Let them see Cake
Cake fans, the band is going on tour in early 2006! Starting in Massachusetts, loping across the country (through Denver, yay!) and on into California for several shows, this will be a fun one.
For tour dates, go to http://cakemusic.com/tour.html. Tickets go on sale for many shows tomorrow, Saturday the 10th (or some California shows on Sunday).
I won tickets to see Cake live once (from KFOG, possibly the best radio station in the world) at Yoshi's in Oakland for a private concert. It was *so* grand. In addition to can't-stay-in-your-seat music, clever lyrics, and all forms of percussion known to man (cowbell? got it. little vibrating thing? got it too.), we got to sing along to "Sheep go to heaven, goats go to hell." It was like summer camp without the bugbites and hot guy counselors named Flash.
Here is a Cake track off the new Stubbs the Zombie soundtrack, which is full of fun retro cover songs. It is a hokey version of Strangers In The Night (exchanging glaaaances).
