New Favorite TV Show: “Dinner With The Band”
Friends, I have found my new television obsession—the Independent Film Channel’s “Dinner with the Band,” which conveniently airs on Tuesdays (tonight!) at 11 p.m. The concept is simple. Tattooed chef Sam Mason invites a different band each week to his New York loft. He shows them how to make a souped-up version of their favorite tour food and, while things cook, the band plays a set. The reasons the show does it for me: A) Sam is way hot, regardless of his mustache situation, B) because the bands he invites are great, from Kid Sister to Les Savy Fav and, C) you get to discover some rockin’ new tunes and cook stuff at the same time. Also, since we’re dealing with bands, there is a high instance rate of tight jeans. My DVR is already set.
