the unluckiest band ever

"All my friends are buying diamonds for their girls
And bringing children into this world
Signing their name to a home on land they’ve captured
Me? I’m still writing songs I’m scared you’ll hear someday” — Carver, Library Voices
The Curst may be the unluckiest band ever. They’re from small-town Saskatchewan, and they don’t play country. Their lead singer Merle is too neurotic to actually show anyone his songs. And it seems they’re being stalked by some kind of guardian angel gone really, really bad. Their life on the road is such a series of injuries, freak catastrophes, and grueling hours in a beat-up van, that they are starting to wonder whether it’s just time to quit.
But sometimes, just sometimes, they make magic together and fly. Maybe it’s all worth it?
Then good fortune shows its face. To The Curst. All they need to do is keep it together and avoid any dodgy angelic interference for a few more days. What. Could. Go. Wrong?
Written by national-award winner Kelley Jo Burke (The Selkie Wife) and featuring the songs of Saskatchewan’s indi-pop legends Library Voices (Denim on Denim, Summer of Lust), The Curst is a funny, loving rock-musical about why year after year, generation after generation, bands climb into bad vans, and head out on another gig…no matter the cost.
