Cake at Masonic Auditorium

A sold out crowd graced Cleveland’s Masonic Auditorium for Cake last night — the venue is one of the oldest, best kept secrets in Cleveland. People of all age started lining up outside for the show more than an hour before the doors opened, and by 7 p.m. there was already a line stretched down the block.

The band played a great show overall, opening with a Willie Nelson cover “Sad Songs and Waltzes” followed by “Opera Singer,” and “Frank Sinatra.” A couple in the front row mentioned their first Cake show was at the Agora many years ago, and at least one fan drove all the way from Bowling Green in the hopes of getting an extra ticket outside (which she did).

The band will continue their run of sold out shows tonight in Detroit, Thursday in Cincinnati, and Friday in Buffalo, NY. — Frank Lanza
