Friends! We are so stoked to announce we’ll be heading out with the legendary Pennywise in April and May for a couple weeks for their 25th anniversary tour! The tour starts in California, makes it’s way up the west coast into Canada and ends in Winnipeg! Come fucking hang out! We are also playing Oliver Peck’s Elm St Music and Tattoo Fest in Dallas this June right before heading out for the entire run of the Vans Warped Tour! Head over to our tour dates section for more information!
As we have recently announced, we will be heading out on a cool tour with our good friends Pennywise and A Wilhelm Scream this March. And because we can already feel all the fun and excitement coming toward us, we would like to share with you some of the things we usually do to get ready for a tour. We also invite you to check out our upcoming tour dates if you want to see us playing live and come back regularly to keep up with the latest developments in the life of the TBR.
How We Try To Eat Healthy When On Tour
As exhilarating and powerful a rock tour is, and as satisfying the energy the fans emanate might be, food is ultimately the fuel all rock bands need to keep them going for months in a row. Eating the right, healthy food can make a huge difference in the tonus and attitude of a band. And like any other rockers, we too make many stops at grocery shops, drive-throughs, and diners whenever we get the chance. The lack of sufficient time, bad logistics and money force us to ponder our eating choices well. So we don’t say no to dried red beans or local food every time we get the chance. Look for diners that have many cars, preferably pickup trucks in the parking lot. This is sign that the food is tasty and affordable. We like to go Mexican every time we can and Miguel is a great chef and he always cooks tacos or burritos for the road. He also has a mind-blowing carrot cake recipe he got from the videoculinary.com site. We particularly enjoy having this cake because of its moist and rich flavor thanks to the mascarpone cream and crunchy walnuts.
The recipe does not have any complex ingredients to worry about – carrots, walnuts, eggs, sugar, oil, flour, cinnamon, baking powder is all you will need for the cake. For a detailed list of the rest of ingredients needed for the mascarpone cream, visit the videoculinary site, read the instructions and look at the preparation video online in case you do not have a lot of experience baking a cake. There are plenty of other healthy desserts and cakes ideas to look into there, as well as many casseroles and other quick dishes you can prepare and grab along when touring. We also know it is important to eat small amounts of food so we won’t feel drained from all the energy during our explosive shows.
Hey everyone, you may have noticed we’ve updated our links, pictures, added a video section and a merch shop run by our friends at Interpunk.com! We also have some new merch designs available check them out through the link!
Some of the things that best characterize Ethiopian food refer to its hands-on approach, the small sized bites, and the great diversity of vegetables it consists of. Plus, the food here comes with many special flavors that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet, hence making it so unique. These properties also make this food appealing for your small ones, especially when it comes to teaching them the importance of eating more vegetables.
Serving Foods On The Injera
Most foods here are served on the injera, which is a flat bread with a spongy composition that is made from teff – an important whole grain that contains zero gluten. Children can use pieces of the injera to easily serve the vegetables on their eatable “plate”, which makes the eating process a whole lot more fun. Wots or meat stews are also best served while accompanied by injera. The nutritious value of the food in this country can help children ingest the right amounts of vitamins and minerals or protein and maintain their health. Speaking o maintenance, to maintain your house protected at all times, it is best to get in touch with a professional emergency locksmith in your area and make sure you and your kids are safe at all times.
Ethiopian food is also many kids’ favorite due to the fact it can be entirely eaten with the help of their hands; things can get a little messy, but messy is what smaller children like to begin with. This food also contains plenty of onions, garlic or eggplants which are cooked down and carefully hidden inside delicious meals. The simple cooking of the injera is another activity that many children like. Injera can be easily prepared like pancakes and the process can turn into a highly engaging and at the same time educational one. A trick to make your kids like injera faster – not all take it to the heart at first, as it has a sour taste and it has a weird texture – is to encourage children to pick up their veggies or pieces of meat with it.
