You might say Cracker is of two minds. Yeah, it’s the minds of founders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman. It’s the slow brood of Low and the hard drive of Get Off This. But it’s also two sets of California musical influences: the hard-rock northern Bay area scene and the twangy inland country scene. It’s a combination that’s worked for them for 24 years, with hits like Teen Angst and Euro-Trash Girl. Their recent double album, Berkeley to Bakersfield, explores both sides of this band that’s amassed multiple gold albums, sell-out crowds, and an ever-growing fan base. We’re thrilled to welcome Cracker to the Main Stage.
Our teen reviewer says:
Even though I didn’t grow up in the '90s, I can still appreciate this band for their abrasive instrumentation, stunning guitar riffs, raspy vocals, and the overall angsty atmosphere they create with each song. And I really like that their lyrics are as true today as when they wrote them: "If you want to change the world, shut your mouth and start this minute." If you are looking for a band during the day that rocks hard with a sarcastic twist, then this band will blow you away.
