The Disco Biscuits keyboardist Aron Magner will bring his relatively new jazz-focused side project, SPAGA, to NYC’s DROM for an afternoon performance on Sunday, December 29th. The show will take place on the day off between the second and third nights of the Biscuits’ four-night run at Playstation Theater, which conveniently lines up with night two of Phish‘s New Year’s Eve run at Madison Square Garden.

The “mostly acoustic” trio, rounded out by string bassist Jason Fraticelli and drummer Matt Scarano, eschews the jam-rock/electronica fusion of the Biscuits for a more classic sound that harkens back to Magner’s jazz background. Now, after many years focused on the exploration of improvisational jam rock with the Biscuits, Magner has returned to his Jazz roots with SPAGA. The band released a self-titled debut album over the summer which featured five original songs and a re-imagined version of The Disco Biscuits’ “Resurrection,” which premiered on Live For Live Music back in June. SPAGA played their first-ever NYC show earlier this month at le poisson rouge, instantly placing them on the must-see list for music fans in the Big Apple.
