Spend New Year’s Eve with alternative rock band CAKE when they perform with special guest Nellie McKay at City National Civic.
As they approach their twentieth anniversary, CAKE’s adherence to their original guiding principles has only grown stronger. Formed in the nineties as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school.
Now, in addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio.
CAKE’s most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, was released on their own Upbeat Records label and debuted on the US Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #1 — making the album as pure an extension of the DIY aesthetic as ever attempted by an established act.
Nellie McKay is scheduled as a special guest.
Tickets are on sale as of September 19th.
