Hot Luck's Aaron Franklin & James Moody

My KUTX // May 21, 2022

After a pandemic-induced hiatus, Hot Luck Fest is back May 26-29. The festival brings together live music, delicious food, and cooking demonstrations by some of the best chefs from Austin and the U.S. On the music side, this year’s iteration features performances from Superchunk, Shannon and The Clams, DJ Jazzy Jeff with DJ Mel and more.

Hot Luck is the brainchild of Franklin Barbecue’s Aaron Franklin and longtime music booker James Moody, and this week they’re back for another My KUTX helping. In the immortal words of Moody, this guest DJ set sounds like “roadtrip music if you had a van that smelled like cheeseburgers, on your way to Hot Luck.” Dig in on Saturday, May 21 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player above.
