Beyond Hunger’s largest fundraising event of the year is back and bigger than ever on November 23rd as the renowned band CAKE takes the stage at an exciting new venue, The Salt Shed (1357 N Elston Ave. Chicago) performing in support of providing food assistance and ending hunger. Proceeds from the concert will  directly support Beyond Hunger’s hunger-relief programs, which are projected to serve 62,000 individuals and families throughout Chicago’s Westside and surrounding suburbs.

Last year’s concert raised enough funds to provide 600,000 meals! 3300 guests are expected to attend this one-of-a-kind, unforgettable concert from the acclaimed rock band CAKE. 

Tickets start at $78 and go on sale Friday, July 26th at 10 AM. 

Hailing from Sacramento, the California-based band continues to maintain a wealth of originality. CAKE's adherence to their earliest guiding principles has only grown stronger over the years. Originally formed as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no evident peers in sound or perspective. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their Sacramento-based solar-powered studio, which regularly generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building’s electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE’s most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was touted as “deadpan brilliance” by The New Yorker Magazine. While seamlessly blending multiple genres and influences, CAKE truly issues forth a sound and vision unlike any other band. The band is currently at work on their ninth album due for release during early 2025.  Additionally, there will be a limited edition “Live from Folsom” album issued during autumn 2024.
