The Disco Biscuits NYE 2013

The Disco Biscuits have announced that their December 28-29 and 31 shows in New York City will be starting late so they do not conflict with the Phish shows at Madison Square Garden. The December 28-29 shows at the Best Buy Theatre will begin at 11pm and go until 4am. The December 31 show at The Theater at Madsion Square Garden will begin at 11pm and end after 4am. The band made the announcement on their Facebook page today. You can purchase tickets to the Disco Biscuits’ NYE shows here.

Comprised of Jon Gutwillig (vocals/guitar), Marc Brownstein (vocals/bass), Aron Magner (keyboard/vocals), and Allen Aucoin (drums), the quartet continues to bridge the gap between the jamband and electronica/dance worlds by drawing on elements from seemingly disparate genres. This style is referred to generally as trance-fusion. Formed in 1995 at the University of Pennsylvania, the group has quickly emerged as one of the most successful independent bands in the country.

The Disco Biscuits are also well-known for their ability to run long sets together, sometimes even playing their songs backwards, in styles referred to as “inverted” and “dyslexic.” An inverted version of a song occurs when the band starts a song by playing its ending segment, followed immediately by its beginning segment and a jam that segues out of that song and into another. A dyslexic song is played the same way as an inverted one, with its main difference being that the pieces of the song are not played consecutively (e.g. ending of 1 -> 2, 3, 4, beginning of 1 -> 5). Another technique employed by the band is a fakeout, which occurs when the band plays a jam that usually leads into one song, but segues into another unexpectedly.

Due to the separation of their segments, dyslexic songs can begin on one night’s show and end the next night.
