Hope you're all planning to attend tonight's City Weekly Scenic Bar Tour commemorating the end of mandatory private clubs. The drunken journey will feature performances by several fine bands along the way including Ghostowne and The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash at Liquid Joe's. Dan Day Trio will soothe you with cool jazz at the Bayou and Keys on Main's dueling pianos might inspire a jig or two. The Rubes will perform an epic three-hour set at Johnny's On Second. For more live music details check out the tour schedule and visit the participating clubs' Websites.

Slightly off course at In the Venue, Cursive take the stage. They walk a wonderfully jagged line between cerebral and primal sensibilities, celebrating base instincts as on “From Our Hips,” by analyzing our penchant to get hung up on words and expectations when we should probably just go with the flow—“We’re all just trying to play our roles in a play that runs ad nauseam.” The Omaha-based indie-rock vets strike the perfect balance of head, heart and id on Mama, I’m Swollen (Saddle Creek), an album that further refines the group’s alternately gentle/frenetic horn-fueled, jazzflecked sound. Time, its harsh lessons and subsequent battle wounds have been very good to Tim Kasher. In the Venue, 579 W. 200 South, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Tickets:
