CAKE at MASS MoCA

the band Cake

The rock band Cake is set to play an outdoor show at MASS MoCA May 28. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $35 ahead / $45 day of / $55 for preferred tickets.

Cake is still kicking after all these years. Blurbage:

CAKE made its mark flying in the face of convention -- an anti-grunge, post-pop band who scripted smart lyrics, stripped away the original over-engineering of its live shows in order to broadcast those lyrics with laser beam precision -- and above all, always have fun doing it. This high-minded, low-tech approach manifested an impossible-to-pin-down, witty and gritty, yet wildly welcoming and familiar sound -- and a mainstream following of cult-like devotion.

That weekend is also the opening weekend for MASS MoCA's huge new expansion, Building 6.

(They're building it bigger, they're widening the corridor and adding more lanes... Are they now accepting callers for these pendant key chains? Maybe in the gift shop.)

CAKE at OMMEGANG
And, as pointed out by grandmastergus: Cake will also be playing an outdoor show at Brewery Ommegang May 26. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 17 -- they're $50 ($15 for camping).

Comments

Cake is also playing at Brewery Ommegang that Friday 5/26.

Cake definitely has their own sound. For the uninitiated, check out their version of the Gloria Gaynor classic "I Will Survive": https://youtu.be/RfgS6CiqAHs.

And their interesting take on Black Sabbath's "War Pigs": https://youtu.be/IDJgwUeW7_k
(killer siren in this - not a comment said about many songs...)
