Eric Carlson (Steppe People)
SPB: What is your primary or go-to tour food?
Carlson: Touring allows bands the opportunity to venture out into the world, see new and exotic scenes, meet fans and future friends, and of course taste far out and local delicacies. None of those bands are Steppe People. Steppe People are a delicate ecosystem. In order to keep it tight, we require a strict regimen. When traveling, whether far or wide, we plan accordingly. During tour preparation, we look at a number of factors that influence our meal options. Among those factors, most significant are: rising oil prices, summer storms, travel patterns of migrant labor, and of course, Q3 fast casual marketing trends. Surprisingly, survey always says the Zagat rated Masala Zone.
