Over the years, Cursive fans have held on tight as the beloved band went through several on-again, off-again phases, but the band's latest release, I Am Gemini, finds a mature band that is well connected to its past while setting out on a solid path with no signs of giving up any time soon. This record is unique in that it gives a full fictional narrative throughout the tracks. Unfortunately, the show sold out early, but Soda Bar and Tin Can offer up some viable indie options.
