DJ Steve Aoki: To Cake Or Not To Cake

Party music's new trend is fluffy, frosted, awesome
Aug 11, 2014 4:00 pm

VICE's recent profile of EDM legend Steve Aoki revealed a penchant for baked goods, cakes in particular. Not eating them — launching them into a crowd of frenzied dancing fans in the name of a good party. Not that he needs a reason...but why does he do it and who else from the dance world is on the cake train? 

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.

Fitz & The Tantrums' Noelle Scaggs Knows A Lot Of Good Pasta Recipes

Indie rocker has a shrimp and grits secret, too
Jun 18, 2014 11:00 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. 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.

The Glitch Mob Fries Up Son Of A Gun Shrimp Toast, Drinks Good French Rosé

LA electronic group dishes on nacho throwdowns, too
Jun 10, 2014 11:00 am

The Glitch Mob, one of Los Angeles' most widely danced-to electronic groups is edIT (Edward Ma), Boreta (Justin Boreta) and Ooah (Josh Mayer). Beyond playing shows and festivals around the world, they're also very in tune with what everyone's eating, on tour and in "regular life." So, where should you eat in LA? Take these guys' advice.

Bleachers Reveals New Album Art Via Birthday Cake Delivery

Jack Antonoff's solo project kicks off with dessert
Jun 6, 2014 4:00 pm

Jack Antonoff's new solo venture, Bleachers, is an indie pop fan's dream come true. To stay creative during the album release process (Bleachers' Strange Desire goes live next month) Antonoff devised a better way to connect with his fans — a lucky handful got birthday cakes sporting the first view of Bleachers' album art. I talked to Antonoff to see why he didn't get any cake but DID get a bunch of seaweed. I also needed some advice.

Pink Mountaintops Know A Thing Or Two About LA Tacos

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, Stephen McBean, the man behind The Pink Mountaintops.

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

Their sexy music video, tuna salad, Craigslist fail
May 22, 2014 1:00 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."

Obviously David Chang And Stephen Malkmus Are In The Same Fantasy Hoops League

Pavement frontman gets around the food world
May 15, 2014 2:00 pm

In the new Food Is The New Rock podcast, we learn a few things about Stephen Malkmus (of Pavement and an incredible 14+ year solo-ish career) including that he’s not a big Chris Bosh fan (co-sign) and that it’s “sad” what has happened to Greg Oden. Also, a lot about his interaction with chefs David Chang and Andy Ricker.
