TIM KASHER
8:30 p.m. Stickyz. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

With the exception of the The Faint — that irritating, albeit ahead-of-the-curve, '80s-biting outfit — I gotta plead damn near total ignorance of that whole Omaha, Neb., Saddle Creek Records scene.

Before a few minutes ago, I'd never listened to note one of Bright Eyes or Azure Ray or Son, Ambulance or Rilo Kiley or Tilly and the Wall (ugh!) or Desaparecidos or Cursive or The Good Life, the latter two featuring the prolific Tim Kasher.

While Cursive had legions of adoring fans, the band was also known for its on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-a ... no wait, off-again, on-again, off-again status. Kasher's more recent outings — Cursive's 2009 album "Mama, I'm Swollen" or his 2010 solo effort "The Game of Monogamy" — are still strident, heart-on-sleeve affairs, but aren't nearly as tiresomely precious as much of the rest of his label peers' work.

Cursive has proven to be one of the most enduring bands of its scene and era, and the smart money says Kasher will probably pack out Stickyz. Aficionado opens the show.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
