Tom Hamilton Leads Pink Floyd Tribute, Marc Brownstein’s Son DJs to Packed VIP Tent at Camp Bisco

Brothers Past’s Tom Hamilton led a Pink Floyd tribute with The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner and Nicos Gun’s Jeremy Worthington in the VIP tent at Camp Bisco over the weekend. Disco Biscuits guitarist Jon Gutwillig also sat in during the set for “Breathe” and “Have a Cigar.” VIP guests were also treated to a packed DJ set from Brownstein’s 8 year-old son, who was billed as DJ Miniman. Brownstein took to Facebook to describe the set as “about 45 minutes of heady house.”

This year’s Bisco had a number of other surprises, not least of which was the weather. Atypically clear and sunny skies kept the crowds dry and happy all weekend. However, complications with one of the main stages (it was sinking) forced a number of shows to be rescheduled. Nevertheless, fans of the Disco Biscuits were able to watch a more traditional show on Sunday night, as the set break did not consist of a DJ set, as has been the case at Camp Biscos. World music powerhouse Thievery Corporation was also added at the last minute to replace Animal Collective, who were forced to cancel because of a band illness.
