We catch up with Nic Adler, the festival director behind two of Los Angeles’ top eating-and-drinking experiences: Eat Drink Vegan and Arroyo Seco Weekend. Eat Drink Vegan--originally called the Vegan Beer and Food Festival--was started by Nic, a vegan himself, in 2009. That first year was a gathering of 400 people in the parking lot of his very own The Roxy Theatre. This year’s crowd of 10,000+ surrounded the Rose Bowl, and there were more than 450 vendors in attendance. Now in its second year, Arroyo Seco Weekend combines great food--Burritos La Palma, Hatchet Hall and Freedman’s are among the restaurants participating--with great rock music. The 2018 headliners are Neil Young, Kings of Leon, Jack White and Robert Plant. We hit up our vault and revisit a musical guest from 2014: Psychic Twin. Erin Fein began writing and recording as Psychic Twin, and while recording by herself, doubling her vocals and singing melodies, she began to feel that she was in a way working with her twin. Psychic Twin gave us a live a live performance from their EP, Two Visions.
