Vegetarians now have a new food option at Live Nation venues: The plant-based Impossible Burger will be served in 37 of their amphitheaters in the U.S., including Jones Beach in Long Island, PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ, and Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn. Live Nation PR notes that this is the first time the Impossible Burger has been offered in a concert space. A full list of Live Nation venues serving Impossible Burgers is below.

You can also get the Impossible Slider at some White Castles, and the Impossible Burger at the Bareburger chain that also serves the competing Beyond Burger. Alamo Drafthouse also serves the Beyond Burger, though due to a shortage they're temporarily off the menu.

In NYC, musicians' veggie burger of choice is probably East Village spot Superiority Burger which was started by punk rock drummer and four-star pastry chef Brooks Headley. In a new interview on Vulture, Gang Gang Dance's Brian Degraw says Superiority Burger had a direct influence on the group's new album:

His salads and his soups, to me, have the same quality as the Roy De Forest drawings. There’s some kind of coconut potato baked soup that he makes, it’s really simple, but it has that magic pastel, that line, the food equivalent. A potato coconut base, a little cilantro, some kind of oil, but then he bakes potato skins and puts them on top, like a crouton or whatever. It’s shit like that where I’m like, “Oh my God, he took it to a whole ’nother level.” He does weird things with adding pretzels to salads, and all kinds of “low-end foods,” but he turns them into delicious high-end cuisine, and it’s all extremely affordable. It’s these touches that for me are not inspiring me from a musical place, they are coming from these outside elements, of seeing or tasting, or touching. The films we talked about are influential, but the truth is that for me the films that actually influenced the record the most are cooking shows. I learn a lot more about music through watching any random cooking show, the way the elements go together, than analyzing songs. That, to me, is musical knowledge.
