Last night started what has become an annual New Year’s run at NYC’s Best Buy Theater for the Disco Biscuits. After two solid showing in Chicago at the Concord Music Hall, the band was primed and ready to go. Taking the stage and playing a little bluesy ditty to get started, the band went right into “Bernstein & Chasnoff,” which had a great outro jam that led into a “Voices Insane” bustout (it’s only been played twice this year, and seen a serious decline in show appearances the last five years) that was super funky. “Pilin’ It Higher” brought an overall increase in room temperature, as beads of sweat began to form on many bodies. The age old saying IS right!

Second set was solid. Anytime “I-Man” makes an appearance, it typically signals a good time. Especially when it is sandwiched between “House Dog Party Favor.” I’ll take one of those, please and thank you! “Catalyst” received a warm welcome from the crowd, and ended the second set properly. A “Spy” encore led into the ending of “November Rain” (similar to the November 24th, 2006 Hammerstein show).

Oh, and then then Tractorbeam at BB King’s happened. Yeah….about that. Straight extra filthy, lyric-less Biscuits. Super fun to see them throw down at BB’s once again, and the set was fire. Didn’t let up from start to finish, and people got down hard, with a setlist that consisted of “Ladies>Orch Theme>Tricycle>Ladies,” bookended by “Confrontation.”

See you back out there tonight.
