Renowned rock band Cracker will be performing three Northwest shows next month in Bellingham, Seattle and Portland. These shows (and tour) are in support of Cracker’s recent acclaimed double-album Berkeley to Bakersfield (out now via 429 Records).
Cracker’s Berkeley (Disc 1) album features the harder-edge rock sounds of the Bay area that has informed their music since their inception in the early ’90s, while the Bakersfield disc showcases their nearly 25-year love affair with Country & Roots music of the southern California region. And while both of these genres have been incorporated together to varying degrees on all nine of their previous albums, this is the first time they been compartmentalized on their own respective albums – one rock LP and one country LP.
