This month on IFC, we’re serving up brand spankin’ new episodes of “Dinner With The Band” and “Food Party” featuring indie music and funky recipes to satisfy any appetite. It all kicks off Tuesday, April 27th at 10pm. There’ll be back to back episodes of the psychadelic series “Food Party,” with host Thu Tran creating interesting dishes while also dealing with surreal circumstances. Then at 10:30pm, watch executive chef Sam Mason cook up deliciousness on “Dinner With The Band” while hosting an array of music artists, including Rufus Wainwright, Vega, Andrew WK and more.
And, to make you a little more hungry this month, tune in for IFC’s Food Fight Thursday, April 8th at 6pm for a recipe that involves a pinch of action, a hint of gore and some sweet-sounding titles. First up, “Blood and Wine,” a jewel heist thriller starring Jack Nicholson and Jennifer Lopez. Then catch teen werewolf cult favorite “Ginger Snaps,” Bond man Daniel Craig as a drug dealer in “Layer Cake” and a pre-“Juno” Ellen Page as a teen on a vengeful mission in “Hard Candy.”
Also this month, horror reigns on Thursday April 23rd starting at 7:45pm. Tune in for the classic, never-gets-old fright flick “Halloween,” teens being stalked by a crazed psycho killer in “Madman,” and Christina Ricci fighting her way out of werewolfdom in “Cursed,” directed by horror master Wes Craven. Plus, the night gets stranger and gorier with Dee Snider’s “Strangeland,” about a deranged convict who returns to his old ways of luring unsuspecting victims into his home to torture them.
Plus, Friday, April 9th at 8:30pm, catch our SXSW wrap-up special, featuring highlights of all the most awesome moments from the two-week festival. If you miss it, check out the schedule for airings throughout the month.
