PUNK | Titus Andronicus 

Titus Andronicus — the Shakespearean play — is amongst the author's most violent and least respected works, and thus a fitting name for a New Jersey-based punk band. Titus Andronicus — band, not bard — indeed can be violent at times both in instrumentation, as well as within honest lyrics cynically spit out in an airing of latest grievances. The respect factor is where things deviate. With three critically adored records and a well-earned reputation for entertainingly raucous live shows, the band is proud to wear its home state's influences on their sleeves sporting Springsteen-esque rhythms and rollicking anthems. Best experienced within tight confines for an intimate and enveloping gathering, Rochester and the Bug Jar seem a perfect match.

Titus Andronicus plays with Baked and Taking Meds on Friday, June 6, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10-$14. Bugjar.com; titusandronicus.net.

    Rochester has its fair share of new breweries and brewpubs, but there's no shortage of beer options in our surrounding areas. When getting out of town this summer, stop for a pint at these breweries.
