The Disco Biscuits Wrap Run At Westville Music Bowl In New Haven

The Disco Biscuits played the second show of a two-night run at Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut on Saturday night. The band delivered a setlist featuring a few rarities, classics and newer tunes across the evening’s two sets.

Bisco got the party started with “7-11,” complete with keyboardist Aron Magner initiating a jam on Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me.” The opener went unfinished at the time as Magner, guitarist Jon Gutwillig, bassist Marc Brownstein, and drummer Allen Aucoin segued into “Pat And Dex,” a sparsely played song making just its fifth appearance in the past 20 years and first since 2018.

Next up was a cover of Frank Zappa’s “Pygmy Twylyte” that led into one of the more recent additions to the band’s setlists “4th Of July. “ The uninterrupted sequence continued, ending the set with the pairing of the staples “The Great Abyss” and “Story Of The World.”

Set two began with the quartet establishing an intense vibe via “Strobelights And Martinis,” which also went unfinished before transitioning into an inverted version of “Above The Waves.” The seamless set progressed with “Basis For A Day” leading into the night’s fusion-themed “Tractorbeam Jam,” and returns to complete “Strobelights And Martinis” and “Basis For A Day.”

The encore consisted of another newer Bisco tune, “Station,” and a circling back to where the concert began by concluding the show-opening “7-11.” Watch pro-shot video of the first two songs of each set from Saturday night below:
