This week’s podcast guests are Jason Sechrist and Zach Carothers from…

PORTUGAL. THE MAN

We start the show talking about food at Summer festivals, and they confirmed what Warpaint and Grouplove told us on the past two podcasts: Osheaga in Montreal has the greatest festival food of all time. Jason tells us about his stint as an oyster shucker in Portland, and Zach gives us recommendations for eating in El Paso and Alaska.

ONLY 4 MORE DAYS UNTIL BUDWEISER #MADEINAMERICAFEST LANDS IN PHILADELPHIA AND LOS ANGELES.

It’s the first American music festival to run simultaneously on two coasts, and it all goes down this Labor Day Weekend, August 30th and 31st in both Los Angeles at Grand Park, and in Philadelphia at Benjamin Franklin Parkway. And while some artists will only play one city or the other, a bunch will be  crisscrossing the country to play at both. It’s the 3rd year that Budweiser Made in America will return to Philly but the inaugural year for Los Angeles. So the big question is, if you could go to either one which one would you want to go to?!  A bunch of our former podcast guests will be playing… Philly features our friends Kings of LeonSpoonMayer Hawthorne, and Vacationer.  And Los Angeles has got Weezer and Capital Cities.  

And depending on which city you pick, you’ll also get to see Kanye West, Steve Aoki, Kendrick Lamar, John Mayer, Iggy Izalea, The National, Tiesto, Chromeo, Pharrell, Girl Talk, Gareth Emery, Cherub, Bleachers, Juanes, and Grimes, just to name a few.  Get the full lineups and more details at http://www.madeinamericafest.com

The Budweiser Made in America festival benefits the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, the United Way of Lancaster County, and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.

Single day tickets and 2 day passes are available from Ticketmaster for both cities.  Click the links below to buy your tickets now:

LA: SAT Single Day | SUN Single Day | 2-Day Passes

PHILLY: SAT Single Day | SUN Single Day | 2-DAY Passes

And yes… this post was sponsored, but there are far worse ways to help keep our podcast free than telling you about a kick ass music festival featuring a bunch of our former podcast guests.

#tbt My first summer music festival. Don’t remember the food, but I do remember the @smashingpumpkins, Beastie Boys, Breeders, @NickCaveofficial and L7. Oh, and seeing Perry Farrell sing Porno for Pyros songs in a tiny tent.  -Zach
