Cupcakes are back! In case you're unfamiliar, Cupcakes (Preston Graves, Greg Soran, Sol Snyder, Matt Walker) were the proverbial "next big thing" out of Chicago in 2000 when their eponymous album came out. The band imploded before they ever had a real shot, and most of the members moved on to higher-profile gigs (American Idol, Morrissey, Bryan Adams, B-52's). Singer Preston Graves joins me mere days before the band does their reunion show, headlining Metro on 2/29. So why are they getting back together after all this time, and what exactly happened back then?
Fueling this week's chat is delicious food from north side staple Cafe El Tapatio (3400 N. Ashland). Thanks to the team there for providing the eats... go visit them and check it out for yourself!
Discussed this week:
