The Must List

The Cure

Moody rockers touring with the Curiosa Festival -- The Cure -- The Must List 2004

AGE 26
MUSTWORTHINESS The Cure, whose moody grooves brightened many Goths' dark days in the '80s, are hitting the road with contemporary kindred spirits like Interpol and the Rapture (plus such underground all-stars as Melissa Auf der Maur) for the Curiosa Festival.
WHY TO SEE ALL 18 TOUR DATES If you catch more than one show (the tour kicks off July 24), don't expect any repeat performances. ''We tend to draw from about 75 to 100 songs,'' says singer Robert Smith. ''And I generally write the set list 15 minutes before we go on.''
NEXT A new album, ''The Cure,'' drops June 29.
