Renowned rock band Cracker will be performing a local Falls Church show at The State Theatre on Thu. July 16th in support of their recent acclaimed double-album “Berkeley to Bakersfield.”

Cracker’s Berkeley (Disc 1) album features the harder-edge rock sounds of the Bay area that has informed their music since their inception in the early ’90s, while the Bakersfield disc showcases their nearly 25-year love affair with Country & Roots music of the southern California region. And while both of these genres have been incorporated together to varying degrees on all nine of their previous albums, this is first time they been compartmentalized on their own respective albums – one rock LP and one country LP.
