The Disco Biscuits kicked off the three-show Road to Camp Bisco tour at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club last night. The show was not only the band’s first US date in 2012 but also their first gig since late January. In a recent interview with Relix and Jambands.com, Marc Brownstein promised the band would focus on their older catalog material during the upcoming tour.
“Our hardcore old school fans always give us shit for playing new music anyway,” Brownstein said. “So I just feel like the right thing to do is play our older songs this week. We are not going to just run through the hits though—everything’s on the table. Everything’s rare- when you play six shows every six months, nothing is overplayed.”
Opening with a “Helicopters” fake out that moved into “King of the World,” the Disco Biscuits offered a number of their classic songs throughout the night. The group’s entire first set consisted of favorites from the band’s first decade before original drummer Sam Altman left the band. The Biscuits second set also featured longtime favorites like “Morph Dusseldorf” and “I-Man.” Both sets boasted numerous segues and interlocking songs. As a treat, the band encored with their first “Frog Legs” since September of 2010.
The Disco Biscuits will perform in Atlantic City, NJ this evening. Click here to read Brownstein’s recent interview on the band’s future.
