Led by singer/songwriter Dave Lowery and guitarist Johnny Hickman, Cracker is best known for the hit songs “Low” and “Euro-Trash Girl” and “Teen Angst.” The alt-rock band fuses southern rock and post-punk for a twangy eclectic sound. Lowery formed punk/ska band Camper van Beethoven in California in the 80s. That band had a massive hit with “Take the Skinheads Bowling.” Cracker’s most recent double-album Berkeley to Bakersfield and CVB’s last two studio efforts, La Costa Perdida from 2013 and El Camino Real from 2014 stand as personal odes to California.
This double-bill is a fantastic live experience not to be missed.
