Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven

When: Wed., Dec. 28, 9 p.m. 2011

In what's become an annual tradition, David Lowery has decided to lead yet another Cracker/CVB post-holiday California Tour. First with the stylistically quirky Camper Van Beethoven, and later with the more straightforward but no less intriguing Cracker, Lowery has always existed on the margins of the mainstream, with occasional bouts of commercial success allowing his bands to continue touring and recording. The evening's set lists will reflect the amount of plate-spinning Lowery has engaged in since CVB played its first show back in 1983. Not only can attendees expect to hear Eighties alt-rock gems ("Take the Skinheads Bowling," "Where the Hell is Bill") and twangier latter-day radio hits ("Get Off This," "Euro-Trash Girl"), but Lowery will also be trotting out CVB's first batch of new material in seven years. With eclecticism as the guiding factor for this evening's festivities, these musical anarchists will put their creative bomb-throwing into action on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at The Independent(628 Divisadero St., San Francisco). 9 p.m., $25, $27.
