The Disco Biscuits Set The Bar High For Night 1 Of Bisco Inferno [Full Video/Photos]

first_imgLast night, The Disco Biscuits opened up the first of four nights for their annual Colorado Bisco Inferno run. At the beginning of each summer, fans near and far travel to see the Biscuits party, generally for multiple nights at Denver’s Ogden Theatre ahead of a Red Rocks Amphitheatre headlining show. This Sunday, The Disco Biscuits have the pleasure of playing one of the country’s favorite open-air amphitheaters, with Spafford and Organ Freeman taking on the opening duties. If last night’s opening show was any indication, fans are in for a very special four nights of music—full of lasers, laughter, and late nights.The Disco Biscuits’ opening set at the Ogden Theatre last night kicked off with a high energy “7-11”, with lighting maestro Johnny R. Goode laying down a concoction of what he does best: lasers and strobe lights (maybe some martinis too). With guitarist Jon “Barber” Guttwillig leading the way on vocals, the four veterans took the jam into deep territory, highlighted by an extended Aron Magner solo on the keys. Up next was a beautiful cover of LCD Soundsystem’s  “Home”. The Disco Biscuits did the Brooklyn rockstars justice, letting the bubbly number fizzle into a deep experimental groove, with Allen Aucoin laying down a mean beat behind the kit.A killer “Sweating Bullets” was next, last played over the Biscuits New Year’s Eve run at New York City’s PlayStation Theatre in Times Square. The Philly natives were locked and loaded, dialing things in with their home-away-from-home crowd. With rainbow lasers bouncing and Marc Brownstein’s bass shaking the room, The Disco Biscuits took things deep before dropping into “Bernstein and Chasnoff”. As an amazing first set came to a close, fans got a chance to have a quick breath of fresh air before the jamtronica titans were back for more.Set two picked up right where set one left off, as they opened with a Biscuits favorite, “M.E.M.P.H.I.S.”. The heavy number was a perfect selection to send the night into astral territory, as the rhythm section of Brownstein and Aucoin locked things in. Barber has been playing phenomenally over the past year, and last night was no exception. The guitar wizard brought it all home, before diving into an inverted “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a”.The quartet was feeling extremely loose after destroying Asheville, North Carolina, last weekend. The band’s decision to play a run the weekend prior to Inferno was a wise one, with no rust or dust in clear sight. Up next was “I Feel Love”, a cover of Donna Summers‘ 1977 disco hit, before throwing down an inverted “And The Ladies Were The Rest Of The Night”. Riding a high, set two came to a close with “Pilin’ It Higher”, as Barber laid down some beautiful and patient licks, allowing the jam to evolve into a beast that could not be contained.Following a nearly three-and-a-half-hour throw down, the band came back out to encore “Magellan Reprise”. The Disco Biscuits’ four-night run has just begun, and things are looking good for Memorial Day weekend in colorful Colorado.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 5/24/2018Set I: 7-11-> Home (LCD Soundsystem)-> Sweating Bullets, Bernstein & ChasnoffSet II: M.E.M.P.H.I.S.-> Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (inverted)-> I Feel Love-> And the Ladies Were the Rest of the Night (inverted)-> Pilin’ it HigherEncore: Magellan RepriseFull Show Video[Video: The Disco Biscuits]You can view a full gallery of photos from the show below via photographer Andrew Rios.last_img
