"Sometimes we write together, sometimes we write separately and come together after," says E. As for how their relationship's evolved after the last year of nearly non-stop touring together? Do they ever butt heads while writing?

"That's maybe the only time we don't butt heads," says E with a laugh. "No, we have a certain chemistry. And, you know, we're having fun. It just works."

As for the rest of the year, E says they hope to get back into the studio to start working on a follow-up by December. Until then, we'd recommend taking advantage of any chance to see 'em you get.

Oh, and food-wise? The workshop tent demands that you come both hungry and ready to learn. Maybe it's because Chino's bite-size, savory broth-filled soup dumplings have been haunting our dreams lately (in a delicious way), but we especially can't stop looking at the workshop called "Dumplings with Brandon Jew." He had us at "cooking secrets" and "techniques of dumpling creation." That's at 2:30pm in the Workshop Tent. Education never tasted so good.
