Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker at The Granada Theater, July 27: Review

Seeing both Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker on the same bill was a perplexing experience. On the one hand, it was two of my favorite bands, each one responsible for a (different) decade's worth of quality alternative rock. On the other hand, since David Lowery fronts both bands, the show had the feel of a musical autobiography; a Broadway production entitled the David Lowery Experience.

But such certainly didn't distract from the value of the music. Or did it?
