The Disco Biscuits Debut More New Songs In McKees Rocks


The Disco Biscuits wrapped up their two-night tour kickoff at the Roxian Theatre in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania on Friday night. As they had done the night before, guitarist Jon Gutwillig, bassist Marc Brownstein, keyboardist Aron Magner and drummer Allen Aucoin unveiled some new songs.

The Biscuits got things going with an oldie, “Morph Dusseldorf,” which saw Magner — who seemed to be feeling it all night — dishing out some crunchy clav and Gutwillig wielding his hollow body Gibson. “King Of The World” got dark and industrial as it transitioned into “We Like To Party” before heading back to “KOTW” ahead of the first debut of the night “Frebis Slinky.” The first frame came to a close with a standalone “Above The Waves.”

The second set got underway with another debut, “Electric Slinky” that seemed to establish a “Slinky” suite. “42” then segued into an inverted “The Great Abyss.” On the way back to “42” the band flirted with Todd Terje’s “Strandbar.” The Biscuits then unveiled their last debut of the evening, a song called “Station,” before closing the second set down with the classic “House Dog Party Favor.”

The Disco Biscuits retook the stage for a fairly short “Portal To An Empty Head” at about seven minutes. Check out pro-shot of the entire show below:
