Shut the Fuck Up, Cake is in town and already sold out?! - Tonight @ Amos' Southend

Posted By on Fri, Dec 2, 2011 at 5:25 PM

Poster children for the short-comings of pigeon-holing, this act got lumped in with the alternative-rock movement based on the MTV ubiquity of the 1996 hit “Fashion Nugget” from the LP of the same name.

Still regularly treading the boards two decades after they started, the band’s output — including their latest, Showroom of Compassion — was more clever by half than any grunge act, their embrace of funk, soul, hip-hop and even country roots anything but Bush-like.

Album review for Showroom of Compassion:

They collected a devoted following even as their platinum sales plummeted, as evidenced by this sold-out show — scalper-time for the tardy, I’m afraid. Sold out.

Amos’ Southend.
