A Brave New Cracker
Two decades after David Lowery left Camper Van Beethoven and joined Johnny Hickman to form Cracker, the two will pare down their already basic signature alt-rock sound to the bare acoustic bones tonight for a Cracker Unplugged show at the usually folksy Swallow Hill Music Hall, 71 East Yale Avenue. In this welcome and brave departure from the venues usual programming, you can expect unplugged versions of such classic grungy Cracker hits as Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now) and "Low," along with newly penned, well-crafted, rootsy tunes from the duos 2009 release Sunrise in the Land of Milk and Honey.
San Francisco chanteuse Brandi Shearer opens the show at 7 p.m.; for tickets, $25 to $27, visit www.swallowhillmusic.org or call 303-777-1003.
Sun., Feb. 28, 7 p.m., 2010
