And isn't self-confidence what hip-hop is all about, kids? Sure, the boys in Grand Buffet rap about money, but they also rap about candy and the dangers of smoking on their latest release, Cigarette Beach, and they commit enough in-jokes to vinyl to get arrested. In addition to a soon- to-be-released album called Pittsburgh Hearts, GB has a children's album coming out. "It's true," explains Lord Grunge. "It's a side project called Gorilla and Fox, and we do cute, accessible pop songs for people of all ages. We have one about a lost cat and one about a tree house. People really seem to go apeshit over them."
Grand Buffet brings its East Coast party to the Lounge for one night only, and Lord Grunge wants everyone to know the party rules: "You have to have the right tunes, make sure there's enough blow to go around, and make sure the room isn't bugged."
