Granola Haulin’ Oats Sued By Who You’d Think

Rockers already hold trademark on the name
Mar 6, 2015 11:45 am

Granola producers, take heed: Its wise to resist the urge to make puns that reference famous musical duo Hall & Oates. If you do, you might just find yourself served with a hefty lawsuit.

5 Seriously Legit Brewery And Musician Collaborations

Against Me!, the Hold Steady are in the beer game
Feb 4, 2015 12:00 pm

Every time a brewery releases a beer made in conjunction with its favorite band, it’s hard not to feel skeptical. Yet when challenged to dig into the subject, I was impressed by the wide and impressive swath of non-gimmicky alliances that surfaced. Turns out, it’s not just Hanson’s MMMhops Pale Ale vying for our attention and hard-earned cash. There are actually a handful of great beers out there made by bands and brewers.

Deerhoof Needs 10 To 15 Carrot Sticks, Cool?

Albuquerque eats, travel tips, better spaghetti
Jan 28, 2015 12:00 pm

There are moments in indie punk band Deerhoof's long-spanning discography in which a song sounds like it’s completely fallen apart, with scattered piano notes and odd sounds, only to launch back in with an impeccably catchy, poppy tune. Singer Satomi Matsuzaki's high-pitched, singsong voice is an entirely distinctive and refreshing experience for anyone seeking something a little different from your typical indie-pop structure. There can be no mistake when you are listening to a Deerhoof song; you know you’re listening to a Deerhoof song! I spoke with guitarist John Dieterich about his adopted hometown of Albuquerque, where chile is a way of life and "bandwiches" are made with homemade tortillas. 

We're Totally Going To BottleRock Napa Valley In May! You?

The vino's superb. The music lineup? Even better.
Jan 6, 2015 4:30 pm

We'd abandon FR Headquarters to go see any combination of the headliners slated for this year's BottleRock Napa Valley, May 29-31. Think non-stop tunes from bands, the best food and booze we've likely ever consumed a great deal of at a music festival (no offense to to the lobster roll truck sitting there in 90-degree heat) and just...SO MUCH WINE. And No Doubt. And Snoop Dog. We'll have whatever Robert Plant is drinking, frankly. 

Generationals Gets Nostalgic For Grits And Grillades, Vietnamese Bakeries

Indie band does oysters at Peche, frozen daquiris
Nov 25, 2014 2:00 pm

If you haven't heard the old-school indie goodness that is Generationals, there's no time like the present. I spoke with guitarist Ted Joyner, New Orleans native about Vietnamese food, frozen Brain Obliterators and G&G. That's grits and grillades, something you'll want to become intimately familiar with. You'll also want to see this sandwich they made to accompany their latest single.

Rock Band Generationals Created A Fried Fish Sandwich Inspired By Their New Single

New Orleans indie rockers fry up the jams
Nov 24, 2014 3:30 pm

Talk about a band who takes interviews seriously. I spoke with Ted Joyner of New Orleans-based indie rock band Generationals about all things Cajun, oyster, pho and especially sandwiches. Best of all, the band's food-obsessed drummer, Eric Rogers, invented a killer sandwich named after their latest single, Gold Silver Diamond. Crunch into the fish sandwich of your dreams, right here. 

Vietnamese Food Fan Wayne Coyne On How French Fries Are Like John Lennon

Flaming Lips frontman has a Long John Silver's past
Nov 3, 2014 10:00 am

Touring musicians have a great gig. Rock and roll! It’s doubly great when they’re interested in exploring the international culinary world. We do realize some bands subsist solely on Taco Bell and Coke Zero. Shame on them! There’s Hatch chile to sample in New Mexico. Pappy Van Winkle in Kentucky. Doppelbock outside Hamburg. In Good Food, Rocks, we track down a band member serious about their grub — and who has held a job in the food industry too. Up next, Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips.

Escort Frontman Eugene Cho Makes Sous-Vide Salmon Like It's His Job

Nu-disco band also hits Austin for BBQ beef ribs
Jul 15, 2014 10:00 am

Half a century after disco erupted from its jazz roots in a thunderous cloud of glitter, Escort frontman Eugene Cho brings a band of 16 (sometimes more, sometimes less) around the world to remind you without a shadow of doubt exactly why you're still dancing so hard. There's more. He cooks from Modernist Cuisine. You want him to make you sous-vide salmon, preferably with disco blasting in the background so loud you can't hear the electric spice grinder.
