Officers arrested 14 individuals throughout the weekend of Disco
Biscuit shows in Northampton. Five nitrous oxide tanks were confiscated
as well as a myriad of drugs. Fans were escorted out of the venue to
the hospital as well for overdosing according to the Massachusetts
local news. Balloons filled with nitrous oxide were being sold for five
dollars while other drugs were being sold on the streets as well.
Officers tracked down tanks by following fans to the location of the
sale as well as showing up to reported disturbance complaints. The
Massachusetts Local News reports that all arrested individuals are from
outside the Northampton area.
Creating electronic music in a party atmosphere, jamming out and even
playing songs backwards is just part of what the Disco Biscuits are
about. The Disco Biscuits are one of the remaining jam bands left in
the game that still has a rabid following. Fans gather from all over to
search this band out and dance to the heavy electronic grooves. Since
the music creates such a rave/party atmosphere, the scene that appears
at concerts always has a strong interest in drugs and expanding on
their good times.
Our Take: The Disco Biscuits are without a doubt one of the
bigger party bands out there. Fans eat up their electronic tunes while
munching out on all sorts of drugs. I’ve seen people removed from Bisco
shows myself due to drug overdoses. The band seems to provide an
environment that compliments drug use.
