Cake

After a tumultuous early evening (I'm sure you heard or experienced it), Cake took to the stage at Rumsey Playfield (Summerstage) in Central Park to play a round of jams last night (9/16) to a wet crowd. Raincoats were not an uncommon site. Though the heaviest of the precipitation had long since passed by the time the band had launched into their set, Summerstage did get its share of rain during the band's performance though reportedly it did not disrupt Cake's set which kicked off at 8pm (no opening band) (it was "an evening with Cake"). The played "The Distance", "Frank Sinatra", "Comfort Eagle" and other songs before eventually shuffling off stage after 10PM, with a 15 minute intermission in between.

The show is part of a larger tour for Cake, and was the first of a string of seven Summerstage shows that continue tonight with Ween. More pictures from last night, below...

So many "brah dudes" at the show.

Awesome they still have a voice through Cake.

nice intimate pic of the couple kissing, with the girl looking off to the side self-consciously as the camera flashes in her face.

I am seriously disappointed in the lack of Teva sandal pictures

That first pic of the d-bags in baseball hats holding beer cans epitomizes the lameness, cluelessness, soullessness, and talentlessness that is Cake.

I am so glad that I am not in band whose audience consists of MBA-school bros who don't have the first clue about what music is.

Look at that guy in the red jacket, clapping and smirking like he just saw Led Zeppelin in 1974.

because only d-bags drink beer or put their hats backwards

That last comment by the d-bag at the day job epitomizes the cynicism, the elitism, the dogmatism, and the sadism that is the Brooklyn Vegan commenter.

Right on bro, celebrate getting into business school and getting engaged to an ugly bimbo by rocking the Cake shirt you bought five minutes ago!

Wow. BV is really throwing us a softball here. A post about Cake playing that consists almost entirely of pictures of yuppies from the audience? Release the fucking hounds.

I love all of this cake hate...hilarious

"remember the big rain storm after the lips played their set at brooklyn bandshell many years ago? that was a big storm too. then cake went on and no one stayed."

I went to both shows. The rain came down so hard and fast that the sewers overflowed. Shit was literally coming out into the crowd. No wonder no one stayed. I did and Cake performed a great set. They started off with "It's Coming Down.:

You have got to be kidding me. Cake?

total douchebag jock fest! hilarious

Fedora rock. The singer has the most sarcastic sounding voice, if I was there I would think he hated the audience, the venue, and his own material when he spoke to them.

Posted by Let them eat | September 18, 2010 2:17 AM

fantastic hate. can't wait for the DMB MSG show report this fall...

Posted by Anonymous | September 18, 2010 12:57 PM

The storm was God's way of getting Cake off the stage and cancelling the show. Guess he missed with this one.

to me, the guy in the first picture looks more like a fairfield university grad who is currently working for merrill lynch and resides in yorkville. so glad bv is posting pictures of the regular folks and not some heroin looking hipster.

Posted by Anonymous | September 19, 2010 12:18 PM

lolz "regular folks"

Posted by Anonymous | September 19, 2010 4:48 PM

Speaking of heroin hipster...anyone wanna shoot some heroin with me? I've never done it but would like to try it once before I die. Preferable that you're a chic (attractive too), so that we can fuck after we get high.

^Ok, what's your number? I couldn't click through your anonymous reply.

so where are the pics of all the hippies & fratboys that saw ween at summerstage? even though ween are a much more acceptable band to be into around these here parts, 98% of their audiences are more loathesome than the jackasses featured in these cake pictures...
