Live Music and Dead Meat was a perfect evening of gastronical experiements and local music treats at the Turf Club Wednesday night. The event was hosted by food, hunting and taxidermy blog, Stuffed Pheasant, and included game meat samples, wine tastings, a cooking lesson and four bands. This photo is a turkey-bacon-baguette made on a table, mid-bar. Salomanilla Summit anyone?

Lookbook bandmate Grant Cutler in plaid was diggin' the meat and thought the wine pairing was especially complimentary to the bison summer sausage.

The trays of Bison, Buffalo and Elk summer sausage was squirted with canned cheese and offered with butter crackers. It didn't look very appealing but the trays cleared out faster than any of those animals can run from danger.

Fur coats were welcome at this meat and hunt-happy event; lots of dead minks, yet no one seemed to mind.

The crowd was quite a diverse selection of hipsters, fashionistas and local musicians. Suprisingly blaze orange was not the hot color of the evening.

I won this hat in the drawing. Other giveaways included meat sticks, camping candles, a fishing rod, concert tickets and wild animal paintings.

Lookbook performed third in the musical line-up. Guystorm, The Softrocks and Dante and the Lobster also played sets, ranging from grimy indie-rock to 80's karaoke.

The Guystorm was last to hit the stage with their hyper grunge guitars. The place was packed and the meat had been devowered. Vocalist Angelo V. Pennacchio admitted he himself doesn't eat meat.

After the summer sausage had been picked over, someone went overboard with the squirtable cheese product. People still ate it.

The woman behind the Stuffed Phesant blog. Why did she start such a thing? "I wanted to start a music blog, but that's boring. So I started one about food, and added in hunting and taxidermy info."  Oh. Well, that makes sense.
