The inaugural Hot Luck food and music festival, co-founded by Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue and James Moody of the Mohawk, is set to go down May 18-21 at venues around town. Festival organizers announced music programming, a cluster of club shows featuring the Black Lips, Shonen Knife and more, last month.
Today, they announced “Show Snacks,” chef-created small bites that will accompany each show. Highlights include “Thurston S’mores” by Aaron Franklin and Rebecca Masson of Fluff Bake Bar (Houston) that will accompany Thurston Moore’s Mohawk show on Wednesday, May 17, the previously announced mash-up of Japanese pop-punk from Shonen Knife and Japanese fare from Austin chef Yoshi Okai at Barracuda on Friday, May 19 and the chance to honky tonk it up with Rayland Baxter, Jonathan Terrell and Carson McHone at The White Horse while swilling cold brew ice cream floats from Stumptown Coffee Roasters that same night.
Black Joe Lewis, with openers Bad Lovers and Payton Andrew Green, will pair up with Valentina’s Tex Mex at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 20 at Barracuda and Robert Ellis closes out the fest’s music program on Saturday, May 20 at The White Horse with Harvest Thieves and Altamesa and ice cream sandwiches from Tillamook (Oregon).
