Jamtronica pioneers the Disco Biscuits returned to Arizona for the first time since 2002
yesterday for a set at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival in Phoenix's Margaret T. Hance
Park. The Biscuits had some fun with the evening's setlist as they only played songs that
start with the letter "S," with one exception...kinda.
The quartet's kicked off the set with "Strobelights and Martinis." By the time they
followed up with "Story Of The World" and "Spacebirdmatingcall," it was easy to see a
pattern emerging. "Little Shimmy In A Conga Line" is the only song of the set that doesn't
start with "S," though both band and many fans call it "Shimmy," so we'll give them a
pass. An inverted "Svenghali" with elements of the rarely-played Aucoin/Magner jam "Moshi
Fameus" led into a cover of "The Safety Dance" and the end of "Story Of The World." The
Disco Biscuits brought their evening to a close with another "S" song - "Save The Robots."
You may recall that Phish played an "S" show of their own back on September 2, 2011 at
Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO.
