A Moon-based band is in tune with the Christmas season — and giving back to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Chip & The Charge Ups has released a new song, “Black and Gold Christmas” to celebrate Pittsburgh pride designed and T-shirt that goes along with the song. All proceeds from T-shirt sales will be donated to the food bank. Shirts can be purchased at the food bank or store.

“Back in July, it just kind of hit me that it would be really cool to do a Pittsburgh-themed Christmas song,” said Chip Dominick of Chip & The Charge Ups, who appeared on this week’s Food Podcast. “Before I knew it, we were in the midst of summer with a Pittsburgh-themed song that we couldn’t wait to get out there and give as a gift to our city.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
