Going to California: The Disco Biscuits Announce
Nine-Day Golden State Tour, Including Two Weekends
Band Will Visit the West Coast for the First Time Since 2007

The Disco Biscuits :: 12.31 by Borrell
The Disco Biscuits will make their first California appearance since 2007, heading west for seven performances capped off by a pair of weekend shows at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on April 11 and 12. The run kicks off with a performance at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco on April 3, followed by stops in, Crystal Bay, NV, Eureka, CA, Santa Cruz, CA, and San Diego. Tickets for all shows are on sale through BiscoTix (www.DiscoBiscuits.com) on Friday, January 16, and from Ticketmaster on Friday, January 23.

In what is shaping up to be a landmark year with a return to many favorite cities not visited for some time, The Disco Biscuits are set to tour extensively in anticipation of their forthcoming album. As they put the finishing touches on the new release with the help of longtime friends and collaborators, the band continues to explore new and exciting creative ideas with Grammy Award winning hip-hop duo Don Cheegro and Dirty Harry, showing why the Biscuits remain on the cutting edge of contemporary music and the scene they created.

A rejuvenating trip to Jamaica for Caribbean Holidaze (check out our pics here) and a monumental, five-night New Year's run at New York City's Nokia Theatre (read our NYE review here) leave the band poised to tackle one of their most prolific touring periods in the last decade. No less than 38 shows are scheduled between January 16 and April 11.

The Disco Biscuits will be joined on the California tour by good friend and Twisted Records artist Ott, the U.K.'s master of Psy-Dub. Ott will be playing all of the shows on the West Coast, except for Saturday night in LA. Check DiscoBiscuits.com in the coming weeks for information on official after parties and other details.

With the band gearing up for Winter Tour, there is another East Coast date to confirm. The Disco Biscuits will visit Portland, ME for a show at Port City Music Hall on Wednesday, February 25. Tickets for this show will also be available through BiscoTix (www.DiscoBiscuits.com) on Friday, January 16, and from Ticketmaster on Friday, January 23.

come on up for a 2 night run in Portland, Oregon at The Crystal Ballroom, Wonder Ballroom, or any place, even the Doug Fir Lounge.

Just get your butts up here already! Seattle has been jonesin' for you guys to come up and play for years. Let's see some NW love!

I would go to the first ave show... but three nights of Umphreys is way better... so i might save my money... I am starting to like Bisco more and more... I liked them a lot, up there with STS9 and then I saw them live at Rothbury... and my friend and I were standing there listening to them play the same three notes... not even chords, over and over and over for about fifteen minutes... I have seen the rest of the show on iclips and it gets better... but im not sure if I could musically handle a full-show of theirs... of course they have a huge druggie following which explains a lot of their fanbase... but more power to them, I would rather see them than nothing....

HEY FURTHERFARMER is that you standing next to warren, thats cool i love warren, on the other hand if that is you, a grown ass man, it is pathetic that you are online at ten in the morning w/ nothing to do but read an article informing people on a tour of a band you obviously dont care for. are you in search of work or your job is just that mindlessly dull?

either way im glad im not you

If the biscuits come to Portland it will be @ The Roseland for sure. Doug Fir and Wonder Ballroom are way to small - If there going small they should play the Goodfoot - they would rip the roof off of that place.

Biscuits have the most complete and legit tour out of everyone in the scene right now. This is probably one of the best tours Ive seen from them in a long time.

That's sweet, This, in my opinion is the band to see right now. They keep the setlists different from night to night, throwing in inverted jams and all sorts of insanity. Bonnaroo last year was sick and I can't wait for ATL on the 31 and then again in Charleston, it is going to be a good year!!!

Saw Bisco on Friday and Saturday for the last times. Absolute garbage. 5+ "kidZ" taken out on stretchers. Multiple arrests, etc. The music is almost getting as bad as the scene itself.
