Mama, I'm Swollen
Here are a few show highlights that reminded us why we love the band so much:
-A flip-flop clad Kasher (who confessed to have forgotten to pack shoes) climbed on top of one of the large side speakers with microphone in hand, all without skipping a beat…That is, until he attempted to climb down and landed on his butt.
-An over-zealous crowd moshed, screamed and flung themselves full throttle against the stage. Which all seemed rather normal considering one audience member had previously jumped up to help reassemble a knocked over drum cymbal in the middle of a song. A less friendly fan flung his gum on stage for the guitar player to later step in.
-Despite numerous technical difficulties - everything from stage lights being switched-off accidentally by a certain Weekly staff member to equipment chords coming unplugged - Kasher took it all in stride and simply grinned and wagged his finger at the crowd.
Cursive @ Beauty Bar 9/24/09
-The band performed not only every song that a faithful Cursive groupie could ask for, but extended the show by playing a few unexpected covers, including "Get Me to the Church on Time."
-The show ended with the frontman jumping down into the audience, guitar in hand, and creating his own mosh pit/dance party. The already riled up crowd went even crazier, with casualties including eyeglasses being knocked-off and trampled and various audience members being restrained by security. Dizzying, but definitely wonderful.
There's only one question left: When's round three?
