The Disco Biscuits: In the Flesh
The Disco Biscuits kicked off of its first national club tour in some time with
a Halloween performance at Bostons Orpheum Theatre. During the groups two set show, the quartet offered up a handful of covers, including Pink Floyds In The Flesh (which the band members have not performed since their Zex Sea days over a decade ago), Carl Orffs O Fortuna (from the play Carmina Burana), and the Rolling Stones You Can’t Always Get What You Want (which featured the Boston Symphony Orchestra Choir on backing vocals). Sean Hennessey, who auditioned for the Disco Biscuits drum spot last year, also played percussion throughout the groups performance, while guitarist Jon Gutwillig debuted a new synthesizer setup. The Disco Biscuits will perform at Ithaca, NYs State Theater tonight.
The Disco Biscuits have also expanded their New Years Eve run to include stops at Baltimores Sonar on December 28 and Philadelphias Theatre of the Living Arts (which the group outgrew on 12/31/99) on December 29.
