Now the amalgamation of Cracker (frontman David Lowery was in CVB) and the three former Campers is heading east.

The Traveling Apothecary Show will be a revue-style tour, with sets by former CVB’ers Krummenacher, Lisher and Segel, plus Cracker. Sets will feature Cracker and CVB material, as well as songs from various solo projects.

The outing kicks off September 14 at the Trocadero in Philadelphia and includes stops in Washington, D.C.; Richmond, Va.; Carrboro, N.C.; Knoxville and Chattanooga, Tenn.; Athens, Ga., and Huntsville, Ala.

Lowery insists that despite the almost familial relationship between the two bands, The Traveling Apothecary Show won’t resurrect Camper Van Beethoven (the band split up in 1990).

“This is not a Camper Van Beethoven reunion. It also isn’t exactly a Cracker show,” Lowery said. “Anyone who expects us to stick closely to the recorded versions of all the songs may be disappointed.”

The show is split into two sets, the first featuring Krummenacher, Lisher and Segal performing their solo material, and the second comprising about 2/3 Cracker and 1/3 Camper Van Beethoven songs.

“The lineage of many of the songs, especially the covers, is so mixed I’m sure some hard-core fan out there will dispute this,” Lowery said of the shared set.

Cracker has been touring all year in support of Garage D’Or, its 10-year anniversary retrospective. An oddities/live collection, Camper Van Beethoven Is Dead, Long Live Camper Van Beethoven, was also released this year.
