Disco Biscuits: Aucoin Out for NYE; Altman & Rabb to Fill In

ALLEN AUCOIN STILL OUT OF ACTION, WILL NOT PERFORM ON NYE RUN;
SAM ALTMAN AND JOHNNY RABB WILL FILL DRUM SLOT

The Disco Biscuits
The Disco Biscuits have announced that drummer Allen Aucoin has not been cleared by doctors to travel or perform and will miss their scheduled NYE run at The Tower Theater in Philadelphia. Founding Biscuits drummer Sam Altman and Johnny Rabb of BioDiesel will fill in for Aucoin on both shows. The complete message is below.

"We want to first thank everyone for their over the top support this week during a difficult time for the band. The first two nights at Terminal 5 have been so much fun musically, and none of it would have been possible without our fans' unwavering support. Special thanks to Greenie, Deitch, and Darren for kicking major ass behind the kit these first two nights.

We are sad and sorry to report that Allen will not be able to perform with the band on December 30th and 31st at the Tower in Philly. When we first made the announcement earlier in the week, Allen's prognosis was for a quick recovery and for him to be released from the hospital yesterday. As of this morning, Allen's doctors have not cleared him to travel or perform. Please send your best wishes, as he is currently in the ICU. Allen's health is of paramount importance, and we cannot do anything that would jeopardize his full recovery.

In his place, we will be bringing two amazing drummers with us to the Tower. The first is the doctor himself, Sam Altman. Sammy graciously changed his own New Year's plans to fill the void. The second is Johnny Rabb, our friend and drummer from BioDiesel. Allen is beyond disappointed that he will not be able to play on two of the most important shows of the year, but was instrumental in helping connect us with Johnny Rabb.

We are going the extra mile to make sure that we are ready musically to deliver 3 more kick ass shows and ring in 2011 on a high note. See you tonight!
