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!

About the Author

Greg dreamed up the idea for the Truly Network while living in Hawaii, which began with a single site called TrulyObscure. In 2010, when advertisers and readers were requesting coverage beyond the scope of that site, TrulyNet was launched, reaching a broader audience over a variety of niche sites. Formerly the head technology correspondent for the Des Moines Register at age 16, he has since lived and worked in five states and two countries, helping a list of organizations and companies that includes the United States Census Bureau, TripAdvisor, Events Photo Group, Berlitz, and Computer Geeks. He also served as the Content Strategy Manager for HearPlanet, a multi-platform app that has reached over a million users and has been featured in the New York Times, Hemispheres Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Fox Business News, PC Magazine, and even Apple’s own iPhone ads. Greg has written as a restaurant critic and feature journalist for a number of national and international publications, including City Weekend Magazine, Red Egg Magazine, the Newton Daily News, Capital Change Magazine, and an arm of China Daily, Beijing Weekend. In addition, he has served as a consulting editor for the Foreign Language Press of Beijing, as well as a writer and editor for the George Washington University Hatchet, the school newspaper of his alma mater. Originally from Iowa, Greg is currently living in the West Village of Manhattan.
