Aron Magner Plays a Child Size Piano as Disco Biscuits Wrap Up Best Buy Run

The Disco Biscuits returned to the Best Buy Theater for the final night of their four-night run—and penultimate show of their New Year’s run—last night.

The band worked an unfinished “Shem-Rah Boo” into their first set before wrapping up the “Astronaut” that they began during Friday’s performance. That first set also saw Aron Magner hop behind a child sized piano that had been placed at the front of the stage for a rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker classic “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.”

The second set opened with a cover of Men Without Hats’ “Safety Dance” that played into an unfinished “Basis for a Day” that segued into “Cyclone.” An inverted “Above the Waves” then became a set closing “Munchkin Invasion” that included teases of “Sabre Dance.” The show finally came to a close with “Frog Legs” at close to 4am.
