Cale @ Irving Plaza, 12/7/2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Cake

Likable and long-running pop ironists Cake released Showroom of Compassion are playing Wellmont Theatre on January 12 (tickets) but have just added a NYC show as well the day before (1/11) at Bowery Ballroom. That's a pretty small venue for a band who sold out Terminal 5 and Music Hall of Williamsburg last year.) Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/7) at noon.

These appear to be one-off dates, as the only other shows the band have lined up are LA on New Year's Eve and Lollapallooza in San Sao Paulo, Brazil in March. All Cake dates are listed below, along with the video to their single "Short Skirt/Long Jacket."

"Likable."

Big fail already one word in.

The only thing more incorrect than the spelling is the accuracy of this description fopr the band itself.

AKA the wellmont show isn't selling so we have to make people feel excluded and buy into it.

Do Wellmont shows ever sell well? I was there for Miike Snow and the place was 1/4 full whereas they sold out 3 nights at T5 earlier in the year.

Nothing against anyone who likes Cake, but man I fucking hate that band, I don't know why really, I've heard other bands I didn't like and didn't hate them but Cake just annoys the shit out of me

7:30 I have been to plenty of packed shows at Wellmont. Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem, Flaming Lips come to mind.

Remember the Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Cake show in Prospect Park? Great weekend, I went to both shows. Cake were fantastic.

Agree with 3:06
