Roads & Kingdoms and Japan House Present:
Live Band Karaoke Contest judged by Anthony Bourdain and Friends
At Vulcan Gas Company in Austin, Texas
March 14, 2016
Join us for an evening featuring a mic-dropping panel of chefs—Anthony Bourdain, José Andrés, Laura Sawicki, Ludo Lefebvre and R&K co-founder Matt Goulding—whose only qualification for judging punk rock karaoke is sheer enthusiasm and decades of shouting along to these songs in kitchens.
The first part of the event will be an on-stage conversation between Bourdain and Goulding (author of Rice, Noodle, Fish: Deep Travels through Japan’s Food Culture) about eating one’s face off in Japan.
The contest will begin at 10:30pm with the backing band Punk Rock Karaoke—DFW, from Dallas, Tx. Japanese grill fare (pork belly, beef heart skewers and more) will be provided by Fukumoto Austin.
