We all have Robert Smith to thank for Ticketmaster’s recent public shaming. The Cure frontman and bona fide goth king forced the company into refunds and lowered service fees through just a few tweets. Talk about “Just Like Heaven.” Now in its 45th year as a band, the Cure’s mopey romanticism remains evergreen—despite the black clothes and smokey mascara. At Shoreline, the group headlines two shows for the weekend and weekday crowd. Tickets are, of course, cheaper on Monday, but either show will have all the moody atmospherics, lovelorn catharsis and decades of undeniable hits that any Cure fan desires.
