Listen: Cake, Williamsburg, Concert, Tomorrow!
What more do we need to say? You know them from some of their amazing albums- Motorcade of Generosity, Comfort Eagle, Fashion Nugget, and Prolonging the Magic. Sure, the latest one released last year, Showroom of Compassion, might not bring the radio hits like “The Distance”, “Short Skirt/Long Jacket”, “No Phone”, or “Never There”, but it’s still a solid record with few weak tracks.
Sacramento’s own alternative rock band, Cake has been around for around twenty years now, and they still have a reputation for putting on a great live show. Hopefully, you’ll join us in checking them out tomorrow evening (8/10) at the Williamsburg Park. The venue can be a bit hard to find, but is an amazing waterfront outdoor spot for the summer, at Kent Ave at North 12th St in Brooklyn. We caught OK Go there a couple of weeks ago, as part of the Lacoste Live Williamsburg Park Concert Series, and love the sound, space, and vendors (no roped off beer tents, and great brews at reasonable prices).
Tickets are $35 plus fees, and are still available at press time. Showtime is listed at 6PM, with no opener information as of yet. See you there! And if you can’t make this show, there are plenty more coming up soon that should catch your eye- including Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Jane’s Addiction, My Morning Jacket, and even Gotye!
