On this week’s Food Is The New Rock podcast Zach Brooks is joined by Linkin Park producer and turntable master Joe Hahn (also known as Mr. Hahn to his fans and car service drivers). The lively conversation tackles all sorts of topics like Joe's eating adventures on the road and Oliver Stone’s frozen yogurt habits. How are these related? You'll have to listen.

Big Gigantic Eats Brussels Sprouts, Skips The Kangaroo

But Boulder's electro-jazz duo prefers pizza. Lots.
Feb 18, 2014 3:00 pm

My first call to Jeremy Salken of Boulder, CO electro-funk band Big Gigantic ended in phone tag while I listened to his outgoing voicemail message, a full minute of confused grandpa assuring you it's all going to be okay. Then he laughed at me for listening to the whole thing. Then we dove right into the most specific request I've ever heard on a tour rider.

JES Unleashes The Beet, Spins A Crab Cake

Globetrotting DJ creates a fitter, healthier tour
Jan 16, 2014 4:00 pm

The secret weapon to world-traveling DJ JES' longevity: mastery of healthy living habits in a world famous for no sleep, tons of booze, etc. and 3 a.m. pizza. Not that 3 a.m. pizza is totally out of the question. Depriving a New Yorker of pizza is about as unhealthy as it gets. Plus, she made Vibe's top 10 female DJs of 2013, motivated us to get more sleep and loaned us an awesome recipe for healthy crab cakes. Thanks, JES!

Caveman Redesigns The Paleo Diet To Include More Grass-Fed Dino

Plus this one time with Wayne Newton's garlic bread
Oct 16, 2013 3:00 pm

As it turns out, Caveman has nothing to do with the recent Paleo trend. Could have fooled me! Kidding, I met up with the 5-man band, born and bred in NYC, at a pizza spot to get schooled on the actual diets of musicians on the road. What are these classy musicians eating? How did keyboardist Sam terrorize poor Wayne Newton with garlic bread? Where should I go for dinner tomorrow night, guys? 

Give Datsik All Your Bacon And He'll Play Harder

Rising star DJ talks pig candy, tequila, tacos
Sep 9, 2013 2:00 pm

I love the smell of bacon frying to dubstep in the morning, as does Troy Beetles, better known on-stage as Datsik. The young Canadian native who calls LA's Los Feliz neighborhood home (citing "tacos" and "the party") has been churning out remixes, performing globally at clubs and festivals, and building up an enormous following since 2008.

Good Food, Rocks: 5 Sandwiches Invented By The Bands We're Listening To

Boy howdy, do bands love talking about sandwiches!
Aug 26, 2013 11:00 am

Food Republic's Good Food, Rocks series takes you inside the life of hungry musicians on the run (or on the stay — we look in their fridges all the time). They travel, they eat, they have great stories, and I personally always ask this question at the end of the interview: "You just invented a sandwich called (name of latest album or single). What's in it?"

Here's How Brooklyn Band Small Black Swaps Chillwave For Grillwave

And we give their culinary skills a 10.0
Aug 21, 2013 3:00 pm

What's grillwave, you ask? It's a style of guerilla cooking invented by rockers on tour when folks throw the term chillwave around a little too casually. Yeah, Small Black is of the chillwave genre. They're also indie pop, emo-rock, electronic and somehow simultaneously post-chillwave (cause nobody's just chillwave anymore). We sat down for some smoked meat to see what's going on with this fast-rising band, besides a namesake craft beer.

Matt Roberts Plays Bass In The Mantles, Slings Croissants At Tartine

And, he reveals the Bay Area spot's secret dessert!
Jul 3, 2013 10:02 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. 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. Next up, Matt Roberts from emerging Bay Area band the Mantles.
