On the heels of his new restaurant and lounge Tailor opening in Manhattan, hipster chef Sam Mason wraps up the first season of the popular new show Dinner with the Band (http://www.dinnerwiththeband.tv) with performances by Toronto punk band F@cked Up. Available on the Internet and through video-on-demand services such as iTunes, Dinner with the Band is a virtual mash-up of indie music and culinary delights.

    Mason hosts Dinner with the Band in his apartment, usually in a t-shirt and jeans, bringing a casual, non-intimidating approach to his dishes that stimulate the palate as well as the dialogue. For the five-member punk band, Mason prepares vegetable papillotes (baked in a foil pouch) served over quinoa, along with a colorful roasted beet and goat cheese salad. While cooking, he interviews the band about life on the road, their favorite meals and upcoming performances.

Music lovers and foodies alike can watch the show online at ON Networks or download it for free from iTunes and view it on their iPhone or video iPod. The band takes the virtual stage on September 24, performing "David Comes to Life," "Meat Parts," and "Blaze of Glory." A hardcore punk band, F@cked Up is "five polite Canadians who play melodic hardcore like they invented it, equal parts Donnas, Poison Idea, and street punk gobbing in the mix," says a recent review by Dusted.

The band also performs at the upcoming Pop Montreal festival where Dinner with the Band hosts a gourmet evening of experimental food and music at Le Bisou on October 6.

F@cked Up follows previous Dinner with the Band guests that include hip hop mastermind El-P, indie rock band Pela, Canadian indie band Tokyo Police Club, punk rockers Cities on Fire, dance-pop quartet Holy Hail, and Los Angeles rapper Pigeon John.
