Music: Cake

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 8 p.m. 2011

Following a hiatus in new material, Cake - best remembered for '90s-era alt hits, like "The Distance" - independently released its Showroom of Compassion album early this year. The disc, a long-awaited follow-up to 2004's Pressure Chief, was praised for not straying from the band's original sounds. You never know, after all those years. "Sick of You," its first single off the album, is about the vicious cycle of hate. Folks can show some love for Cake during their upcoming performance at 106.5 The END'S Not So Acoustic Xmas at Amos' Southend.
