Indie band does oysters at Peche, frozen daquiris
Nov 25, 2014 1:00 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.

New Orleans indie rockers fry up the jams

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

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 9:00 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.

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. Tortas on the California-Mexico border. 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.

KISS: Rock & Roll All Night, Open a Chain Restaurant Every Day

We hit KC to hang with Gene and Paul, eat rock food
Jun 4, 2014 10:00 am

There are questions in life that always require you to say yes. “Do you want fries with that?” Yes. “Would you prefer to be seated far away from the mariachi band?” Yes. “Do you want to go to Kansas City with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS as they open up a new location of their chain restaurant Rock & Brews?” YES. Here's what it's like to break, uh...BBQ chicken flatbread with the KISS guys.

Great Good Fine Ok Is A Brooklyn Band With A Sandwich Plan

Their sexy music video, tuna salad, Craigslist fail
May 22, 2014 12:00 pm

I posted the video for synth-pop band Great Good Fine Ok's "You're The One For Me" a few weeks ago. Then their manager hit me up for a food chat which was great, because I actually did have a bunch of questions about that video, so we met up at Dale Talde's roadhouse bar-inspired Pork Slope for beers and inimitable porky melt sandwiches to discuss other inimitable sandwiches. There's no such thing as "too much tuna."
