The Freakin' Weekend III feat. Titus Andronicus, Screaming Females & Diarrhea Planet 

When: Wed., March 7, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the Rock Block, the Freakin' Weekend is back for another four days of punk rock devastation and mosh pit bruises shaped like Australia. There are plenty of reasons to be stoked for the annual celebration of Nashville getting freaky deaky — chief among them being a performance by the long-thought defunct Cali surf punks The Traditional Fools — but it's the mini-fest's inauguration night featuring New Jersey's Titus Andronicus that has got me pumped. Cliché as it may be for Springsteen to rear his ugly head in descriptions of garden state bred rock-and-roll, Titus' honest, sprawling punk odes to suburban misery reflects undeniable shades of The Boss. 2010's The Monitor is a hyper-literate punk masterpiece, thrashing wildly against drunken despair that deserves to be seen live. Fellow Garden State tate warriors Screaming Females and local party punks Diarrhea Planet open.
