This coming Sunday, Aug. 28, Phoebe Bridgers will play her biggest hometown show to date as one of the headliners of This Ain’t No Picnic, a two-day indie/alternative festival located at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Southern California.

Put on by Goldenvoice, the festival features an eclectic mix of acts from all over the indie/rock/electronica realm, but for Bridgers, it’s something even more special. With that in mind, the buzzed-about singer/songwriter teamed up with HomeState, a beloved L.A.-based breakfast taco/brunch spot that calls itself “A Texas Kitchen in SoCal.”

Together, they launched “The Maxine,” a new vegan taco that shares its name with Bridgers’ dog, Maxine. The limited-time offering will be available at all HomeState locations in Southern California through Aug. 22.

Per a news release:

The Maxine is a vegan taco made with black beans, shiitake mushrooms, avocado, caramelized onions, crispy corn strips, served on a Kernel of Truth Corn Tortilla. $1.25 from every taco ordered will go directly to CASA of Los Angeles (Court Appointed Special Advocate) – a community-based organization advocating for children and families in LA County’s overburdened child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Says Phoebe, “HomeState is one of my favorite local restaurants; Maxine and I should probably be cut off from their breakfast tacos by now.”
