American alternative rock band Cracker is set to hit the stage at SLO Brewing Co. on Monday, July 6 at 7:30 p.m.
The show will kickstart the tour supporting the release of their recent double album, Berkeley to Bakersfield.
“The first album is more of a rock-punk album influenced by the Berkeley/San Fran area and the second is more country, influenced by Bakersfield,” Cracker representative Tony Bonyata said. “Both of those genres have been a part of them since they put an album out.”
Together since 1990, cofounders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have traveled around the state. While both rock-punk and country are integrated throughout previous albums, Berkeley to Bakersfield individualizes the genres into two regions.
“They play all over California, and what’s cool about the new double album is that it’s all about California,” said Bonyata.
Berkeley to Bakersfield is the band’s 10th studio album, and although it depicts two very different flavors of their music, San Luis Obispo will get a taste of both on Monday night.
The SLO Brew show is restricted to ages 21 and over. Tickets are $20 in advance or $23 at the door, and they can be purchased on the SLO Brew website.
