Calendar Pick: Cracker Camp-In

For nine years, Athens has hosted the Cracker Camp-In, a music festival of sorts celebrating the band Cracker and its various related acts. Cracker released its debut album in 1992, and for more than 30 years it has been exciting fans with its alternative rock anthems sprinkled with gravelly country roots. This year’s camp-in kicks off on Thursday with a “song swap in the round” featuring David Lowery, Johnny Hickman and Jim Dalton. Cracker will perform with songwriters Thayer Sarrano and Kimberly Morgan York on Friday, and it will then return on Saturday to play with the Hackensaw Boys.

WHERE: 40 Watt Club
WHEN: Mar. 9–11, 7 p.m.
