A Lowell-based mobile rave could join the ranks of local food trucks if its creator can rack up enough funding to launch the project. Philip Fazioli, a Salem, New Hampshire native, launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his idea for Electric Dance Munchies, a dance party on wheels that serves snacks, breakfast, coffee, and quick lunch to the short-on-time diner.
Fazioli's food truck will visit cities, parks, colleges, and concerts. According to the Kickstarter page, he plans to play music while selling food and rave gear, while inviting customers to "come party with us!"
Electric Dance Munchies derives its name from electronic dance music, a club-style genre recognizable for its untzy beats. Fazioli plans to keep the electronic theme going, using roof solar panels to operate the truck.
EDM's menu will include a rotating selection of cold organic wraps, pressed panini, smoothies, bagels, and coffee.
Fazioli plans to raise $11,000 — what he estimates to be half the cost of getting EDM up and running — for the project, and if things get rolling, the truck will have to pass a number of inspections and obtain the necessary certificates and licenses. EDM's fundraising goal has a deadline of March 9.
