The ten best concerts this week: November 5-9

Categories: Best Concerts

2. CURSIVE @ SUMMIT MUSIC HALL | MON, 11/5/12
Cursive was one of the most popular and influential bands to have come out of the underground scene in Omaha, Nebraska, the same one that spawned Bright Eyes, the Faint, Azure Ray and Tokyo Police Club and Saddle Creek Records. Beginning in 1995, Cursive's brash, angular music coupled with sharp lyrics struck a chord with audiences who had maybe outgrown basic punk rock but not the defiant spirit found there as well as within Cursive's oeuvre. With the addition of singer and guitarist Ted Stevens, formerly of Lullaby For the Working Class, Cursive began to write an arc of concept albums that continue to this day, including its latest record, I Am Gemini, in which the group uses the mythology and imagery of the legendary twins Castor and Pollux as the core around which the narrative unfolds. (Minus the Bear and Girl in a Coma are also on the bill.)
