Back by Popular Demand, [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits Returns to Brooklyn (5/19/17)

Breaking Biscuits

Tomorrow night, jamtronica supergroup Breaking Biscuits (stylized [Br]eaking [Bi]sciuts) takes over every local’s favorite venue, the Brooklyn Bowl. The supergroup comprised of Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee of Break Science and Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits debuted last year for another Brooklyn event, Brooklyn Comes Alive, and to the delight of many fans they’ve returned this year with a string of shows, as well as two performances at the upcoming Electric Forest Music Festival.

Each member of the super group is not only a master of their respective instrument, but also well-known for playing with a wide array of musicians in the scene. While not playing keys for his trance-fusion quartet, Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits has performed alongside Bill Kreutzmann in his project Billy and The Kids. Additionally, Magner and Brownstein play together all the time in their various Biscuit side projects like Electron and Conspirator, so it’s no wonder the two have unmatched chemistry and an immense performance history. Master of bass Marc Brownstein is an NYC-born musician, so we’re expecting him to bring the heat while performing on his home turf. Last time Brownie and Magner played in NYC was a late-night Electron show where they performed Marc’s entire rock opera, Chemical Warfare Brigade, in its entirety for only the 8th time in Biscuits/Electron history.

Opening for [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits each night is local NYC jamtronica band, Space Bacon. Bacon will bring their own unique blend of groove-based dance rock to The Bowl at 8:30 pm sharp, so don’t be late.

Borahm Lee and Adam Deitch of Break Science, both NYC musicians, also have a history of playing with various projects including funk machine Lettuce and the leading livetronica act, Pretty Lights Live. Lee’s mixed style of jazzy-yet-funky trip hop keys and Deitch’s dexterous drumming paired with Brownie and Magner’s masterful styles, refined over the last 20 years, is a recipe for a stellar showcase tonight.

Last year for Brooklyn Comes Alive, the supergroup played a cover-heavy show – here’s the setlist:
“Robot Rock” (Daft Punk)
“La Femme D’argent” (Air)
“Building Steam with a Grain of Salt” (DJ Shadow)
“Rolf Royce” (Tosca)
“Little Fluffy Clouds” (The Orb)
“The Horror” (RJD2)

Here’s a video of [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits playing The Orb’s “Little Fluffy Clouds” from last year’s Brooklyn show. After a performance like that, all bet’s are off on what they may play tonight. The only thing that’s for sure is this is not a show to miss.
