Virtual gallery: Cracker at Gasa Gasa

California-based alternative rock band Cracker delivered a show at Gasa Gasa this past Thursday night to a packed house.

The band's current tour is aimed at promoting their 2014 album, Berkeley to Bakersfield album.  The double album serves as a blueprint of sorts, for which the band's current sound is based --one disc is a straight up rock album, while the other is more alternative-country.

As expected, the set concentrated on the band's latest tracks, dappled with some of their older tunes. Generally speaking, the audience did not appear to have a preference between the new and older material. A few glaring exceptions, however, occurred when the band played three older  hits “Low,” “Teen Angst” and “Get Off This,” all of which the crowd received enthusiastically. Finally, in true rock band style, the band left the stage only to return a few minutes later to push through a two song encore. View an extended gallery here.
