Cake gives peach tree to lucky audience member
Last night, Austin’s 360 Amphitheater had a stacked music lineup: Tall Heights, Ben Folds, and CAKE. Boston’s Tall Heights, kicked off the night. They brought energy, emotion, and so much talent. Their dreamy high pitched harmonies and electro-folk vibes had the audience fully captivated throughout their set.
Ben Fold’s entered the stage with confidence and a contagious happiness and excitement. The talented and well-known pianist started off his set solo. But was quickly joined by his band, which includes members from Tall Heights. Ben’s excellent falsetto vibrated out on the crowd with purpose. Purpose that had his band locked into his musical expression and a crowd that was taken on a Ben Folds ride. To end the set he conducted a crowd voice exercise which was the perfect end to a beautiful performance.
Cake closed out the night. The band’s set consisted mainly of songs off their recent albums. They had the audience on their toes patiently awaiting some of their older hits. The final song of the night was the popular hit, “Never There”, which was the dance party the audience was hoping for! John McCrea, lead singer, engaged with the audience quit a bit during their set. He brought a peach tree as part of their stage set up and ended up giving it to a lucky audience member who was encouraged to grow the plant and share photos with the Cake community via their website.
