What to Do Tonight: Disco Biscuits



Get em while theyre hot!
  • Get 'em while they're hot!

Since forming at the University of Pennsylvania in 1995, the Disco Biscuits have become the kings of trance fusion. But it seems a little trite to stuff them into just this one category. In a way, the Disco Biscuits’ music has no boundaries. Over the past 15 years, they’ve injected their music with elements of electronica, jazz, hip-hop, pop, rock, and pretty much anything else that’s passed their ears. On its latest album, Planet Anthem, the group branches out even further, collaborating with producers who’ve helped shape recent records by Ludacris, Chris Brown, and the Black Keys. But the Disco Biscuits’ live show is where they really come alive. For all of the music tags thrown at the group, the Biscuits are primarily a jam band — one that stretches its otherwise concise songs to ten-plus minutes onstage. So get ready to zone out and lose yourself in sounds when the band comes to town this week. Disco Biscuits, with Papadosio, play House of Blues at 8 p.m. Tickets: $23, $20 in advance. —Jordan Zirm
