Cake graced the stage on Day 2 of The Toronto Urban Roots Festival. They're a classic of alternative rock music, originating in the 90s, that put on a very fun performance. Singer John McCrae was battling bronchitis but it sure didn't show. They put on a fan-pleasing set that eased us quite nicely into the evening.

They started off strong with a one-two punch of "Love You Madly" and " Sheep Go to Heaven". I never realized until during the latter song just how much fun it would be to sing along with those quirky lyrics.

"The grave digger puts on the forceps
The stonemason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch

Now, I just want to play on my panpipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as you're born, you start dying
So you might as well have a good time 

Sheep go to Heaven
Goats go to Hell"

I was off shooting St. Paul and the Broken Bones, so I didn't witness it, but I heard that Choir! Choir! Choir! joined the band for their rendition of "Short Skirt Long Jacket". That had to be cool!
