Hey, fellow heat stroke victims –
This Friday August 17th is the last Secret Supper for awhile, as I’m hunkering down to finish writing and complete preproduction on my new album. Edible Ojai was kind enough to run my article about these suppers. You can read it here.
So! I hope you’ll join JB White, Charlie Bosson and me for an evening of food and songs about and by Elvis. We will dig below the surface of the man with works by Gillian Welch, John Trudell, Jesse Winchester and, of course, Paul Simon.
And we will dig below the surface of the food Elvis loved, with re-engineered versions of his favorites. For example, instead of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, we are having:
Velvet Elvis cocktail
Black-Eyed Pea Crostini with raisins and wilted greens
Peanut Soup with Plantain Croutons
Sweet Potato Biscuits with Ham, Arugula and Basil Blackberry Balsamic Drizzle
Marinated Collard Green Salad
Suggested pairing: a light white like a Sauvignon Blanc or an IPA would be nice. I’ll have ice for you to put your bottles in.
It’s the usual: $40 at the door, made out to “Fractured Atlas,” includes cocktail, dinner and the show. BYOB if you’d like wine or beer with dinner.
Hit me back to reserve your spot. We’re going to eat under the trees, because it’s just too damn hot to be inside.
Hope to see you there!
P.S. For those of you who would still like to participate in my “Icing on the Cake” Kickstarter campaign and all its fun prizes, it closes this Saturday! It’s not too late to get in on the cookies, pasta sauce, personalized concerts and Guerilla trip to Disneyland. Click here for all the details!
