Cursive @ the French Legation Museum, 3/19

20 03 2009

I’ve seen some pretty rabid Cursive fans in my day. Luckily none of them were at the Other Music day party on Thursday at the French Legation Museum. After having my camera almost crushed by rabid fans at The Hold Steady show, I was not in the mood for more crazies. Very laidback set from the Cursive crew, which is what I’d expect at an outdoor sanctuary like the French Legation Museum.

Cursive’s latest, Mama, I’m Swollen, has been getting mixed reviews since its March 10 release, but the band maintained their brooding punk sensibilities, indie influences and of course, drunken tendencies in their set of new material yesterday. Frontman Tim Kasher ended the short set abruptly and walked off stage without even the slightest consideration for the fans screaming “encore!” What a badass.

Keep your eyes peeled for our interview with Cursive later this weekend. — Jillian Mapes
