At this summer's Gathering Of The Vibes, The Disco Biscuits
will team with Grateful Dead drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann for a set at the
festival. Apparently tDB are gearing up for the performance already as last night they
covered a Dead song at Irving Plaza in NYC.
The Disco Biscuits are currently in the middle of a three-night stand at Irving Plaza and
after taking Throwback Thursday to the extreme for the
first night, Friday's second show of the run saw the band debut their take on "Viola Lee
Blues" to kick off the closing stanza. The quartet offered their own spin on the early
Dead tune, complete with a lengthy jam. Just as they did on Thursday, tDB opened last
night's show with another four-song first set.
Here's a look at the setlist from last night's show:
Set One: Above the Waves > Mindless Dribble > Crickets > Home Again
Set Two: Viola Lee Blues, Kamaole Sands > Confrontation (inv) > Kamaole sands, On
Story of the World (inv) > Spacebird
We'll be sure to keep our eyes out for video or audio of tDB's "Viola Lee Blues." UPDATE:
The first fan-shot video of the cover (and the entire second set) comes courtesy of Matt
meantime video of nearly all of Thursday's show has surfaced thanks to Matt
The Disco Biscuits return to Irving Plaza for another sold-out show tonight.
