To Steel City we return this Saturday! Joining us will be our friends Painted Blue. The show starts at 8:00pm. Presale tickets are $12 and available on the Steel City website. If you haven’t been to Steel City, it’s a super cool BYOB with great sound and a great vibe and one of our favorite places to play.

Chicken and Porter

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Chicken and Porter is the delicious combination you get when you cross the seven members of Wissahickon Chicken Shack with the four of us in Mason Porter. Back in September both bands played in Wind Gap, PA at the AFBA Shindig. Chicken and Porter had been occurring in smaller informal settings and late night jams for several months but this time we decided to take the stage in full force. The result was one hell of a good time.

Thanks for Brian Pierce of Aimless Pursuit for putting up with us while he was doing sound and for recording it; and for the AFBA for being a great bunch of people and supporting our bands.

Take a listen to a few of the tracks below.

Chicken Shack will be joining us again Dec. 12th at the Brickette, you can most certainly expect some Chicken and Porter that night!
