(ITHACA, NY and COOPERSTOWN, NY) DSP Shows and Brewery Ommegang are proud to announce that alternative rock band CAKE will perform at the brewery in Cooperstown, NY on Friday, May 26 at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, February 17 at 10:00 am via DSP Shows.

As they approach their twentieth anniversary, CAKE's LUCID yet ever-inventive music has left them with no obvious peers. The Band's most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was touted as "deadpan brilliance" by the New Yorker. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, CAKE have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio. The Band is currently in the recording studio working on their ninth album due for release in 2017. CAKE last played at Brewery Ommegang five years ago, in June 2012, during the brewery's second annual summer concert series.

"We are excited to bring CAKE back to the brewery in May," says DSP President Dan Smalls. "The Band is unparalleled, a great start to Memorial Day Weekend in Cooperstown."

Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the gate. Families are welcome for this all-ages show, and children ages five and under do not require a ticket. Camping passes are available on a first come, first served basis for the first 1000 people to purchase a ticket. Camping is an additional $15 per person and available only through DSP Shows' website. If camping does not sell out online ahead of the show, passes will be available at the gate for $20 per person.

About CAKE

As they approach their twentieth anniversary, CAKE's adherence to their original guiding principles has only grown stronger. Formed during the nineties as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE's democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and LUCID yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building's electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE's most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was touted as "deadpan brilliance" by the New Yorker. The Band is currently in the recording studio working on their ninth album due for release in 2017.
