Musical Lineup Announced For First Annual Phoenix Food Truck Festival

Our sister blog, Chow Bella, knows the score when it comes to the whole food truck boom here in Phoenix. As such, the staff there has all details regarding tickets to the first annual Phoenix Food Truck festival, which features over 30 food trucks taking over A.R.T.S. Project #1/ 408 E. Roosevelt St on Saturday, October 22.

My favorite truck, Hey Joe, is scheduled to park, but I'm looking forward to sampling the goods from trucks I haven't visited. The whole thing promises to be a lot of fun, and what's better than munching on some tender pork belly? Munching on tender pork belly to a well selected soundtrack of Phoenix music.

More details after the jump.

The event will feature music selected by Stinkweeds Records from Daryl Scherrer (also known as Daryl Scariot, of Turn Back O Man and Where Dead Voices Gather), Pick and Holler, Monophonic Hillside, letdownright (Kimber Lanning plays drums) and Dry River Yacht Club.

The event is being hosted by the Phoenix Street Food Coalition and the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation -- and the Four Peaks Beer Truck and Dos Cabezas Winery will host a cash bar so you can wash those vittles down.

As for the eating too much, well let's take a page out of Scherrer's lyric book to address that: "Life is much to short to waste on dignity."

Amen and bon appétit.
