    Baeble's latest concert turns the clock back to the '09 edition of the SXSW Festival with this hot blooded performance from Saddle Creek heavyweights, Cursive. Fresh off the release of the band's latest batch of impassioned and conflicted rock songs (Mama, I'm Swollen), the band announces their return to form with an ecstatic performance for a zealous, 1 am crowd. Here, distinguished front man Tim Kasher stands as the wiley, fire breather at the helm of his seasoned, Omaha based outfit. Yes, there are moments where Kasher's knowing vocals dip below the band's intense, instrumental offering. But when he breaches, when Kasher calls upon the full blow of his voice, he offers a stinging sort of siren that, at least to us, plays like an absolute revelation. He may not be a mad man, but we're pretty sure he'll stop nothing short of owning the stage, the venue, and even a mass of people gathering outside on 6th street (see "The Martyr"). - David Pitz
