Cake

Friday, Oct 25, 2013 8:00p to 11:00p

Cake epitomized the post-modern, irony-drenched aesthetic of '90's geek rock. Their sound freely mixed and matched pastiches of widely varying genres -- white-boy funk, hip-hop, country, new wave pop, jazz, and college rock.

Feb 26, 2008 - Zombie Chow on Caked Up
Potato Chip for the Brain...

Cake is what happens when a no talent act gets absorbed into the mindless droves of pot smoking teenagers whose aural depth extends only one knuckle deep in their ear canal... Cake's bland slow monotonal drone appeals to the masses due to its sheer simplicity.

I hear Cake's music and take note its popularity, I cringe a little knowing that the cult that fosters their existence is large enough to sustain them.

If singing about nothing is the new wave of music, we're doomed. I find more meaning in nursery rhymes...
Then again, maybe I just don't "get it". It's all subjective right? Maybe I just don't smoke my body weight in miscellaneous drugs and replace my liquid content with an equal amount of alcohol to "get it"...

Well my little mindless Cakeheads, enjoy filling the pockets of those record companies! It's what you're there for!
