The Disco Biscuits stopped by the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, Virginia on Sunday. The jamtronica quartet delivered a 24-minute debut of their new original “Why We Dance.”

Biscuits guitarist Jon Gutwillig led tDB through the lyrical portion of “Why We Dance” to kick off the Charlottesville concert before the band — Gutwillig, bassist Marc Brownstein, keyboardist Aron Magner and drummer Allen Aucoin — embarked on a +-20-minute jam excursion on the tune. While the song is unreleased, Bisco is in the midst of an extensive album rollout, putting out a series of singles culminating in the release of their first studio LP in more than 10 years.

Next, “Why We Dance” bled into another new unreleased song, “Shocked,” which stretched to 14 minutes. The set continued with an inverted version of the classic “And The Ladies Were The Rest Of The Night.” A song originating from the Electron catalog, “Miracles,” then encompassed “Tricycle” to cap off the seamless set.

An 18-minute “Triumph,” launched another continuous frame. The quartet would cycle through +20-minute renditions of “Pimp Blue Rikkis” and “Anthem” before returning to “Triumph.” Bisco then plotted “Another Plan Of Attack” ahead of a substantial “Mr. Don” to cap off the second set with two 16-minute explorations. The Disco Biscuits returned to encore with the vintage “Frog Legs” to bring the evening to a close.
