The Sea and Cake -Sam Prekop
There was a diverse crowd for this show, and I realized The Sea and Cake has been together for awhile now, 20 years, and I see a wide variety of age groups that come to like this pop/rock band hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Their sound is unique and constructed in a very modern-jazzy type way.
The band was on hiatus from 2004 to 2007, returning with Everybody. Their 8th Studio Album, Car Alarm, was released in October 2008. Their most recent Studio Album,”The Moonlight Butterfly” was released on May 10, 2011.
Contrary to his multi-instrumentalist role in Tortoise, John McEntire essentially plays only drums in The Sea and Cake.Members Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt each have released solo albums. Sam Prekop has worked with Broken Social Scene with their latest record ‘Forgiveness Rock Record’. They started off their set with new songs from the album, “The Moonlight Butterfly”.
