Thursday night Holocene drops "EAT YR HEART OUT: A Culinary Music Festival." As the invite states: "We at Holocene are letting Portland's two favorite things, great food and great tunes, collide for an evening." Are they ever. DJ Brokenwindow (of Community Library) will play a set of 100% food-themed songs. There will be a live demo of vegan enchilada-making courtesy of Guidance Counselor. They'll even attempt to pull off a DoubleDare-style poutine eating challenge, sponsored by Potato Champion. There will also be a screening of the song-and-a-recipe net series "Cooking with...". On top of all that, a local band cookie bake-off (The Angry Orts, White Fang, Breakfast Mountain, Reverse Dotty, Ocean Age, Blue Horns, DJs New Moon Poncho, Fleshtone, St. Frankie Lee and more) will be judged by orchestral pop ensemble: Typhoon! (not to be confused with the restaurant of the same name and same exclamation point). Groovy tunes will be provided by synth poppers Wampire and folk rockers St. Frankie Lee. All this, and it's only three bucks. And you thought the line to get into nearby Bunk Sandwiches was long.
