Jan. 18 Cursive Performs Domestica Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 9 p.m., $12, onepercentproductions.com For those of you who remember seeing Cursive back in the Cog Factory days or watching them play Sokol Underground to an audience of 20 people, the evolution of the group since then has been astounding. Six studio albums, 6 EPs and 11 music videos later, Cursive is cemented in indie rock history. In honor of Domestica ’s 10th anniversary, Tim Kasher and the boys will play the album in its entirety as well as a set comprised of all the classics. “That’s mostly the reason we wanted to do it. Also, we just played it in Chicago and have gotten offers to play it in other cities,” Kasher says. “We felt it appropriate to do it in our hometown.” Lucky us. Cursive’s live shows swell with infectious energy unparalleled to most. Showing no signs of slowing down, Cursive is still the godfather of Omaha indie rock.
