Hear Cursive’s ‘Live at O’Leavers’ Series Featuring Performances From Speedy Ortiz + More
Cursive’s Tim Kasher, Matt Maginn and Ted Stevens and Chris Machmuller of Ladyfinger took over ownership of the Omaha, Neb.-based O’Leavers Pub in 2012. (The club is located on Saddle Creek Road, the street after which longtime Omaha label Saddle Creek Records is named.) Since then, they’ve launched an ongoing live series recorded at the venue.
As Stereogum reports, the latest Live at O’Leavers installments include performances from Speedy Ortiz, Beach Slang and the Hussy. Speedy Ortiz's show took place in August, not long after the arrival of their latest album, Foil Deer. You can stream cuts from all three band's shows at the bottom of the page.
Cursive last released I Am Gemini in 2012, while Kasher issued his most recent solo effort, Adult Film, in 2013. Kasher’s other project, the Good Life, dropped Everybody’s Coming Down -- their first album in eight years -- this past August.
