You couldnâ€™t escape from Cake on Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night (Sept. 14). The Sacramento band played four songs on the vast outdoor stage the show sometimes uses, including three cuts (“Sick of You,” “Mustache Man (Wasted),” and “Long Time”) from the current Showroom of Compassion. At this point, 20 years into their careers, the band members are probably sick of their music being described as “quirky,” but itâ€™s hard to avoid that description as you work your way through the tracks here.
The “quirky” thing reminded me of my favorite Deep Thought by Jack Handey.
Laurie got offended that I used the word “puke.” But to me, that’s what her dinner tasted like.
CAKE performs two shows at Freeborn Hall in Davis on October 6th and 7th.
