SPLIT SINGLE OF THE WEEK: “NO FUTURE” BY TITUS ANDRONICUS AND CRAIG FINN

Craig Finn and Titus Andronicus kick off tour February 29 at Webster Hall

Craig Finn and Titus Andronicus kick off tour February 29 at Webster Hall

Who Titus Andronicus and Craig Finn
What: “No Faith / No Future / No Problem” tour
Where: Webster Hall, 125 East Eleventh St. between Second Ave. & Bowery, 212-353-1600
When: Monday, February 29, $23, 8:00
Why: Last July, Brooklyn-based indie punks Titus Andronicus teamed up with Greenpoint-based Hold Steady leader Craig Finn on a raucous version of the Replacements’ “Bastards of Young” at Shea Stadium in Bushwick, even if Finn, who was raised in Minneapolis just like the ’Mats, forgot some of the words. They had so much fun — the set also included Billy Joel’s “You May Be Right,” with more garbled lyrics — now they’re going out on the road together, kicking off their “No Faith / No Future / No Problem” tour February 29 at Webster Hall. Titus Andronicus is supporting its latest release, last year’s The Most Lamentable Tragedy, while Finn is highlighting his second solo record, last September’s Faith in the Future. The future is what this tour is all about, as they just released a split single in which Finn, with the help of Patrick Stickles and Adam Reich, covers TA’s “No Future,” which has appeared in four parts on three of the band’s albums, while TA (Stickles and Reich), with the help of Finn, covers Finn’s “No Future,” from his first solo disc, Clear Heart Full Eyes. You can check out both songs here. We have a feeling they’ll all make sure to remember the words this time around.
