    For the record: Although I too have been a Cracker fan for 20 years and also attended the Spin-Gin-Cracker concert, the opinion expressed below by "Bill from World Café Phila" is not mine.

    Dude Sacramento, CA -> Cambridge, MA

    Flew into Boston just to catch the CVB/Cracker shows in Cambridge last Friday night and thought they were fantastic. Have to laugh - flying 3000 miles to see a couple of Cali bands in New England, but def. a treat and a good excuse to get out of Dodge - er Sacto. Been a fan since my NorCal college roommates started playing Camper in 1987, but I love that both bands have made a lot of California-themed music recently as I can naturally identify with it. I mean I've lived in El Cerrito for heaven's sake! Who in their right mind writes a song about El Cerrito? So I naturally like a lot of the new material, and know the dueling personalities of country/big city embodied especially by Cracker's new CD, and loved hearing those songs performed. When I was a kid in SoCal my dad always played country music, so that's where I come from. Then as a pre-teen I discovered rock music and that's where I went. So the mix of these sounds resonates with me and always has. It was great to see that mixture up on stage, with David making jokes about singing protest songs dressed in Sperry, while Johnny was jamming rock/country stylings on Lucky #7, his neon-graffitti covered black Gibson. David is front and center but I think the best part for me was seeing how much fun Johnny was having up there, and with the new material he has a few more numbers on which he can sing lead. So all-in-all a fantastic show! And yes it was great to see some of the guys mingling afterwards. So why did I do it? Got the new Cracker double-CD for Xmas and just love it, so had to see where they were playing. I was in the Midwest while they were on their Northern-Cali tour so what else could I do? lol Besides it had been 2 years since I had seen CVB in Davis at the Odd Fellows. So I checked the balance on my frequent-flyer miles, and grabbed a room for less than $100 a night at the La Meridien just a block from the Middle East Club. Had some time to walk around Boston, bought some CDs and a hoody, and saw two great shows. Fantastic!! (By the way this is a Cracker forum, so my comments are mostly about them, but I also loved the CVB set. Only complaint was that the mix on Greg Lisher's guitar was way too hot. He sounded great but the vocals were drowned and you couldn't hear much else when he really stated jamming. Big relief that the Cracker sound mix was much better.)

    Attended Philly with an old friend and we found David, Johnny and the rest of that wrecking crew all in fine form - although this messenger happens to be another one of those old cranky Cracker superfans. We really enjoyed the show and drinking at the bar - an evening of gentlemen's blues and great tunes. Well done. Watch out. Watch out.

    I was sadden to say after 20 years of being a Cracker fan and even seeing the Spin-Gin-Cracker concert, the show this past Sat was sub-par at best. I'm a Cracker fan and not a CVB. I see that now...

    Comments on Friday show in Cambridge. As usual, the show was great. All the new material on the set list makes for fewer greatest hits, but I've been playing and loving the new stuff enough that it was a non issue. Just wanted to mention how accommodating and friendly Victor and Johnny were to chat after the show. One of the things that I love about being a Cracker fan is that you have people who make amazing music who are also humble and down to earth. They appreciate support from a loyal fan base and take time to share stories. I appreciate that connection and part of the Cracker/Camper Van experience too. I've seen all the big bands but still haven't had the opportunity to chat with Bono or Mick. Our Canadian Crumbs contingent look forward to our next show somewhere down the road. Cosmo, Didn't catch you at the show but hope you had a good time. Thanks for helping us out with the tickets.

    Philly was super great. Started one song at encore, but it was cut short and One Fine Day played instead. Not sure what (maybe Loser) was aborted. First post here in probably 8 years or so. I think my last post was "play Harrisburg" and they did (and came back a few times). So, play Harrisburg.

    Sunday night's New York show was awesome. The Cracker-related highlight was the encore, where Kenny and his accordion joined David and Johnny for "Dr. Bernice" and "Been Around The World." Gene and Rosemary, I had the pleasure of meeting John and Brenda as well. Also great to talk with several current and former band members after the show. By the time we emerged, the rain had even stopped. One fine day indeed.
