Cursive, Ladyfinger news; The Envy Corps tonight; Blitzen Trapper, Dean Armband Saturday; Le Loup Sunday…

Cursive announced yesterday that it’s playing at Lash’s 6th Annual Toy Drive Dec. 13th at The Waiting Room — that’s quite a coup for a benefit concert that has really picked up steam over the years. Pollstar is showing Capgun Coup also on this show; I’m pretty confident that it’ll sell out. The $14 tickets go on sale this Saturday.

Also going on sale this Saturday are tickets to the Mousetrap reunion show Dec. 23 at The Waiting Room with Beep Beep (their final show ever, and Chris Hughes is playing, too) and the recently reunited Mercy Rule. Only $8!!! Better get in line…

Some old news that I’m not even sure is newsworthy: A few weeks ago I was told that Ethan Jones no longer is playing bass in Ladyfinger. Sure enough, he isn’t listed on their myspace page, and yesterday Saddle Creek confirmed that Ethan no longer is in the band and that Ladyfinger is working on finding a replacement. It’s been a while since Ladyfinger played, and they have no shows scheduled. Frontman Chris Machmuller has been splitting his time playing guitar in Dance Me Pregnant, and I’m hearing rumblings that a new project may be afoot. Stay tuned…
