Indie solo artist Tim Kasher will play at Club Downunder at the Student Union on Thursday, Sept. 1. The Omaha native serves as the frontman for indie bands Cursive and The Good Life.For those unfamiliar with Kasher, his style is lighthearted with simple beats and chords.He has a unique voice but doesn't adventure too much with pitch. Still, it combines well with a wealth of harmonies and brass instruments in many of his songs.During his live performances, Kasher's performance style is mellow and contemplative and has a special contentment that can be seen on stage.His latest EP, Bigamy: More Songs from the Monogamy Sessions, will be exclusively available during his current tour. The short release contains songs he wrote while touring for his Game of Monogamy album, which received praise from several music publications.Kasher's lyrics tell stories, many of which are about romance. In the song "Strays," for example, Kasher sings, "I keep forgettin' to sensor the truth / That's why I better write some, some kinda love song for you."It's both what you would expect and want in good indie music.Kasher grew up with Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. While enjoying their respective success, the two remained close throughout the years, and there's even a shout-out to Kasher on the Bright Eyes song "Nothing Gets Crossed Out."For all of the indie fans out there, Kasher will not disappoint. If you haven't heard him before, now is the time to add him to your repertoire.Kasher is still early in his solo career, but has been at it for years in his other two bands.Doors open for Tim Kasher's performance at Club Downunder at 8:30 p.m. The show is free for FSU students and $10 for everyone else.
