Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven will cohost their 7th annual Campout music festival next month.
Campout will take place September 15th, 16th and 17th at Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace in the High Desert of Southern California.
The locale of this fest ties in perfectly with Cracker's own history as their signature album Kerosene Hat was recorded here back in 1993 in the now-closed movie soundstage next to the Palace.
Previous Campout's have hosted a broad range of indie, alternative, blues and country acts and this year's bill features the talents of Heavy Cream, He's My Brother She's My Sister, The Calamity and Gram Rabbit's The Country. Along with full band performances from both Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven (performing their respective signature albums Kerosene Hat & Key Lime Pie in their entireties), there will also be a number of performances from various members of both bands, including Jonathan Segel, The Hickmen, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Johnny Hickman's pre-Cracker band The Dangers and a special David Lowery/Johnny Hickman semi-acoustic duo set.
Bandmembers from both Cracker & CVB are currently available for interviews.
