FOLSOM — Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, is honored to have the “deadpan brilliance” of Cake in the house for two shows, Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1.

The excitement is mutual.

“What an honor to perform in this gorgeous state-of-the-art facility for a hometown show,” said Cake’s Vince DiFiore.

“It will be a very nostalgic evening for Cake, and an honor to return to play music for the people who helped launched our career,” bandmate Gabriel Nelson said.

Cake started as a local band in Sacramento in the early 1990s with its first radio hit “Rock ‘N’ Roll Lifestyle” and followed the earliest success with classics such as “The Distance,” “Never There,” “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” and “Sick of You.”

“We will present songs from the Cake catalog as a five piece that has created a strong musical chemistry together,” DiFiore said.

The band recorded seven albums in all, including the No. 1 hit “Showroom of Compassion” that was recorded in its own solar-powered studio in Sacramento.

As they approach the group’s 20th anniversary, Cake’s adherence to its original guiding principles has only grown stronger.

Formed in the early ’90s as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, Cake’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school.

“There are quite a few different kinds of talent in this band,” said founding member John McCrea, “so our creative process has become even more democratic, with the band playing a much larger role in production decisions.”

By maintaining ideals and continuing to challenge themselves artistically and professionally, the band members have managed to not only survive, but to thrive.

“We still exist,” explained McCrea, “because we’ve always stayed outside of current trends. We’ve watched them inflate and deflate. We’ve never been invited to the party, so we’ve never had to leave the party whether the police arrived or not. It’s a sad and beautiful world.”

Showtimes for Cake begin at 8 p.m. each day. Tickets are $29 to $39 with premium tickets  available for $49. Tickets may be purchased atthreestages.net or from Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time.
