Jamtronica pioneers The Disco Biscuits commenced a hometown run at The Fillmore in Philadelphia on Friday night. The band had plenty of hijinks in store including the return of anthem about the Disco Biscuits and the City of Brotherly Love.
The quartet opened with “Coming Home,” a song with lyrics proclaiming “Philly it’s always been home with a Happy New Year Biscuits coming home” that they first played at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory on December 31, 2002. “Coming Home” had only been sung by the band one other time on New Year’s Eve 2010-2011. The Biscuits both kicked off and concluded the opening set with “Coming Home.” The beginning wound its way into a lengthy jam ahead of extended runs on “I-Man,” “Vassillios” and “Abraxas.” A cover of Pink Floyd’s “Run Like Hell” then was jammed into the reprise of “Coming Home” to close the first set.
Last night’s wild second set began with a 30 minute “Overture” > “Portal To An Empty Head” > “Overture” sequence. The Biscuits then jammed “Highwire” into “I Remember When” before embarking on a set-closing “Magellan” > “I-Man” pairing. For the encore, tDB began with “Wet” and then treated fans to the end of “Run Like Hell.” The Disco Biscuits’ run at The Fillmore Philadelphia continues on Friday night. A free webcast is available via the band’s YouTube channel.
