Listen To The Disco Biscuits Live At Brooklyn Bowl Vegas 10/29/21 via Nugs.Net

What’s up, everyone. Hope you had a great week.

Brandon here, BroBible’s publisher. Most of my work at this here website is behind the scenes these days, but every now and then I crack my knuckles and fire-up WordPress to write about live music and other miscellanies that interest me.

Once upon a time, I used to write about music a lot around these parts. Artists would send me songs, people would ask me to post their playlists. I’d blog about the ins and out of what’s going on in the jam band world. Sometimes I’d write about show. It was a good time.

Then I got busy in the BroBible back office and my blogging had to take a backseat to more important aspects of our day-to-day operation.

That doesn’t mean I don’t miss it. I miss it dearly. I like the silly little niche we’ve carved out for ourselves in jam band media. We’re mostly a sports and culture website, but hey – sometimes it’s wildly fun to write about something like, say, Billy Strings too. I’ve always believed leaning into these little idiosyncrasies makes our brand of digital licorice stand out from the blandness of other digital publishers.

That’s why I want to put a show from The Disco Biscuits on your radar. The Biscuits just finished a dizzying three-night run at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. I use the word “dizzying” because I’m not sure how else I’d describe pulling a music doubleheader on Friday and Saturday night. Absorbing all that music leaves one feeling pretty damn good, albeit exhausted in the best possible way.

For an old millennial fart like me, it’s a reminder that the ole Phish > Biscuits monorail daily-double isn’t for the weak – It’s practically a dance marathon.

The Friday show, on 10/29 (but really, the wee vampire hours of the morning on 10/30), was the first I’ve been able to catch the Biscuits since their two-night run at The Riv in Chicago back in January 2020, just a couple of months before the world shut down.

It was pure nirvana to experience live Biscuits again. Musically, these improvisational soundscape pioneers are throttled up and dialed in. If you were there or want to chase some of that pure Biscuits bliss, you can now listen to the show in its entirety right now via Nugs.net.

A few notes:

  • That opener. The last five minutes of Mindless Dribble are a quantum spaceship that blasts off into another astral plane.
  • The deep-space trance supernova keeps going all throughout Spacebirdmatingcall. we 2.0.
  • The groove they lock into coming out of Astronaut > Running Into The Night is such a diabolically fun dance groove.
  • Helicopter! Look out below!!
  • If Ridley Scott ever gets around to making Blade Runner 2069, I really hope he licenses this Abraxas jam for the soundtrack. Jam is just so filthy. Magner going off on those synth patches is unstoppable.
  • I met a long-time acquaintance from Phish Twitter while waiting for an Uber after the show, around 4:45 AM. He said he was unfamiliar with the Biscuits but had a great time – I told him he got a show with Helicopters in it, so think of it like a Phish show with Tweezer. Just impossible to not enjoy yourself.

Anyway, that’s enough gushing from me. Just a great time with some of my best friends in the world dancing to the trance-y live music we’ve loved since age 18.

Doesn’t get any better than that. Keep the fires burning, Biscuits – B4L
