The Disco Biscuits return to NYC for New Years

Announced yesterday, The beloved trance-fusion quartet, The Disco Biscuits, will be returning to The PlayStation Theater for a four-night run, leading up to a new years eve show. The PlayStation theater, fondly remembered as The Nokia or Best Buy by many of us has hosted 32 Disco Biscuits shows in the past and is set to host another historic New Years Run. Is there a better place to celebrate with The Biscuits than Time Square? The Shows are set to be late nights, so prepare to be up late with The Biscuits! Openers have yet to be announced, but will likely come soon.

With 13 shows left in the year, we’d like to look back at some of our favorite sets of the year. 2017 has been a great year for the band. Playing some great runs, another historic Camp Bisco, and some energetic festival appearances, it’s without a doubt a great time to be a fan of The Disco Biscuits.

2/2/17 The Filmore Philadelphia

Set 1: Biscuits Are Coming Home > I-Man> Vassillios> Abraxas(inv)> Run Like Hell> Biscuits Are Coming Home

Starting off the year in Philadelphia this set was perfect. Great flow and great jamming throughout. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

2/4/17 The Filmore Philadelphia

Set 2: Mindless Dribble> Crickets(inv)> Basis For A Day(dys), Spectacle, Basis For A Day(dys)> And The Ladies Were The Rest Of The Night

An energy-packed closing set for to close the smoking run, this set brought an amazing run to an appropriately amazing end. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

Set 1: Jam> Papercut> Aceetobee> Tempest> Aceetobee, Confrontation> Rock Candy(unf)> Confrontation
Set 2: I-Man> Cyclone> Little Betty Boop(inv)> Loose Change> I-Man

This entire show is some of the finest playing from The Biscuits in recent years. Patient and funky jams all night, tight and energetic segues and make this show stand out as exceptional. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

5/29/17 Summer Camp Music Festival

Story Of The World, M.E.M.P.H.I.S.> Basis For A Day> Tricycle> Aceetobee(inv)> Basis For A Day> I-Man(unf)>Basis For A Day

Sometimes festival sets don’t turn out as good as a serious fan might have hoped. This was not one of those times. The Peak in the Basis For A Day> I-Man jam has unmatched energy that could only have been found playing late night, to close out a festival that the band had not played since 2006. There is a serious lack of video from this show, but it is available to stream and download via nugs.net.

6/01/17 The Ogden Theater

Set 2: Sister Judy’s Soul Shack, Nughuffer> Orch Theme> Aceetobee(mid)> Nughuffer, House Dog Party Favor

This set started off fun, then got down to serious jamming business. The first set of this show is also stellar and shouldn’t be overlooked. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

7/14/17 Camp Bisco

Set 2: Solstice> Spacebirdmatingcall> Gangster> Spacebirdmatingcall, M.E.M.P.H.I.S.> Controversy> Bombs> Svenghali (end)

This set was one of the best sets of Camp Bisco, Solstice> Spacebird> Gangster> Spacebird brought some seriously progressive grooves. This set and the rest of Camp Bisco 2017 is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

9/21/17 Irving Plaza

Set 2: Morph Dusseldorf> Little Betty Boop(inv)> Digital Buddha> Abraxas(inv)> Morph Dusseldorf

Amazing flow front to back. Patient but still soaring energy. 1st set of this show is also not to be missed. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

9/22/17 Coney Island Amphitheater

Floodlights> Cyclone> Above The Waves(inv)> Floodlights, House Dog Party Favor

Now nicknamed “The Hurricane sequence” Floodlights> Cyclone> Above The Waves(inv)> Floodlights is one of the most powerful jamming sequences of the year. Traversing through jamming styles and tying songs together perfectly, and ending with a nailed HDPF, this set is not to be overlooked. The whole show is available to stream on The Disco Biscuits Youtube channel!

With all the amazing music The Biscuits have brought us this year, we can’t help getting excited for New Years, and even sooner, 2 nights in Worchester Mass for Halloween.
