Full Gallery: Load remaining images The Disco Biscuits wrapped up a strong three night stand at their home festival, Camp Bisco, yesterday. The band added one set per day, starting with one on Thursday, two on Friday, and three on Saturday. Naturally, with six full sets, the band dug deep into their catalog and pulled out some great music.With three full sets yesterday, the band got things started with a down home daytime set. As Biscuits fans made their way down to the main stage, they were treated to an opening “Pygmy Twylyte” jam that wound its way into the classic “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a,” this time played inverted. They kept things grooving in that daytime set with a bust out cover of “Viola Lee Blues,” a Cannon’s Jug Stompers song most known for its role in Grateful Dead setlists. The jam surely harkened back to the Biscuits time playing with the Dead drummers, but they kept things raging at Bisco with a “Shelby Rose -> Little Betty Boop” to close the set.Watch the full set footage below, courtesy of UphoricTV:The two following sets brought more of the Biscuits heat to their festival, bringing out familiar tunes like “Sweating Bullets,” “Aceetobee,” “Little Shimmy in a Conga Line,” “Basis For A Day” and more. They closed out the festival with a soaring version of “Story of the World” as their encore. What a show!Watch sets two and three of the final night, below.
With Umphrey’s McGee’s mash up album ZONKEY due out on November 11th, the band has been sharing individual tracks from their new release. The band has been cleverly combining cover songs by different bands for many years now, though ZONKEY marks the first such effort in the studio.The newest track to premiere (via Relix) is “Electric Avenue To Hell,” a mash-up of Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue” and AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell,” with parts of UM’s original “The Triple Wide” as well. The track features Jennifer Hartswick on vocals, a fact that instantly elevates any studio cut.Take a listen to the newest ZONKEY track to debut, below.
Earlier this week, The New Mastersounds encountered the Standing Rock protests firsthand while traveling from Montana to Minnesota. The band checked into their hotel and found officers in the parking lot, gearing up to take on peaceful protestors with combat fatigues and weaponry. Naturally, the band knew they had to do something, and decided to donate half of the money raised from their show in Minneapolis, MN last night to Stand With Standing Rock.Guitarist Eddie Roberts tells the full story.“Tuesday night, on our long drive from Montana to Minneapolis, we found ourselves in a horrible situation. As we checked into our hotel for the night, we walked into a disturbing scene… a parking lot full of militarized police, head-to-toe in combat fatigues, loaded up with weapons, as they prepared for their next strike on Standing Rock’s peaceful protestors. The temperature was freezing, and the display of violent force was intimidating.Given the escalating violence of the last few days and our own experience, we (The New Mastersounds) have decided to donate half the money from last night’s show to the Standing Rock Sioux.Our thoughts go out to the Standing Rock protestors on this Thanksgiving day.”You can find out more information about, and donate to, Stand with Standing Rock, by heading here.

Back in September, Live For Live Music talked to Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits about the two bands’ ongoing prank war with one another. The friendly prank war has been going on for a while now between the two jam giants, with past retaliations including lowering dildos from the ceiling during shows and, over the summer, Umphrey’s using a photo of a passed-out Jon “Barber” Gutwillig on their all-access credentials.EXCLUSIVE: Joel Cummins Talks Umphrey’s/Biscuits Prank War And Post-World Series Hang With The CubsEXCLUSIVE: The Disco Biscuits’ Aron Magner Talks Prank War With Umphrey’s, Spotify, And BCALast weekend, The Disco Biscuits rounded out their three-night Colorado run with a final performance at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium. During the fiery final show of the run, the jamtronica juggernauts offered up a stand-out performance with highlights throughout—including snow machines firing off toward the tail end of second set and an extravagant show-closing encore of Edvard Greig‘s famous late 1800’s orchestral composition “In The Hall of the Mountain King” (marking the group’s first rendition of the piece since 7/10/04 [643 shows]).Disco Biscuits Cover Ginuwine, Make It Snow Indoors In Colorado Finale [Full Video]However, one particularly hilarious moment during the over-the-top show came during the second set, when the band offered up an out-of-field and ridiculous cover of Ginuwine’s “Same Ol’ G” coming out of “Crickets” . Continuing the long-running joke and prank war with Umphrey’s, Barber changed the lyrics of the song to reference the incident that landed him on Umphrey’s laminates. You can watch the video of the Biscuits’ cover of Ginuwine’s “Same Ol’ G”, plus read the new and improved lyrics to the 90’s hit tune below, as posted by bassist Marc Brownstein on Facebook. Disco Biscuits’ lyrics for “Same Ol’ G”, 11/18/2017: I used to be the main one touring,But now I choose to stay at home.Most of my friends still touring,This time the G’s full grown.And I think about my future lately,Whatever that may be.And now it’s pretty clear to me,That I can just be G.I went to the show to see Umphrey’s McGee,I went backstage and I feel asleep,Paparazzi taking pictures of me,And you know I was barely free.Them boys aint got nothing on me,I did the laminate all for free,I ain’t changed and I’ll always beThe same ol GIf I want to play a party,1000 people come along.And I wear a 1 piece jumpsuit,Cause I can just zip that on.[Photo: Rios Photos]
Today, for the 71st edition of Taper Tuesday, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has released the soundboard audio for their stunning Midwest winter tour closer. The show, performed on February 18th at Madison, Wisconsin’s Orpheum Theatre, was near flawless, chockful of the band’s innovative improvisations. Perhaps the high point of the night, however, was the band’s second set, where they laid out a truly stunning rendition of the Grateful Dead’s “Terrapin Suite”, ahead of the frame’s standout set-closing rendition of “Morning Dew”.As previously reported, “Unlike the three previous shows, the band didn’t warm up with a long jam. Instead, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead took the stage, and guitarist Tom Hamilton immediately started picking the instantly identifiable notes to ‘Althea’.” The band’s take on “Althea” led into “Gonesville”, a song off Bob Weir‘s 2016 solo effort, Cold Mountain, which JRAD debuted in April during their spectacular arena debut at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado. From there, the band moved through “Cumberland Blues” and “Row Jimmy”, with each number housing a number of wild teases, before landing in the set-closing combination of “Jack Straw” and “Tennessee Jed”.After set break, the band returned with a dark, set-opening rendition of “Let It Grow”, followed by a gorgeous performance of “Crazy Fingers”. A seamless transition into “Estimated Prophet” came next, which was used as a springboard for an extended transition led by bassist Dave Dreiwitz. To the delight of the crowd, the band next laid out a triumphant rendition of the multi-song composition, “Terrapin Suite”. “Lady With A Fan” and the “Terrapin Station” segments were arguably the evening’s best moments, with the two parts executed flawlessly. However, “At A Siding’ was similarly wonderful, though the band used it as a vehicle for a more spacey jam.From there, the band moved out of the awe-worthy refrain of “Terrapin Suite”, landing in another fan-favorite,”Morning Dew”. As with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s goosebump-inducing take on the song during their rescheduled show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre last August, guitarist Tom Hamilton sang the first verse a capella to an eerily quiet and truly captivated audience. The song also saw an ethereal duet between Hamilton and keyboardist Marco Benevento, which served as a perfect sendoff for the audience ahead of the band’s encore of “Drums” into “Samson & Delilah”.You can check out the setlist and stream Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s show at the Orpheum Theatre on February 18th, 2018, below, courtesy of Peter Costello and Eric McRoberts.Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | Orpheum Theatre | Madison, WI | 2/18/2018Set One (8:38PM – 9:56PM): Althea, Gonesville -> Cumberland Blues @, Row Jimmy -> St. Stephen Jam -> Jack Straw, Tennessee JedSet Two (10:26PM – 12:14AM?): Let It Grow -> Crazy Fingers -> Estimated Prophet -> Terrapin Station: Lady with a Fan -> Terrapin Station -> Terrapin -> Terrapin Transit -> At a Siding -> Terrapin Flyer -> Refrain > Morning DewEncore: Drums -> Samson & Delilah@ – With Dark Star Teases (MB)# – With Playing in the Band Teases (TH)
On April 21st, the beloved Colorado-based live-electronic trio SunSquabi performed the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, co-headlining the iconic outdoor venue for the first-time ever along with Opiuo. During the packed-out performance, which served as a hometown throwdown for the band and fans, SunSquabi showcased their versatility, standout musicianship, and ever-evolving sound, proving why they are one of the most quickly rising ensembles on the scene.On Friday, SunSquabi will officially release their newest full-length live album, Live At Red Rocks, which allows listeners to relive this historic performance from the band’s history. Across the 80-minute, 12-song set, the group offers an electric performance, heavy on danceable grooves and blistering guitar riffs. With contagious energy and boundary-pushing improvisations, the album is a must-hear for long-time fans and new listeners curious to see what the SunSquabi buzz is all about.As Kevin Donohue explained, “Coming home from one of the best tours that we have ever been on and going straight into this show was a really incredible feeling.” He continued, “All of that fresh energy, as well as having our friends and family on stage with us that night, was truly the greatest feeling ever.”During the band’s highly anticipated Red Rocks performance, the trio of Donohue (guitar, keys, production), Josh Fairman (bass, synth), and Chris Anderson (drums) augmented their lineup, inviting special guests to join them across the performance. Toward the end of the show, during takes on “Cinnamon”, “Just A Little”, and “Pygmy Up”, the band welcomed Nicholas Gerlach (saxophone), Will Trask (percussion), Eric Luba (keys), Leah Druzinsky (vocals), and Darryl Abrahamson (Trumpet), further bolstering SunSquabi’s powerful sound.Live At Red Rocks features three unreleased tracks, giving listeners the opportunity to hear the tunes before studio renditions are formally released—incluing “Chrysalis” and “Night Moth”, the final two unreleased songs in a trio inspired by the biological process of metamorphosis that will get their official studio release on a full EP due out this fall. The show also opens with fan favorites like “Deluxe” and “Pablito” and closes with a stand-out, one-two hit of “Pangolin”, another previously unreleased track, and “Sticky”.Live For Live Music is proud to present its readers with an early listen to SunSquabi’s Live At Red Rocks.
