Free MP3 from David Lowery + Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven Full Album Performances

Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven have announced the 7th annual Campout Music Festival happening September 15th-17th in Pioneertown, California.

As if you needed any added incentive to make the trip, they'll both be highlighting key moments from their catalog, with CVB performing 'Key Lime Pie' in its entirety while Cracker will revisit the whole 'Kerosene Hat' album. It's not exactly a new event for either band, but when you add camping into the whole experience, it does add a new dimension to things...because who doesn't love to camp?

The fest is located at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace in the High Desert of Southern California. The location 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.

If camping isn't your bag, there are additional opportunities to get in on the full album performance fun at upcoming Cracker/CVB dates in Los Angeles and Scottsdale, Arizona.

To celebrate all of the above goodness, Cracker's David Lowery shared an outtake from his recent solo disc 'The Palace Guards.' The tune is called 'Cages' and you can download it for free here.
