The Disco Biscuits Debut ‘Dancing In The Street’ Cover & Bust Out ‘M80’ At Red Rocks
The Disco Biscuits delivered the first two of three “Bisco Inferno” concerts at Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado on Friday and Saturday. Friday saw the band debuting a cover of the Marvin Gaye-co-written, Martha and the Vandellas popularized “Dancing In The Street” to kick off the second set while Saturday featured a bust out of “M80″ in the first frame.
Friday got underway with a stand-alone “Koncrete” before a bust out of “Crystal Ball.” The quartet last played the song on December 28, 2018 for a gap of 66 shows, as per Phantasy Tour. The band then headed into the vintage tDB tune “Nughuffer” before returning to “Crystal Ball.” “M.E.M.P.H.I.S.” then commenced a set-closing section that led into just the ending of “Svenghali.” The band came back out for the fully segued second set with the aforementioned “Dancing In The Street” which led into “The Very Moon.” “Running Into The Night” and “Tempest” came next ahead of a The Magician “Tractorbeam Jam.” “Shelby Rose” brought the second frame to a close. tDB would leave “Once The Fiddler Paid” unfinished to begin the encore before getting into “Clocks” to close out Friday evening.
Bisco kicked off Saturday off with “The Bridge” which led into “M80.” The Disco Biscuits played the song for the first time in more than 10 years, last time played on June 10, 2010 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. tDB returned to “The Bridge” to cap off the set opening section. A space-themed segment launched with “Astronaut” ahead of “Spacebirdmatingcall.” The “SITA” jam then led into “Gangster” ahead of an “Astronaut” call back to wrap up the first set. The Biscuits began the second set with a “We Like To Party” and “Rock Candy” pairing, the latter of which contained just the ending. Bisco then delivered a bust out of “Sound One,” last time played in February 2019 for a gap of 66 shows as per PT, before segueing into “Anthem.” The band then unveiled a new Fusion mix “Tractorbeam Jam” before returning to “Sound One,” which featured the full 2001-style ending for the first time in 20 years, according to PT. “Morph Dusseldorf” would then encompass an inverted “Abraxas” to conclude the set. “Crickets” would serve as the encore.
