Birds of Satan Record Release Gig Features Guest Appearances by Foo Fighters Members

Birds of Satan Dave Grohl
Kathy Flynn,

On Friday night, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins‘ new band Birds of Satan played their first gig at their record release party at Rock and Roll Pizza in Moorpark, Calif. Yes, that Rock and Roll Pizza, scene of the infamous secret Foo Fighters gig last December. It was an intimate affair with only 70 fans allowed entrance to the quasi-private event.

Birds of Satan (Taylor Hawkins, Wiley Hodgden and Mick Murphy) is the same lineup as Chevy Metal, Taylor Hawkins’ infamous heavy metal cover band, that occasionally features other members of Foo Fighters as members.

Birds of Satan released their first album (available at iTunes) last week, and Friday’s show was a chance to try their original material out in front of a live audience. Taylor joked that when they had called to book the show on Monday, they weren’t sure if they would be able to pull it off, because they hadn’t rehearsed yet.

The hour and a half plus set started off with four original Birds of Satan tunes, and then turned into a full Chevy Metal set, complete with Foo Fighters guest appearances. Pat Smear added guest guitar on ‘Stay With Me,’ and ‘Bitch,’ Nate Mendel played bass on ‘Turning Japanese,’ and Dave Grohl capped out the set, adding his own “Valley rap” to ‘Under Pressure.’
