'Dinner With the Band' Line-Up Announced
The producers of the upcoming IFC series Dinner with the Band, starring Tailor chef-owner Sam Mason, have released the line-up of bands slated to appear on the show. Fork in the Road attended the taping of an episode, where Brooklyn-based Men joined Mason in the on-set kitchen to make duck buns ("like pork buns, but with duck"). Unlike many indie rock artists these days -- including Yacht, who had already taped their segment -- the members of Menare the furthest thing from vegan. JD Samson, formerly of Le Tigre, and Michael O'Neill even admitted to scarfing fast-food from major chains like Burger King and Mickey D's while on the road. Other bands scheduled to appear on the show (and cook with the decidedly photogenic Mason) include Les Savy Fav, Kid Sister and Flosstradamus, Final Fantasy, and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. Dinner With the Band premieres November 24.
