To-Do 

CRACKER
8:30 p.m., Revolution. $15.

Muddling up blues, grunge, folk and punk, Cracker remains one of the mainstays of '90s alternative rock, traversing past its fallen, flannelled comrades and still recording and releasing albums with surprising regularity. Even though the band's found itself gracefully growing old, the dudes haven't traded in or watered down their signature snark and everyday irony that put them on the map with early '90s hits like “Low” or “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now).” In fact, judging from the positive reviews thrown towards Cracker's newest album, its 13th, the band's wry poppiness and sharp hooks may stick around for a while. The Californians will get a taste of Arkansas rock that doesn't quit from opener Jim Mize.
