CAKE Concert Tickets
When looking for live performances of eclectic music, fans can turn to TicketSmarter for CAKE tickets. Formed in 1991 as counterculture to the counterculture of 90’s music, Sacramento band CAKE seems to strive for definition by being undefined. Their organic approach to each song became their narrative, and their about-face with each song and each album flew against the so-called norm of how their story was supposed to go. Loosely termed as alternative, their music has been described as pulling from country, funk, rock, Mariachi, hip hop and Iranian folk music.
Their break-out hit The Distance from second album Fashion Nugget inspired head-nodding, finger-tapping active listening to the addictive lyrics. When the music video was released, true to CAKE’s nature, the odd dream-like sequence of images left more questions than answers but was still no less appealing.
The band devised their sporadic Unlimited Sunshine tour which carried the same name from year to year. Their supporting lineup has included dissimilar artists such as Charlie Louvin and Cheap Trick that reinforced CAKE’s uniqueness. They have also often toured with Ben Folds. Securing CAKE tickets will ensure fans have an opportunity to see what the group is up to next.
In addition to their original material, the band has taken the risk and pulled off cover songs ranging from Black Sabbath’s War Pigs to Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. CAKE’s understated vocals and multi-instrumentation fit across many song types, as the whole song becomes greater than its interdependent parts. Listeners may wonder how a trumpet fits into songs that certainly lean more toward hip hop or rap than jazz. With a number of gold and platinum albums under their belts, it has worked.
