Surprise O’Leaver’s Shows with Cursive, Mynabirds, Orenda Fink | Photo Essay

Between Orenda Fink and Laura Burhenn returning from SXSW and Cursive finishing off its two-month tour over the weekend, bonus shows at O’Leaver’s on Monday and Tuesday had the feeling of a homey epilogue.

“Goddamnit, why do we do this to ourselves,” Tim Kasher joked onstage Sunday night at Vega while sharing news of the last show, after the last show.

But so far as we could tell on both nights, any weariness was superseded by the comfort of a home crowd, a familiar and neighborly one at that.

Below, find photos from Monday’s Cursive show and Tuesday’s three-act billing with Miniature Horse, Orenda Fink and The Mynabirds.
