Coming soon, we’ll be looking back at some of the amazing music that has transpired over the past few months, and looking forward to live coverage of upcoming Winter/Spring tours from Trey Anastasio Band, Furthur, The Allman Brothers Band, The Disco Biscuits, and many more.

So strap in, welcome to now, and let’s get this show (back) on the road!

All Hallows’ Bisco

All the real phans know that Halloween rivals if not surpasses New Year’s Eve as ‘THE Night’ for live music. This year was no exception with a cornucopia of goodness being thrown down across the country. If you missed it, check out coverage of Phish’s Festival 8 and Gov’t Mule’s ‘Mule-o-Ween‘ and let’s keep the good stuff coming with this psychedelic attack from the Disco Biscuits.

Beaming With Bisco

The Disco Biscuits brought the house down this past Saturday night with a special 3-set show at Starland Ballroom, featuring a raging 3rd set from alter-ego cover band Tractorbeam. Having attended the show, let me say that it is clear the band is determined – to play more shows, longer, with more new material, more new arrangments, and, of course, more fan-favorites new and old. Such was the case on Saturday as the band broke out 2 new tracks from the forthcoming Planet Anthem (one of which, ‘Konkrete’, can be downloaded for free here) along side old-school fan favorites like ‘Stone’, ‘Devil’s Waltz’, and Tractorbeam’d ‘Mr. Don’. All in all, a very tight show with only a few slow moments, give it a whirl and rage with Bisco on their upcoming tour.

Disco Biscuits Tour Kick-Off

Bisco kicked off their massive fall tour last night with their first (and probably last) show at the beautiful Hippodrome Theater in Baltimore, MD. Last night’s setlist looks like straight fire and first reports in are quite positive. Next up is a down and dirty two-night run at the sketch-tastic Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. While Bisco shows at the Starland are always uber-hyped, this weekend’s run is extra special – the band announced just days ago that alter-ego side project Tractorbeam would also play a set on saturday as part of a 3 set show! Additionaly, turntable master RJD2 will be opening up on Sunday night.

Biscuits for Thanksgiving Dinner and New Year’s Dessert

More rumors amuck today – this time in the Bisco camp. Word is the band is making a Thanksgiving weekend homecoming to the Electric Factory in Philly for Friday and Saturday performances on November 27th and 28th. Additionally, rumor has it that the band will return to the Nokia Theater in Times Square, New York City for a 5-NIGHT (!) New Years run.
