Anaheim's Chain Reaction--beloved all-ages venue known for breaking local bands, booking killer up-and-coming national acts and attracting angst-ridden tweens and tough-as-hell hardcore kids--is holding their first ever monthly residency with A Cursive Memory.
The LA emo group will be holding down the next three Thursdays at Chain Reaction for the venue's first ever residency, performing Feb. 11, 18 and 25. A Cursive Memory will change the set up each night and debut songs from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled sophomore release recorded with prodcuer Matt Mahaffey (Forever the Sickest Kids, HelloGoodbye).
A Cursive Memory shot to national fame with their 2008 major label debut Changes, which came out on Vagrant (Dashboard Confessional, the Hold Steady, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.)
Chain Reaction has been a staple of the Orange County punk, hardcore and pop-punk scenes for years so it will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming months with a potential onslaught of new monthly residencies.
A Cursive Memory's February residency at Chain Reaction on Feb. 11, 18 and 25, at Chain Reaction 16562 W. Lincoln Avenue, Anaheim, 7:30 p.m., $10.
