i like the idea of a leap year run, pretty original. I dont know some people like to use drugs, i like to drink fifths of vodka...to each his own.

What bugs me most about jambase.com are the people that use it as a place to rip apart bands. Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but do we really have to be such downers when most of these bands are trying to bring us ALL to a happier place in our minds. I'm guessing something has worked for the Disco Biscuits to have been together for 12 years. Go back to your room and listen to "Frampton Comes Alive."

4 stars because I can't make it...will be in Mpls for 3 nights of UM.

Sounds awesome, but after what happened last year, I'm never going back to the Starland. I love Bisco, but do yourself a favor and stay far away from this venue guys. The leap year run is an awesome idea though!

Last time i checked every jamband has a drug scene. Bisco fans may have a bigger drug scene than others but atleast their band members dont get so fucked up that they cant tour anymore. ie jerry and trey. Dont get me wrong i am a huge dead and phish fan but why do people feel the need to talk shit about the scene. If u dont like one band or their scene dont go to the shows. Dont even read the reviews or article if ur gonna be a negative bitch about it. That means u cuttyfives, sci freak, dready knows best, liberalsforsomebitchassin2008 and any other haters that feel the need to bash on other bands for no reason. U dont see any of the bisco and umphreys fans bashing on dmb or gov't mule or whatever u listen to. I am not a huge biscuits fan but i am not gonna talk shit about the people that go to their shows. Lame.

^^^^ wahahahaha too funny, I'm already getting bashed on.... No seriously though, I was gonna say the nights in CO could bring down the house, and it is true that all the bands that Jam usually have the same scene, and drugs are a big part of it. Now certain drugs that I've seen as Disco are wacko, what happened the headies,and good hits??

Great Another 3 night run I can'r go to. Why do the biscuits unleash the GUIDO forces of south Jersey on us. These guys beat down people. They make everyone miss the first set so they can grab your nuts and your girls chest. These guys knocked down at least three women trying to get to people smoking last year. They don't even say excuse me. they knock peoples heads into the bars. The owner hates our fans and gets off on turning people in high numbers over to the police. Ban this place and SHAME ON BISCO FOR PUNISHING THEIR FANS LIKE THIS. THEY KEPT 500 people sitting in a blizzard for 2 hours last year.

dirty south, dirtier north east.

bisco is fine with me, I like to hear John on guitar. No he is not the greatest, but I like his trancy style. as far as drugs go, those are for idiots, Kids have no clue about consequences nor do they care. they will all amount to nothing but foodstamps.

I enjoyed the show I got summer 2007 with bisco in ATL. I would go see them again if they come back south. peace ya'll.

It would be best if everyone avoided this show altogether. 1-the place is in a school zone and that means 3x's the penalty. 2-starland packs hippies in like cattle...I've written about the scene for three years now and it gets worse every year...warning do not attend this run!

Great. They play the same East Coast places, ignore MOST of the USA, and then go to Europe and Scadanavia. Who books these tours? Are they afraid of the West Coast, the Southwest, the Midwest???????????

There are tons of Bisco fans in places other than the East Coast!!!!!

If you want to stay away, stay away. Jersey isn't for the faint of heart. Some of us love the grime, and I say bisco can do grimey with the best of them. Who's comin with me?

Hey guys i love the biscos, but i must warn you. BEWARE, and be prepared to be profiled by undercover pigs. Do not drink in the parking lot unless you feel like getting arrested for open container. Last year i went to this venue for the biscos and i got arrested myself, and watched about ten others around me get arrested, while i had simple marijuana possession they took me down for booking, and i watched the sick pigs let my neighbor in the parking lot go with mushrooms. Just made him dump them out. Fucking police

You pathetic people act like the Disco Biscuits invented drugs? If you haven't noticed, people have been doing drugs and going to shows for a half a century! No one says that YOU HAVE TO DO DRUGS in order to see Bisco...I've seen them SOBER several times, and still had a blast! These are all the same people that were talking trash all over the Camp Bisco board before this years festival. Well guess what, Camp Bisco was one of the most laid back, problem free, festivals I've ever been to....and by the way, All Good and Langerado were wayyyyy shadier festivals....Keep wasting your time and energy on hate, I'll keep having the best times of my life with THE DISCO BISCUITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I've never heard soo many bad things about a venue, sounds scary!!! I mean the artist such as Disco and others (moslty Jam Bands) should only book venues where they are friendly, and also understands math. More custumers = more $7 cups = lots of $$$$...... I mean I've never been to any venues where they grab my nuts.

PS- keep it in you're shoes..(out of all the venues I'v been at non have been like "hey you, let me see what between you're socks and your feet"

SCI Freak: At the Umphrey's McGee new years run @the Aragon security at the door was actually reaching into people's shoes & feeling under their socks to confiscate their goods. I have never seen that before at any show or previously at the Aragon but it's going down now.

I Still think Jon is the best guitarist out there for truly psychedelic music.

That's just my opinion.

I expect everyone else may have their own favorite. I just dig his playing.

Saying security anywhere sucks is true, but I go to a lot of shows, and I have never seen anything as bad as the Starland last year. I got there wayyyyyy before the show was supposed to start, and had to wait outside in the freezing cold for like 3 hours, along with a lot of other people, and missed the ENTIRE first set! It was so cold outside I honestly couldn't feel my feet by the time I got inside. The people who run that place are douchebags. DON'T GO BACK TO THE STARLAND! It's just not worth it, they ruined my whole experience.
