South Florida's own The Heavy Pets played a hometown show at The Funky Biscuit in Boca
Raton on Thursday night that saw the band dust off three songs that hadn't been performed
since bassist Tony D'Amato joined the band and debut a pair of new originals.
Heavy Pets originals "Precious Mind," "Pleasure Tank" and "Bye Bye Sunrise" - which were
each played in Boca - had all been on the shelf since D'Amato came aboard two years ago.
The show also saw the debuts of the D'Amato-penned "Strawberry Mansion" and the Jeff
Lloyd-penned "Ibis." The owner of The Funky Biscuit, Albert Poliak, celebrated his
birthday by guesting with The Pets on "Help Me Help You."
