You know what pairs well with food? Music, duh. Specifically, the sweet tunes of unreleased music from the local Allen Stone, paired with food prepared by the band’s organ player and chef, Greg Ehrlich.

Ehrlich tells Eater he’ll use a day off during the band’s week home in Seattle next week (during their Evolution of an Artist tour) to entertain and feed some fans and food lovers. On Wednesday, April 15, he’ll host a pop-up dinner at newly vacant Bloom in Ballard to celebrate the release of the band’s new record, Radius.

Ehrlich regularly cooks for the Allen Stone band on the road, and several of those dishes have inspired the Thai/Vietnamese/Japanese prix fixe that he’ll present Wednesday, cooking alongside Le Pichet’s Dan Phan (formerly of Joule).

"Dan works his ass off to make these [pop-ups] happen. He's invaluable to my team and is the one who introduced me to Vietnamese food in the first place."

Next week's meal promises five courses, though Ehrlich is known for throwing in surprises at his handful of previous pop-ups. A partial course list for Radius includes hamachi with tangerines and coconut, and salmon with turmeric, lemongrass, galangal, and forbidden rice.

Included in the $120 ticket price is complimentary beer from Lagunitas Brewing Company and a copy of the Radius EP, plus a card for a download of the full album when it’s released on May 26. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner starts at 6; cocktails and wine are also available for purchase.

Tickets for the event go on sale today at 5 p.m. on Brown Paper Tickets. All of Ehrlich’s previous pop-ups have sold out, though in the past he has sometimes spun out a second seating when there was enough demand. The space fits 26, and bonus: The band will also be in attendance, and their new album playing the in the background.
