By 7:30, Plush was busier than I'd seen it in a long while. Most in the crowd had already pushed forward and claimed their spots right in front of the stage or grabbed one of the few seats in the balcony.

Girl in a Coma opened the night with a thrash session of full on punk-rock-soul. By the time Cursive hit their first riff the place had sold out. Everyone was packed in tight and insistently singing along. Cursive played songs from all corners of their catalog, but whether it was old or new, the fans payed no mind; everyone was into it.

Minus the Bear came, they played and they threw out giant bouncy balls. The group of ladies beside me didn't seem to notice the wedding bands on the band members' hands and reached out at every opportunity to maybe, just maybe touch an arm or a bass or a leg. They knew every word and tossed their hair amuck in perfect rhythm. When the night came to an end, there were smiles all around -- and of course a few scuffles -- but all in all in was a solid evening of pop, punk and some catchy pour-your-heart-out rock 'n' roll.
