I have been fortunate to see a lot of music in 2008. Some of it I knew was going to blow me away, but most I had a good time but may forget about it a few months from now.
Cake at Wakarusa 2008 was the 1 show this year that I walked in with zero expectations and was completely blown away. I had a great time at this show and it is definitely one of my top 10 shows in 2008.
Of course I have heard Cake on the radio. I even owned a copy of Fashion Nugget in 1995 and sang along with The Distance. But when we walked over to the late night tent to see Cake a few weeks ago I did not know what a great live band they are.
This show has funky beats, sing alongs, an amazing cover (War Pigs) and some hilarious stage banter. See if you can pick up on the soda can red, white, and blue references in a couple of songs...
