Benjamin Franklin Introduces The Disco Biscuits in Philly

The Disco Biscuits kicked off last night’s show at the Electric Factory in true Philadelphia style when a man dressed as the great Benjamin Franklin introduced their debut cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy.”

Last night’s show also featured a number of other highlights, including an inverted “Bernstein and Chasnoff,” the first “Rainbow Song” since October 4, 2012 and the first rendition of Nirvana’s “Lithium” since the 2009 High Sierra Music Festival.

As previously reported, the Disco Biscuits have returned to the Electric Factory for their first shows at the venue since the 2009. The band, who have played the club over 20 times since 1997, were also recently honored with a mural in the upstairs men’s bathroom. They will wrap up their three-night run at the Electric Factory tonight.
