Cake will perform live at Middlebury College's Kenyon Arena on Saturday, April 19. Doors open at 8 p.m. There will be an opening band, to be announced. Advance ticket prices are $10 for students, $15 for faculty and staff, and $20 for the general public. All ticket prices will go up by $10 at the door.

Although Cake's music is often classified as alternative or indie rock, it combines multiple musical genres, such as funk, ska, pop, jazz, rap, and country. Cake's music features droll lyrics filled with word play and syncopation (in a rap-like style by lead vocalist/guitarist John McCrea), catchy distorted guitar riffs, and a solo trumpet. Cake's approach to arrangement, composition, and instrumentation has been compared to Soul Coughing, They Might Be Giants, Talking Heads, The Cars, Camper Van Beethoven and Lou Reed.
