Cosmic American Voodoo Van: The Truck of Rock

The van announced its presence on Eater in late December, and has been making sporadic appearances -- Rickshaw Stop one night, Monarch another -- while in the final stages of getting all its permits in Alameda and San Francisco counties. Stefani's more of the svengali behind the truck rather than its executive chef; he's working with Guy Thunderbird, a FlexXBronco bandmate, and Seth Stowaway.
"Our plan is to bring food trucks to music venues," Stefani says. "People get hungry and a lot of the restaurants don't stay open that late, or don't serve good food. My band is playing the Independent March 1, and I'd like to have the food truck parked there for that event -- and I'm really looking forward to getting involved in Coachella and Outside Lands."
You want to taste the rawk? You'll have to visit the SPCA's Valentine's Day Adopt-a-thon this Friday, where Cosmic American Voodoo Van will be appearing alongside Jackson Galaxy, host of Animal Planet's "Cat From Hell," and Kevin from Frisco Tattoo, who'll be doing animal-themed tattoos for discount rates. Oh, and Stefani says there's something really big for Cosmic American Voodoo Van in the works, but he can't talk about it for a couple more months. "We've already signed confidentiality agreements," he says. "And I don't want to jinx it."
