Saturday, November 8- Hit Up the Fabulous Food Fest's "Concert in the Kitchen," Featuring G. Love & Special Sauce

Plenty of artists would object to performing at an event devoted to sampling exotic beers from around the world. Not G. Love, who plays a “concert in the kitchen” at the International Beer Fest Grand Tasting Session at the I-X Center. The singer-songwriter is a self-professed foodie and sells his own barbecue sauce (his backing band is called Special Sauce and he had a hit with a song called "Cold Beverages"), and his name is attached to a special brew dubbed Peach Porch Lounger. “I’ll drink anything if you put it in front of me,” says Love. “I love a good craft beer. [I had] fun going out to the brewery and sampling lots of stuff and we sampled like 20 different beers. We wanted to make a beer that represents the music, so we put malted biscuit powder and molasses and peach extract in it and it was really something.” Love played in Cleveland earlier this year but without a new album to promote, he hasn’t hit the road as much as usual, though he just returned from playing a few shows in Fiji where he had some time to hit the waves and surf alongside champion surfer Kelly Slater. “
It’s been a great year,” he says, adding that he’s finished recording a new studio album that he’ll promote with a tour next year. “These are always fun years because you’re not out promoting a certain batch of songs, and you can mix it up and try a lot of new stuff and play a lot of old stuff. I like those kind of years even though they’re not as busy as a record release year.” (Jeff Niesel)
