Tim Kasher, who keeps busy as frontman for Cursive and The Good Life, released a solo album near the end of 2010. The album, The Game of Monogamy, and Kasher's first solo release, will not be his last, as he's prepping to lay down the tracks for a follow-up. Kasher hasn't been out of the game, however, as Cursive released their latest record I Am Gemini just over a year ago. Supporting Kasher on this tour is Birthmark, the solo project of Nate Kinsella, formerly of Joan of Arc, and present member of Make Believe. Along with his cousins, brothers Tim and Mike Kinsella, Nate had hands in many a Chicago-area indie rock band over the years. The Space will play host to Mike Kinsella in May when he brings his solo project Owen to town. Connecticut band Suns are set to open the show.
