Cursive returns to The Waiting Room … so does Murs; Daedelus at Vega; Simon Joyner and Orenda Fink play Slowdown voting show

1% Productions announced a few new shows today, including Cursive, Murs x Mayday and Bahamas.

Cursive plays The Waiting Room on March 21. The tour follows Saddle Creek’s Nov. 24 reissue of their 2003 masterpiece, The Ugly Organ. Cursive will be playing from its extensive catalogue, but with a cellist on tour, will draw heavily from The Ugly Organ for setlists. Tickets go on sale Friday for $13.

The Ugly Organ’s reissue will include a double LP on 180-gram vinyl, liner notes with rare photos and original artwork, handwritten lyrics, lists of tour dates from the era and an introduction written by Kyle Ryan of The A.V. Club. Pre-order for the reissue is available here.
