Indie rock veteran group, Cursive, will take the stage at Café 11 on Monday April 9. The trio consists of Tim Kasher on guitar and vocals, Matt Maginn on bass and Ted Stevens on guitar and vocals. Cursive is well known for their energetic and entrancing live shows, as well as their well-crafted story telling through lyrical themes.
Cursive released their seventh LP, “I Am Gemini” on February 21st, which has been claimed to be their heaviest album yet. “I Am Gemini” is the story of two twin brothers who were separated at birth, and reunited in their birth parent’s original home. The album tells the tale of “mostly good and evil,” Maginn said.
Reflecting on how Alzheimer’s turned a granddaughter into a caregiver

Looking into her eyes I could tell that she no longer had any recollection of who I was. I reached out to touch her hand as I had done many times before. I thought I was doing it to comfort her, but in reality I was probably trying to comfort myself. It’s almost a childlike gesture that we do when we are in need of some form of security; it’s the power of human touch.
The realization of knowing that it would never be the same again was a hard pill to swallow.
