Derek van Bakergem stops by to talk about this year’s Pinknic music, food and wine festival. Started in 2016 by Derek and co-founder Pierrick Bouquet, Pinknic is quickly becoming a New York City summer tradition, welcoming thousands to enjoy rosé and dance the day away. This year’s festival is July 19 and 20 on Randall’s Island Park, and features headliners Mark Ronson and Chromeo. We pull an in-studio performance from the archives, and reach back to May 2012 to revisit our time with Wilmington, DE, indie rockers The Spinto Band. In addition to playing songs from their new album Shy Pursuit, they also told us all about their greenhouse recording studio, and how to properly order a hoagie from Wawa.
