City Guide: Portland

Food carts owned by rock stars, rollerskating, and a video arcade bar. It must be Portland. For the most recent City Guide episode, we sent a camera to musician, DJ, and man-about-Portland Marius Libman (a.k.a. Copy). Copy shows us some one-of-a-kind Portland gems—a skating rink with the country's largest hanging Wurlitzer, a candy-covered breakfast spot, a video arcade bar, and food carts owned by rock n' rollers. … Read more »

Tune in an Afternoon: Dam-Funk and Nite Jewel

Two distinct LA flavors that taste great together! A few weeks back when we were sitting around fantasizing who in Los Angeles we'd want to collaborate for our recurring series, Tune in an Afternoon, we pretty quickly came up with Dam-Funk and Nite Jewel.

Tune in an Afternoon: Lemonade

Lemonade takes our 40 bucks, gets all Anthony Bourdain on us, and then makes a fish-slapping track that you can download! In the second installment of our occasional "Tune in an Afternoon" series, Brooklyn bass trio Lemonade takes our money to NYC's Deluxe Food Market in Chinatown to find musical inspiration among the vats of frogs and bok choy. After sampling garlic chops, cava pops, and fish slaps, the band busts out a tropical track fit for the energy drink-fueled kids' show of their mind. … Read more »
