8 p.m., Revolution. $12 adv., $14 d.o.s.


They've been together for almost 15 years, but it hasn't been easy. The members of Cursive have broken up at least once and the band's gone on a three-year hiatus twice between albums. After 2006's “Happy Hollow,” original drummer Clint Schnase quit. With guitarist/vocalist Tim Kasher lately wrapped up in his side-project the Good Life, Cursive's “Mama, I'm Swollen,” released this past spring, came almost by surprise. The album finds the band evolving, or in Kasher's case, contemplating growing old —  “I spent the best years of my life waiting on the best years of my life,” he yelps on “What Have I Done?” Sonically, even with a new drummer, there are still shifting time signatures and more than a few moments of dissonance, but, overall, the material is more restrained, subdued even. If recent show reviews are any indication, the band's live show is all about covering the full catalog, though. Omaha's Capgun Coup opens along with the See, fresh off a mini-tour of surrounding states.
