This year, Rachael’s celebrating the 10th anniversary of her signature food and music festival: Feedback! One of her favorite times of the year, the festivities span two venues over three days, with almost 30 bands! Here’s a recap of what you might have missed on Day One of the Feedback House…
The 2017 Feedback House kicked off with a bang this year. From a special band selected by Rach straight from the New Yorker, to adoptable puppies (!!!) from a local Austin shelter, there was something for everyone. An extra special treat awaited guests as well: A performance from the legendary band, Modern English, on tour to promote their new album – and Rachael even created a recipe just for them!
Check out some of our favorite inspiring, delicious, and downright adorable moments from the first day of what’s bound to be one of our most fun Feedbacks yet.
