Organizers of Hot Luck Festival, the new food and music festival helmed by Aaron Franklin of Franklin BBQ and James Moody of the Mohawk, announced the event’s music program today. Featured artists for the fest, which takes place May 18-21, include the Black Lips, Black Joe Lewis, Robert Ellis, Rayland Baxter and Shonen Knife. There’s also a show by Thurston Moore at the Mohawk on Wednesday, May 17, that is billed as part of the fest.
Shows will take place at the Mohawk, the White Horse and Barracuda. Organizers say the Barracuda events will include a food component. On Friday, May 19, sushi chef Yoshi Okai of Otoko, who was recently named one of Food & Wine Magazine’s best new Chefs in America, “will serve Japanese fare as fans rock out to Japanese pop-punk band Shonen Knife.”
Tickets to all shows will be sold individually and are on sale now.
Organizers also added several new chefs and a brunch series to the festival lineup today.
