Camper Van Beethoven will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special show at the Troubadour in West Hollywood tonight, July 20th, 2013. After returning from their successful tour of Europe, Camper Van Beethoven plots additional U.S. Dates (with and without Cracker) in further support of their recent album "La Costa Perdida".

Also led by Camper Van Beethoven's frontman David Lowery, Cracker will be joining a number of CVB's summer U.S dates, along with a string of their own shows. Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Johnny Hickman have been at it for over 20 years now - amassing nine studio albums (their most recent, 2009's critically acclaimed Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey), multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs ("Low," "Euro-Trash Girl" and "Get Off This" to name just a few) that are still in current radio rotation around the globe, and a worldwide fan base - that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry - continues to grow each year. Along with longtime drummer Frank Funaro (since 1998's Gentleman's Blues) and bassistSal Maida (since 2006's Greenland), this uniquely American band has no intentions of slowing down.
