Cracker @ Ashley Street Station 10/7/2016

Renowned rock band Cracker will be performing a local  Valdosta show at 10pm on Fri. Oct 7th at Ashley Street Station.
Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders David Lowery (also from Camper Van Beethoven) and Johnny Hickman have been at it for a quarter of a century – amassing 10 studio albums (including their most recent acclaimed double LP Berkeley To Bakersfield), multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe ("Low," "Euro-Trash Girl,”  "Get Off This," “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name a few), and a worldwide fan base - that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry - continues to grow each year.

“Brian Wilson may have invented the rock & roll ideal of California, but David Lowery is doing more than his share to chronicle the way life is lived in his adopted home state in the 21st century. 'Berkeley to Bakersfield' is one of Cracker's most ambitious and satisfying sets in quite some time, as good as anything they've given us since 'Kerosene Hat' in 1993.” - ALL MUSIC

“Cracker are still getting it done more than 20 years on.” - SPIN

“The Bible of current Americana. Surpasses 'Kerosene Hat' and 'The Golden Age'… this double disc is their best work.” - EL PAÍS
