Foster the People say Their Manager is a Foodie

November 4, 2011

Eater recently did an interview with Foster the People and the band talked about the food they come across in their travels and their foodie manager.

"Our tour manager is a really big food guy, a connoisseur, and every city we go to he shows us a cool place," said Mark Pontius, the band's drummer. Of those cool places, Pontius said the band tried oysters in Boston. "In Boston, we had oysters at Eastern Standard. It was seriously the best seafood I've ever had in my life. My first time having oysters, and I'm definitely in love with them."

When it comes to his hometown of L.A., Pontius said he's all about the burgers.

"I'm big into burgers, and there's a place I've been going to for years called Molly's Burger," the drummer said. "It's a shack on the side of the street. I'm not crazy about complicated burgers, I just like a nice patty, lettuce, cheese, mustard, mayo, ketchup. Umami's really good, too, so I like that."
