Cursive at Horseshoe Tavern (31.03.12)

Cut it out your self inflicted pain is getting too routine, the crowd is catching on to the self inflicted song… Yes it’s probably true. Almost 10 years from when that song was released we might be on to them. But the formula works, and the frenzied crowd at the Horseshoe Tavern on Saturday ate up every second of Tim Kasher spitting out his angst and anger over Cursives dissonant crash of guitars, drums, and the odd trumpet.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra at Lee’s Palace (Jan 27, 2012)

This Will Destroy You at Lee’s Palace (May 30, 2011)

After a recent drought of live music I made the trip back to Toronto to catch This Will Destroy You at Lee’s Palace for an ear drum rupturingly loud set. Perhaps their name is fair warning after all.
