[via press release from IFC]

IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE "BEAT," GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

IFC PRESENTS THE "BAND" SPANKIN' NEW ORIGINAL SERIES DINNER WITH THE BAND HOSTED BY CELEBRATED NYC CHEF SAM MASON

WITH MUSICAL PERFORMANCES BY INDIE MUSIC'S FINEST:

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT; THE DEVIL MAKES THREE; THE MOUNTAIN GOATS; ANDREW WK; MY BRIGHTEST DIAMOND; MURDER CITY DEVILS; LIGHTSPEED CHAMPION; THEOPHILUS LONDON; AND VEGA.

TEN FRESH SERVINGS OF THE FIRST EVER INDIE MUSIC COOKING & TALK SHOW TO BEGIN ON IFC APRIL 27 @ 10:30 PM ET/PT

The new IFC Original Series, DINNER WITH THE BAND is the first cooking show to combine culinary delights, musical performances and conversations with select acclaimed indie music artists. DINNER WITH THE BAND debuts April 27 at 10:30 pm ET/PT in IFC's Tuesday night AUTOMAT programming block, following two new back-to-back 15-minute episodes of FOOD PARTY.

In each 30-minute episode, celebrated and tattooed NYC chef Sam Mason (Tailor, WD-50), invites a band over to his Brooklyn loft where he teaches them how to add his signature culinary spin to their favorite "on-tour" food. Throughout the show, Chef Mason and the artists converse on food, music, and life while cooking together. After they "chow down" they "get down" as each act takes to the loft's stage to play a rockin' musical set.

Indie music artists planned for the all-new, 10-episode season include: Rufus Wainwright; The Devil Makes Three; Broken Social Scene; The Mountain Goats; Andrew WK; My Brightest Diamond; Murder City Devils; Lightspeed Champion; Theophilus London; and Vega.

Chef Mason, a challenger to Iron Chef Morimoto on Iron Chef America, is the former pastry chef of New York's WD-50 and recent proprietor of SOHO's contemporary dining and cocktail parlor, Tailor. A James Beard nominee and modern day pioneer of avant-garde cooking, Mason brings a casual approach to his dishes that stimulate the palate along with dialogue.

"The perfect night out for me always includes food and music," said Sam Mason. "This show uncovers and recommends great bands, great food and great cocktails - and gives people an intimate glimpse into these artists' lives."

Like the critically acclaimed IFC Original series predecessors, The Whitest Kids U' Know and Food Party, DINNER WITH THE BAND was first a buzzed-about webseries before IFC re-imaged the show as a half-hour network series. DINNER WITH THE BAND will also be served alongside its two IFC Original siblings in the IFC AUTOMAT, a Tuesday night block packed with exclusive programming of testosterone-infused network premieres, originals, shorts, web shows, anime and more.

Sneak peek episodes of DINNER WITH THE BAND that aired in late 2009 will re-air prior to the show's new "main course" episodes premiering in April.

To complement the show's on-air play, IFC.com will feature recipes, bonus footage and behind-the-scenes moments from each episode, including additional performances from each band.
