The Glass House in Pomona, CA

Cursive’s The Ugly Organ is a few days shy of turning 12 folks!   The band hit the road to play the album in its entirety stopping by The Glass House in Pomona with label-mates Twinsmith and Philly’s own Beach Slang.  Twinsmith started the night off with their sweet psych-rock sounds and got the crowd prepped for Beach Slang.  Beach Slang killed it with their fuzzy guitars and frontman James Alex’s high energy.  In true punk rock style he ditched tuning towards the end saying “the day rock’n’roll gets perfect I’m fucking gone!”  RAD.  Leave it to Cursive to do something everyone is doing, like an album anniversary tour, and do it so much better.  They didn’t just opt to play TUO in its entirety but also managed to squeeze in oldies and definitely goodies like “Sink to the Beat” and “Big Bang.” Nostalgia was hitting pretty hard at The Glass House my friends.  The crowd made sure to sing every single word and the band played with all smiles.   Frontman Tim Kasher’s wagging finger and brooding stare were on point as he belted out songs the band hadn’t played in years.  Gretta Cohn played the cello beautifully throughout the night and of course Ted Stevens and Matt Maginn were awesome with their guitars that got plenty of swinging time as well. As a longtime Cursive fan myself and a room full of many more I’m sure, it was so nice that Cursive dusted off a lot of older jams we haven’t heard in years.  If you get a chance to see Cursive on this tour, make sure you go, you won’t regret it. Dates are here.
