While human beings generally receive criticism for living in the past, some bands are able to make a nice living off it.

Omaha, Nebraska collective Cursive is the latest group to revisit its recent history on the road; this current tour focuses heavily on its twitchy, emo-leaning 2013 release The Ugly Organ (a cellist is even joining the band to better bring the material to life). While Cursive's name suggests soft curves and a certain grace, however, cuts like "Butcher the Song" build on herky-jerky instrumentals that move with the stop-start momentum of a nervous teen learning to drive.

Whitney, Leggy and the Wind and the Sea open the show.
