We have a secret hobby here at Aa. We like to bake things for people we love or for those who inspire us. Its our little way of thanking them for whatever it is they do, and offering up what we do.
Last week we decided to test one of our recipes on our current crushes, La Dispute. The boys were in town supporting Thrice on their latest tour and debuting their newest album, Wildlife. After stalking them via Twitter we received confirmation that most of their van was either vegetarian or vegan.
Our Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies were in their final stages of development and came out beautifully. We dropped them off with Adam Vass, bass player and art dude extraordinaire. We meant to take a photo of him with the cookies, like the fangirls we are, but we were too busy buying all the merch, like the fangirls we are (including a beautiful 4ft banner of the band’s logo we are planning on hanging somewhere when we open our physical location).
The band’s newest album was released the day after the show so we waited to listen to it so we could hear the songs live. And boy did we make the right decision! Everything sounded amazing. Our faith in newer music, and younger musicians has been revitalized. Wildlife is challenging, even within the band’s catalogue, losing a bit of the “loud, quite, loud” approach and letting the lyrics take center stage without losing the intensity, quality, or creativity of the musicianship. Shout outs to Dallas and 1919 in Ft Worth were given and a general appreciation of community was shared.
We are proud to support a band that understands and values how important community is and we hope our cookies made them feel a little more at home. Listen to Wildlife, and if possible, support La Dispute on their current tour (and buy so much merch because it is amazzzzzing!)
