Dream Concert: Cursive

Over the years I have seen many of my favorite bands live but there is a growing list of bands I just have to see. With this Dream Concert feature, I have listed the set list and venue of my choice for one of my favorite bands that I have yet to experience live. My selection this month is Cursive. I have been a fan since Domestica and have had a couple chances to see them live but life happens...

As for the venue I would choose Newport Music Hall in Columbus. Which also happens to be the place where I will see them on March 3rd with Alkaline Trio and The Dear & Departed. I also chose Newport because I have seen some great shows there in the early 2000’s, including Modest Mouse and Sunny Day Real Estate and I wish I had seen Cursive at that time as well. Here is the set list I would choose if I were the one writing it out for the band the night of the show.


The Casualty

From The Hips


A Gentleman Caller

Some Red Handed Sleight of Hand

The Martyr

Dorothy At Forty


Bad Sects

I Couldn't Love You

The Radiator Hums


Let Me up

The Recluse

The Lament of Pretty Baby

The Game of Who Needs Who the Worst

The Rhyme Scheme

Sink to the Beat

I don't know how well that all would flow but it would sound great to me!

Hey, it could happen!

Nice idea for a series!

Seen Cursive a few times and one track you should be looking forward to is 'what have i done.'

Sounds really big live.
Still wish Greta was around though.
