What was the food highlight of your year?
Eating the bone marrow at RN74.
What was the music highlight of your year?
Bob Mould playing Copper blue at Bottom of the Hill during Noise Pop.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
Noisette was amazing. Watching Ian Marks from the Beast and the Hare butcher half a pig was pretty cool. Eating what he did with the meat was better.
When I was shooting Bob Mould and his band for their Silver Age promos we walked past Olivier’s Butchery in Dogpatch. Bob says “Oh. Is this a butcher?” I confirmed that it was indeed and he proceeded to go inside and buy three or four amazing looking steaks. I’m sitting there thinking to myself “Oh my god, I’m watching Bob Mould buy steaks!”
