The Return of Electron
Electron, the supergroup featuring The Disco Biscuits Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner, Tom Hamilton and Joe Russo, will reunite for a performance at Denvers Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on May 11. Brownstein first assembled the group during his hiatus from the Disco Biscuits in 2000, but rejoined his estranged bandmates before Electron played its fist show. Brownstein did, however, use Electron to debut his rock opera The Chemical Warfare Brigade in August of 2000.
Electron has only played a limited number of dates since then, but did release the live album This is Electron in 2005. Though the group last performed together during a Langerado late night show in 2006, the four musicians will hit the road together in various configurations this spring as part of the Twisted Conspiracy Tour. According to Brownstein, This show is going to feature some really rare songs and we are even considering bringing back the whole opera (if Joe gets his way we will learn ‘Three Wishes’ this week and do it)! Brownstein and Russo will both perform at the 7th Jammy Awards this evening.
