A gig doesn’t double as dinner, but at DJ Miso Shiru and MC Gohan’s shows there’s a good chance food will be involved. Besides a hip-hop set, the audience can sometimes participate in cooking demonstrations.

“At one show, I sang about manju (a Japanese sweet) and afterward the crowd started making manju. Then I performed while they cooked. That was my favorite show,” says Miso, who, despite the act’s name, is a one-woman show (she refused to tell us her real name).
