11/17/2018 Cursive at the Turf Club.

The event I had been waiting for months had finally arrived. Cursive returned to St. Paul at the Turf Club, a personal favorite of mine. They were on tour celebrating their brilliant new album entitled Vitriola. I’ve seen Cursive around 10 times and each show energized me to unheard of levels. Having been a huge fan of their previous albums I was excited to hear classic Cursive tunes and some off the new album.

I was very happy to see their epic cellist, Megan Siebe, joining them on this tour. She is one powerful entity within the band. Vitriola is also the first album in 12 years featuring a cellist. Megan’s style with the band is so powerful and her presence on stage is absolutely electric. My expectations were very high once I saw Megan enter the space.

Here is a video of the song Art is Hard. This is featured on their brilliant, 2003 album The Ugly Organ. Throughout Cursive’s set I was reflecting on past shows and am loving the angst shown due to the current BS politics in this country. Reading an interview about Vitriola Tim explained that he wouldn’t peg the music as overtly political, but it’s hard to separate when politics bombard us constantly. 

I met some new and longtime fans of Cursive at the show. I am very glad I didn’t get moshed into another dimension while at my typical stage right/front location.

Overall this was one exceptional night of music with a great message to not put up with anything disagreeable in society. I am 100% with that message and the incredible music performance. Do yourself a favor and see some live music and do as Wayne Campbell & Garth Algar do and Party On!
