Cursive

Cursive : Live

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009 marked the official release of Cursive’s Mama, I’m Swollen (QRO review), the Omaha band’s sixth album.  A full house gathered at the Bowery Ballroom (QRO venue review) to celebrate for night two of the band’s sold out New York City engagements, as they toured Mama on their way to South-by-Southwest in Austin (QRO festival preview).

The crowd was bursting with excitement.  The songs performed spanned their entire career, from new tracks to crowd pleasers to long time favorites.  Once the first few notes of songs became recognizable, fans would let loose.  The uncommon reactions of some made you wonder if you were at a rock show or at a sporting event.

Cursive delivered a tight, energetic two hour long performance.  Fortunately, the influence of anger and alcohol seemed to be at a minimum on stage.  Having seen them twice, tonight was the best by far.
