Omaha indie-rock band Cursive, who are touring in support of their new album Vitriola, made a stop recently in Louisville, KY. Having formed in 1995, the band has built a steady and loyal following over the years, with the crowd this evening eagerly anticipating the band's set. As the band took the stage, the crowd cheered and clapped loudly and were ready for a fun night. As the band came out onto the stage, frontman Tim Kasher mentioned that the band had just released their new album and that the band would be playing some new songs but would play plenty of older material as well-as many as possible. They started out their set with "Free to Be or Not to Be You and Me" and played a nice variety of songs throughout the night, including "A Gentleman Caller", "It's Gonna Hurt", "Big Bang", "This House Alive", "Into The Fold" and "Art Is Hard". Towards the end of the set, Kasher chatted a bit with the crowd, saying he had hoped to take the time earlier in the day to see what kind of midterm candidates we had in TN, which got a good laugh from the crowd, who told him he was in KY, not TN! He laughed with the crowd and apologized, mentioning how he had been thinking about Bob Corker all day and had TN on his mind! He told everyone to be sure to vote. He said he understood how hard it could be for some people to doubt that their vote matters in a red state, but that it does! He had talked to friends of his in Nebraska who felt that way. He then ended the set with "Staying Alive", telling the crowd that if all went well they would come back out and finish up again. The band then briefly left the stage before coming back out for a three song encore, starting out with "Dorothy At 40" followed by "Under The Rainbow", ending their set with "From The Hips". They played a fun and energetic set and made sure the crowd had a great time! Chicago bands band Campdogzz and Meat Wave opened the show.
