In an effort to improve their foodie vocabularies, the boys have begun paying careful attention to food writing, particularly that of the New York Times, where they routinely encounter sentences such as this:
"Mr Redzepi pairs a pulp of air-dried sea buckthorn with pickled rose hips in one amuse-bouche."
Chip: "I'm pretty sure that 'amuse-bouche' is a foodie term for a dish that's a bit ridiculous, or perhaps funny-looking. For instance, it would be proper to say: 'Kra.se's rabbit-dog is a real amuse-bouche!'"
As for the hipster world, there's only one place to be tonight, the Tap Room, where local hero Dri's new band, Extra Classic, will pack the basement with sweaty hipsters who may be too busy trying to sound knowledgeable about "dub" and Dri's previous work to bother dancing. Yes, we all know that The Anniversary's Your Majesty played a huge, formative role in your development as a discerning consumer of local music but please shut up and shake your ass to "Congo Rebel."
Check out Extra Classic here:
Make sure to get there early (which probably means 11:30 or so) to check out opener Tommy Ferrari and the Future Motor Machines. According to Lawrence.com, their "radtastic biker pop is futuristically motorlicious."
Richard: "I was honestly considering going to the show until I read that line."
