Grand Buffet

9 p.m. Thursday, November 26. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

"St. Louis, happy Thanksgiving! Let's get druck and funk," says Grand Buffet frontman Lord Grunge, who's put down his PSP long enough to zap a few e-mail zingers from the road. The Pittsburgh indie-rap group is still unjustly best known for its freeform stage show, which is equal parts improv shtick and verbal mixed-martial arts. (GB also plays fast and loose with samples, using loops from Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry" or the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat.") This tour, the act is playing two-thirds of its latest LP, King Vision, a musically sophisticated disc stuffed with keyboards programmed to emulate '80s analog synths. But Grunge says the Thanksgiving-night set will be a special holiday-themed gig. "I'm going to fuck a turkey on stage," types Grunge. "JK! JK, JK, JK. OMG. JK. Nothing special has been determined yet, but there will be specialness, for sure."
