Time is running out! Christmas is upon us and within a week you will have to decide where to spend your New Years Eve 2001! For the first time in countless years, neither the pioneering Grateful Dead nor the currently “retired” psychedelic juggernauts of Phish will be ringing in the new year. In this climactic season of millenial progression, this symbolic passing of the guard to the next generation of improvisational bands, likens itself to the first time June rolled around without Michael Jordan running shop. The question of where to escape to for a New Year’s Eve party lingers in the minds of heads nationwide. Who will provide your soundtrack for entrance into the next millenium?

Philadelphia’s genre-defying musical acrobats, The Disco Biscuits are heavy favorites to vacuum up many warriors questing for spiritual adventure this season. Instead of playing a show or two like most bands around the nation, the Biscuits cordially invite you, and all of your friends, on a five-day journey counting down the moments until 2001, the beginning of the 21st century! Buck Rodgers take cover! Following a white hot fall tour across America, drawing crowds of 500 to 1200, the Biscuits are salivating to wrap up their high-paced year of music and emotions in style. Take firm footing and beware as they wind their unique blend of trance, jungle, trip-hop and rock into a millennial snowball of psychedelic madness and aim square for the middle of your forehead!

Following two shows at a fabulous 1200 person GA room, The Silo, in Reading, PA on December 27th and 28th, the week of divinely-inspired improvisational bliss will continue into the New York area for another two-night stand. The Vanderbilt, a 1200 person dance club in Plainview, NY, will host the final two Biscuit experiences of this century before the band bushwhacks through the urban jungle up to The Palladium in Worcester, MA. This beautiful theatre will be the site of a three-set blowout party for New Years Eve 2001! The past two new year’s shows have seen the Biscuits unveil their Hot Air Balloon rock opera on 12/31/98, and a four-set marathon on 12/31/99 featuring a third set of pure improvisation to the Japanese apocalyptic animated feature Akira. What is in store for this year? Rumors abound of a new rock opera, an alien invasion, sacrificial offerings, and even the surfacing of the now-elusive former scene guru Rick Rood. As if these weren’t reason’s enough for you to get on the Bisco bus, you can rest assured that nowhere in America will a more full-throttled, intense, and abandonless musical celebration be occuring on that evening. So clear your schedules and launch pads, as the past is history and the future is now! Planet Bisco is the groundbreaking place to be this millennium; you can either come along or spend the night wondering what could have been...
