Last night I went to MUSO's final show, Titus Andronicus, in the Granite State Room. Let me say that a lot of people missed out because it was a great show that very few people witnessed. Local bands Kyoty and Luau started things off. I really enjoyed Kyoty, but Luau didn't really do anything for me. Anyways, Titus Andronicus played a really good set and kept the small crowd moving. The band, particularly lead singer Patrick Sickles was very friendly dedicating a song to communication majors who couldn't get all their classes and cracking jokes about the people who stole the newspapers saying "do you think it was that frat with the knife fight" and talking about Scott Sicko's last name between songs. After the show he took the time to chat with a few fans, shaking their hands and thanking them for coming. It was really cool to see a talented band that really appreciates their fans and sees them as equals. I would definitely like to see them again, but they will be leaving this week for a European tour.
I really can't believe today is the last day of classes. This year flew by and I have had a blast writing. I don't really know how much I'll be posting this week because there really isn't much going on this time of the year. We do have one more big post coming up, but I can't give it a specific date so stay tuned.
I also heard today that the men's basketball team is playing at UConn and they were picked for another ESPN bracket-buster game. It is nice to see them playing tougher non-conference opponents.
Good luck with finals.
Stay classy, not Umassy.
