Time Out New York has an article exploring the newly fertile intersect of indie rock and food, pulling quotes from indie-foodie expert Kara Zuaro (author of rocker recipe book I Like Food, Food Tastes Good), Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste, and winetaster-by-day Justin Chearno of Panthers.

Along with arguing that enjoying music can be like having great food or wine (Editor’s Note: or sex) — and in addition to I Like Food, Food Is Good — the piece points to Alex Kapranos’s tour-fed food diary Sound Bites and indie rock cooking show Dinner With The Band to prove, once and for all, that musicians like food. See, they’re just like you!

More about you, then: Who do you listen to while eating? Specify the meal, too; you can dine to Jeff Mangum anytime, but like Slayer with breakfast is just creepy.

BONUS: Learn to make Grizzly Bear pecan pie!

  1. I grew up in San Antonio Texas where Mexican Food and Metal reign supream. It’s not something that I’m necessarily proud of, but I’m not in denial about it either.

    Having said that, Metallica’s “And Justice For All” album combined with a pair of Puffy Tacos or even a simple ‘bean and cheeser’ will always remind me of home.

    the folks from viva k run a small organic/vegetarian place called elf cafe here in echo park (los angeles) and it’s delicious. i like the food better than i like their music.
