The Disco Biscuits will return to Chicago for a New Year’s Eve run at the Riviera Theatre, the band announced on Monday. The three-night stand from the trancefusion pioneers will take place Thursday, December 29th through Saturday, December 31st.
A fan club pre-sale with three-day tickets to The Disco Biscuits’ New Year’s Eve run at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago is open now through Wednesday at 4 p.m. CT. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday at 12 p.m. CT. The Riviera Theatre was the site of The Disco Biscuits’ last pre-pandemic shows in January 2020, before bassist Marc Brownstein‘s eye injury sidelined the band until the onset of the live music shutdown in March.
This newly announced run will mark the jamtronic outfit’s first New Year’s Eve run in Chicago since 2011 when the band performed two nights at the Auditorium Theatre. Since then, Brownstein, Jon “Barber” Gutwillig (guitar, vocals), Aron Magner (keyboards, vocals), and Allen Aucoin (drums) have bounced their year-ending celebration around New York City (2012–15, 2019), Philadelphia (2018, 2021), and a lone year in Atlanta (2016).
The announcement also comes on the heels of the band’s set at the inaugural Sacred Rose festival outside Chicago in nearby Bridgeview. The quartet performed on Saturday among a lineup of Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, Goose, Cory Wong, Orchard Lounge, Lotus, and more. Sunday, the final day of the festival, was set to feature top performers Khruangbin, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Greensky Bluegrass, and Kamasi Washington, but was cut short due to inclement weather.
