- Titus Andronicus
March 23. New Jersey-bred punk juggernaut Titus Andronicus has strong ties to the Hudson Valley; they recorded three albums, including 2010's breakthrough, The Monitor, with area producer Kevin McMahon. Last July, the group topped the heights of their previous epic works by releasing the three-LP The Most Lamentable Tragedy. Brooklyn's Craig Finn is the front man of the similarly Springsteenesque quintet the Hold Steady, and is himself no stranger to our region via his band's many local appearances. In September 2015, he released his second solo album, Faith in the Future. Vocal fans of each other's music, it was only a matter of time before Titus and Finn toured together, and here they are with this date at the Hollow. (The Moth and the Flame flutter in March 9; DMA's dazzle March 26.) 9pm. $18. Albany. (518) 426-8550; Thehollowalbany.com.
