Hot Luck is a food and music festival. What does that mean, exactly? Well, there are food events and there are live music events. But there is also some crossover, as folks will learn tonight at the Mohawk tonight when former Sonic Youth singer-guitarist Thurston Moore takes the stage. The food component to compliment the act? S’mores. And they’ll be cooked on the open flame of a cooker designed by Aaron Franklin. The open-flame cooker’s name? Thurston S’Moore. What s’more would you expect from Franklin, admitted devotee of the dad joke?

Individual tickets will be sold at the door for $22, and Hot Luck’s Whole Enchilada pass holders also get access to the gig.
