On Thursday night, The Disco Biscuits kicked off their first full tour in years at McKees Rocks, PA’s Roxian Theatre.
Following an opening set by recent jam scene darlings Goose (watch the full set here), The Disco Biscuits took the stage for their two-set headlining performance. After a show-opening “Little Betty Boop” > “Pimp Blue Rikki” > “Little Betty Boop” combo, the band moved into their first new song debut of the night, “Hero”, before once again returning to “Little Betty Boop” to complete the segment.
Despite battling through sound latency issues throughout the show, the first set continued from there with “Bernstein And Chasnoff” > “Miracles” (inverted) > “Rocket Science” (yet another new tune) before returning to “Bernstein And Chasnoff” to cap the first frame.
After a lengthy setbreak, the band returned for their second set with “Spaga”. Another new song, “Stars In The Sky”, was up next, before an extended “Spraypaint” sandwich infused with the final debut of the night, “Anthem”, brought the encore-less show to a close.
The Disco Biscuits tour continues tonight, Friday, November 15th, with a second performance at the Roxian featuring support from The Fritz. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, head here.
