the performance above, for example. The idea of being "proud" to be from New Jersey is a weird one. ("Hey Eddie, can you lend me a few bucks? Tonight, can you get us a ride," etc.) But I saw Titus Andronicus play a concert a few weeks ago, and it made me feel something close to that. They're pretty great.

As a New Jerseyan living in Boston, I'm actually amazed at how long it took me to discover this song.
