Continued from the past week. I'll try to do better to post more regularly this week, so as to not overload you. Or to eat more boring food that doesn't need to be photographed.
Adzuki bean, Japanese yam, and cabbage bowl. Such a perfect balance of flavors and combination of texture. AS USUAL.
Guess who's in town?? Jenny from Vegan and So Forth! She was here for a brief trip with one of her beautiful daughters. We had plans to meet up at Dunwell Donuts, but the subways wanted something else. In any case, I got there just before they closed and bought 6 donuts for us. I forgot to take any photos as I was eating, but here are two I took home with me:
It was actually a good thing I got there so late; I didn't have to choose from a million flavors. Keeps things simple.
Later that night I went to a Don Giovanni record label show and had an awesome time. Love pretty much every band on that label. If you get a chance to hear any of these guys, please check them out. Especially Downtown Boys.
Worriers: a "melodic punk collective." I'd heard a lot of good stuff about them, but this was the first time hearing the music. Real nice. Bonus: Audrey from Little Waist (another awesome queer pop punk band from Brooklyn) playing bass that night.
Pinkwash! This was my first time hearing about them. They're a punk post-hardcore duo. Just drums and guitar, based in Philly. Blew me the fuck away, even though I wanted not to like them since I thought Downtown Boys were about to play instead and since they took so long to set up with equipment issues. But SO GOOD.
Downtown Boys, who I love and have seen about 3 or 4 times now. They have so much powerful energy. A "bi, bi-lingual political dance sax punk party from Providence, RI." They always get into the crowd and really get everyone moving. The drummer crowd surfs on top of the drum and dives off into people. What more can you ask for?
So yeah, punk music and vegan food = winwinwinwinwinwin. I also ran into Kirsten at the show, the vegan punk friend I met back at another concert over the summer three days before she moves to Colorado! What a magical punk world this is.
