Cake Rocks Out Center Stage On First Of Three Sold Out Nights

Quirky, alternative, funk rockers Cake packed the first of three sold out shows Monday night at Center Stage in Midtown. Touring in support of their first new album in seven years, “Showroom of Compassion”, the Sacramento quintet delighted their fans by playing two sets with an intermission in between. Cake was founded in 1995 and comprised of vocalist/songwriter John McCrea,trumpeter Vince DiFiore, guitarist Greg Brown, bassist Shon Meckfessel and drummer Frank French. Only McCrea and DiFiore remain as the two original members.

AJC photographer Robb Cohen covered the show with his camera. Check out the online gallery. What did you think of  the  show? How many times have you seen Cake in concert?

It was a great concert! I wanted to see them in the past but never had the opportunity. I was so happy when I heard their tour included Atlanta.

It was an amazing show! My band and I saw them on Monday and it was one of the better shows I’ve ever seen.

AMAZING show! This is my second time seeing them but I’ve been a fan since 95…first concert was in NY but this venue made the night intimate and spectacular. They were spot on, engaged with the crowd and rocked our socks off! Should have bought tickets for all three nights!

Saw the show tonight. Enjoyed it so much! This was the 5th time for my husband and I; the Cotton Club, the Civic Center, the Roxy, the Tabernacle and now Center Stage. Thank you, Cake for coming back to Atlanta!
