Calling all foodies!
Ume will appear on the season premiere of the Emmy® award-winning series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - The Final Tour. The episode will debut on Travel Channel on Monday, September 3 at 9PM ET / PT to launch the ninth and final season of the acclaimed series! Going out with a bang, yo! And going out with a band! We love our own jokes. BTW!
The one-hour season opener starts in Austin, TX where Bourdain soaks in all that is good in the hipster hotspot during the 2012 SXSW Interactive, Film, and Music Festival. With a variety of musical artists as his guides, Tony enjoys a great week of music, fantastic food and partying with a bunch of cool new rock star friends.
While in Austin, Bourdain attended Ume's packed performance at Hotel Vegas for the Brooklyn Vegan SXSW party. To quote Bourdain, it was "... a shitload of rawk in a tiny little room." Bourdain also enjoyed some hardcore eats with the local trio, over dinner at the Barley Swine restaurant. Check out the teaser below for a preview of the band's time with Bourdain.
"We're big fans of Anthony Bourdain," said Ume's Lauren Larson. "We're thrilled to have had the opportunity to help show him what makes Austin such a unique place and honored he came out to see us play live in our hometown!"
Food and music? Two of our favorite things. Be sure and tune in!
