musically, these cats are constantly improving.

from a dude who's been to numerous Bisco shows but slow to believe, this tour really has re-opened my ears.

Congrats to the Disco Biscuits in solo-headlining Red Rocks. THAT IS TRULY A PROUD ACCOMPLISHMENT! GOOD WORK guys. Now bring the house down. Cheers.

Possibly the dirtiest fans ever, and not in a good way. Red rocks is fun and definitely do not fall down the stairs. I have seen it happen before and while few things are funnier than a spun ass dude falling for minutes on end, it usually ends with a trip to the hospital.

Brownie announce this I think before the 2nd set on Saturday night in Denver. The place exploded. Took me about 8 years, but finally I really dig these guys. That said, there's no way they can sell out Red Rocks, I'm curious to see who they'll bring on for support...Bisco Inferno!

Bisco isn't big enough or badass enough to sell out red rocks. They just played the Odgen for god sakes, they can't even sell out the fillmore which is only 3,000 people. I bet they add two other bands and get that place 75% full. For them it will be cool to play there but not a money making gig. Regardless, I think it is best seeing bisco at a theater and not really sure how their sound will do there. I live in CO, and believe every show at RR is amazing. However, this one gives me a little doubt. Lastly, I will be there to see the music kick off for the summer. Then again it is all warm up for Phish's 4 night run right??

##hey whats up guys, my names lonnie. I hate bisco b/c they dont even sound like phish and the other 3 bands i listen too....when you have a vast musical taste as mine you get to hate on other bands you dont understand while trying too look superior too others on the internet (makes me feel tuff and important you know? give it a try)

BISCO SUCKS....IM GONNA GO LISTEN TO MSG '95 WHICH I HAVE HAD ON REPEAT FOR THE LAST 15 years...

GO PHISH EVERY OTHER BAND SUCKS!

so much hate! i hope insulting a band from a computer is fun for you guys... if you can't handle a 'dirty' scene at a show, maybe try moving somewhere else? i'm a fan of this band but i don't think i'm dirty, so please stop generalizing on the basis of a few people getting out of hand. and nitty gritty, if you don't like songs about caterpillars or butterflies, you better not listen to the beatles....they sing about a whole bunch of crazy stuff!!

anyway i would love to make this but i'll prolly be too spent with DEMF the week before and waka the week after. it would be really tight to see how many people come out for this because this recent tour has been pretty hot... if they were playing 2 or 3 shows i might be convinced but that's a long trip from chicago for one night of music.

good for the disco biscuits, peace and love to all!

They should stop singing its so bad. I just chugged my beer when they sang to distract myself.

How can you defend these guys singing... its almost a joke. How can you defend there scene... its pretty fucking sketchy. Either way they put on a great show, and have their moments. But everyone is right when they say they are just plain silly and have a good number of function drug addicts at their concerts. Have you seen some of the people that follow this band around? I can overlook spunions but it is pretty ridiculous with the K and the Molly and the L and the xanax and painkillers... It just seems like you have a lot more people their worried about scoring more molly or l than actually paying attention to whats going on on the stage. Again i enjoy the shows but you cant deny what is obviously true.

Gee Nick, you've just described elements that follow every band. Therefore, you can't deny what is obviously true. Bagging on the Biscuits scene is as lame and cliché as it ever was.

"If you cant say any thing nice, then dont say any thing at all "

That being said the Bisco is tearing it up right now. They are on top of their game ,and loving it. Get over your past experiences with this band and do youself a favor and check em out. You will be suprised at what you are hearing.

Jambase disabled comments on the new tour dates list. Really weak. Just because the DBs always ignite dumb comments doesn't make this necessary. They're fun to read and if you don't like it, don't read it. Sorry guys but I'm against any form of censorship.

there was nothing said on this board that would warrant censorship. fucking jambase.

the bottom line is that talk like this is deterring people from finding out for themselves what this band is all about, people need to get over the prejudice and really just focus on the music, which i assure you is stellar

I just can't help but jump in here...TDB (& STS9 for that matter) have the ability to put on an incredible show. They also occasionally play some boring fucking music because they know their fan base will applaud and keep coming back. If you enjoying seeing them live and maybe OCCASIONALLY listen to show where they were ON, that's fine but if either band is your favorite band in the world, I feel sorry for you.
