Ted Stevens Unknown Project with Cursive and Ladyfinger (ne)
Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St.,
9 p.m. Tickets $12
Ted Stevens was an Omaha music staple before many of his Cursive fans were born. In 1996, he was front man of Lullaby for the Working Class, as well as the short-lived Mayday, before joining Cursive as a guitarist and vocalist in 1999. Alongside core members Tim Kasher and Matt Maginn, Stevens has reveled in a flourishing career as a musician; not an easy feat by any means. After releasing 2000’s Domestica, 2003’s The Ugly Organ catapulted Cursive to another level. Soon the group was sharing the stage with notable artists such as The Cure, Interpol and The Rapture. With seven albums under his belt with Cursive, the seasoned musician is branching out on his own and presenting Ted Stevens Unknown Project to the world—or just Omaha (at least for now). He’s still playing with Cursive, but he’s also been releasing music under the Ted Stevens Unknown Project moniker since last January.
