Cursive is a Band from Nebraska that has lately been touring in the Bay Area in California. I recently was able to enjoy a show of theirs at Slims in San Francisco. They combine fascinating lyrics with amazing guitar-play and are unparalleled when experienced live. For information regarding tours, merchandise, bio, and the like, go to:

They are one of the best new (relatively) bands around, and have an impressive 5 cds and one split pressed so far. If you have a chance, you should see what you think of their sounds.
