Omaha's Cursive emerged in the mid-'90s as an indie rock favorite, thanks to its dance-oriented post-punk and thought-provoking lyrics. The band has since added cello, horns and other classical instruments for a sound that's a bit more sophisticated than before. Fellow Omahans Capgun Coup open with a set of sarcastic and surf-y psychedelia filled with social commentary that might be easy to miss thanks to the infectiously fun sounds. Atlanta's Winston Audio, with its sound that's a cross between Soundgarden's grunge, Kings of Leon-like Southern-tinged indie rock and Foo Fighters-like power pop, is an eclectically appropriate opener.
