Bo & the Locomotive's Bo Bulawsky, who will be performing as Cake this year, is a huge fan of the band he's tackling, as are his bandmates. The group is looking forward to performing music that is often, as they say, underappreciated.
"They are true early-indie-rock-country pioneers, but they often aren't seen that way," Bulawsky says. "I think if people watch a band that isn't Cake playing all Cake songs, it will highlight the fact that they are an actual great band."
