- Jane, on creative on-the-road food prep: I’ve made quiona at rest stops. You take a quart container—like a Tupperware—take water from the hot coffee thing and let it sit. And then a couple hours later you microwave is=t a couple minutes and it comes out great. …I’ve steamed vegetables at rest stops before. You just put a little bit of water in a ziplock bag.
We reach Teeny’s apartment, a gorgeous, sunny one-bedroom and everyone ditches their shoes, just as the front woman does when taking the stage. Flowers from the group’s recent MoMA show sit on top of a lovely Housing Works-scored table. These women are helluva hostesses, cracking open bottles and arranging cheese. Mac Demarco plays over a MacBook. Throughout the evening, the girls intermittently sing along sweetly—among a flurry of salty, sailor slang. The space is warm in a pleasant, familiar way.
