Santa Monica, CA (July 7, 2021) – KCRW Music and Good Food announce details of Part Four of Sound Bites, the virtual event that pairs luminaries from the fields of music and food.
The fourth Sound Bites features Good Food’s Evan Kleiman and KCRW Program Director of Music Anne Litt in conversation with punk icons Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney, and drummer, author, and owner of Superiority Burger in NYC Brooks Headley, on Tuesday, July 20, at 7:00 PM PDT, via Zoom. The event is free with registration.
In the midst of 2020’s endless turbulence, Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker wrote and recorded their recently-released album Path of Wellness in Portland, OR. They welcomed local musicians in the studio to bring their vision to life. For the first time, the band also took the reins and self-produced the eleven-track offering which Stereogum called “intense, intricate, personal indie rock.” Sleater-Kinney are set to hit the road this August for the “It’s Time” co-headlining tour with Wilco.
Brooks Headley’s own punk journey started in the early 90s, where he played drums in hardcore bands Universal Order of Armageddon, Born Against, (Young) Pioneers, Men’s Recovery Project, and many more. When Headley shifted from music to food, he won the James Beard Award for “Outstanding Pastry Chef” at the NY restaurant, Del Posto, and in 2019, was a James Beard nominee for “Best Chef: NYC” for his vegetarian restaurant, Superiority Burger.
Sound Bites is a series of free, virtual events about the intertwined worlds of food and music. The series explores important questions with visionaries from these ever-evolving sectors. After a year of missing restaurant culture and live performances, where are we now and what does the future hold for two of our favorite things in life?
