2013 IN FOOD & MUSIC - MATT EVANS
What was the food highlight of your year?
This is such a hard question, because I’ve eaten so much great food this year. Being from Asheville, NC, the food game is on a new level, and it takes a lot for other places to meet the bar. Even after mentioning that though, my food highlight of the year was homemade.
I recently had to cut dairy out of my diet which meant that I couldn’t eat pizza like a college slob anymore (because what is pizza without pounds of cheese). My girlfriend helped me in the woe process by convincing me that we could make homemade pizza. It ended up being delicious! We crammed so much stuff on there. I never would have thought that chorizo on pizza would be amazing!
What was the music highlight of your year?
I would say the music highlight of my year would be around the release of our new singles. My band worked really hard to write a string of songs that we would release on 3 different 7”s. It meant that we had to push ourselves and I was nervous about where our music would land after our first LP. Getting to play FEST 12 was a close 2nd though. It was quite possibly the best show I’ve ever played in my life.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
I once did an acoustic show at Cook Out, a local fast food chain in the south - kind of like IN-N-OUT. It was myself and the glorious PJ BOND. If you’ve never eaten at Cook Out then you should and if you’ve never listened to PJ BOND then you definitely should.
Our last show of 2013 is in three days! Make it count, Asheville.
Also, we’re very excited to be heading up to Fairfax/the DC-area for the first time come mid-January, and later returning to Johnson City, TN!

Today we released a new EP from Boston area punks Trophy Lungs! You can download the EP here from our website, and you can buy the album, on vinyl, from their website here. We recommend this release for fans of Dillinger Four,…
The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), also known as white pointer, white shark, or white death, is an exceptionally large shark found in coastal surface waters in all major oceans. Reaching lengths of more than 20 ft (6 m) and weighing up to 5,000 lb (2,250 kg), the great white shark is the world’s largest known predatory fish. Great white sharks live in almost all coastal and offshore waters which have a water temperature of between 54-75 F (12-24 C), with the greatest concentrations off the southern coasts of Australia, South Africa, California, and Mexico’s Isla Guadalupe.
Great white sharks display countershading, having a white underside and a grey dorsal area (sometimes in a brown or blue shade) that gives an overall “mottled” appearance. The coloration makes it difficult for prey to spot the shark because it breaks up the shark’s outline. When viewed from above, the darker shade blends in with the sea and when seen from below casts a minimal silhouette against the sunlight. Great white sharks, like many other sharks, have rows of teeth behind the main ones, allowing any that break off to be rapidly replaced. A great white shark’s teeth are serrated and when the shark bites it will shake its head side to side and the teeth will act as a saw and tear off large chunks of flesh.

After four years at my job, today was the day I finally got busted for wearing band shirts to work. I tried to fight back with a strong, “You are taking my individuality away” but my boss didn’t buy it. Long Live The Broken Hearts.
I also just spent hours making vegan oreo balls for my family tomorrow. They are delicious.
