Taking place Presidents Weekend, Cracker will go live at 6 p.m. in Gondola Plaza. Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years—alternative-rock, Americana, insurgent-country and even explained with the terms punk and classic-rock, but more than anything they are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that still play on the radio around the globe and a worldwide fan base,  that despite the major sea of changes within the music industry, continues to grow each year.
