ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — David Lowery has had quite a week. Not only has the leader of alternative rock band Cracker been planning a tour, he’s been dealing with the rigors of back to school.
Lowery teaches a music business college course at University of Georgia in Athens, Ga.
“There are like 35,000 students and there was a computer glitch with my building,” he says during a recent phone interview. “We’ve come a long ways with technology, but nobody can really plan for it. But it’s fixed now, and all is good.”
Lowery is finding that teaching and touring works out well for him. He teaches his class Tuesdays through Thursdays.
“This gives me time for weekend tours,” he says. “And during the summer I have off, which is when we get the majority of the touring done.”
Lowery and Cracker are currently on the last leg of the tour for the double disc album, “Berkeley to Bakersfield,” which was released in 2014.
