Ring in 2008 with the Disco Biscuits, Keller Williams, & More
Step right up as The Disco Biscuits catapult themselves into 2008 with CIRCO BISCO - an unprecedented New Year's Eve spectacular of SIGHT, SOUND and PERFORMANCE at the Tweeter Center.
The DISCO BISCUITS come back to the Tweeter Center for the second year in a row after 2006's "Progressions in Quadraphonic Sound" celebration. This year, they will ring in the New Year with CIRCO BISCO to help commemorate the band's second decade together. Over the years, The Disco Biscuits have left a cultural footprint with their free-form improvisation, relentless on-stage energy and trance-fusion sound. Their music has not only made them one of the most popular jam bands playing today, but they have also grown to be one of the most successful Philadelphia rock bands of all time.
Adding to the festivities is one-man wonder KELLER WILLIAMS. The restless troubadour returns for another Bisco New Year's celebration to delight the audience with fan favorites and debut cuts. Keller is currently celebrating the release of his twelfth album. Aptly titled 12, the release looks back at a ground-breaking and already remarkable career. The album features one standout song from each of his previous eleven releases and added to the mix is one new, previously un-recorded song. While the Keller Williams adventure has only just begun, 12 is a fantastic celebration of a musical milestone. Look for 12 in stores on December 18, 2007 on SCI Fidelity Records.
Aptly named from the Spanish word for "bulletproof," ANTIBALAS' arsenal of free jazz, organic funk, electronica, hip-hop and Afrobeat rhythms are poised to set Circo Bisco on fire. Modeled after classic Afrobeat bands like Fela Kuti's Africa 70 and Eddie Palmieri's Harlem River Drive Orchestra, Brooklyn's Antibalas makes intensely rhythmic music for a booty-shaking, party-friendly sound.
Keeping the party ragin' til dawn, BASSNECTAR brings the "largest cult following of any DJ ... " (SF Weekly) with him to the Tweeter Center for a special, late-night throw-down. Serving up an eclectic blend of massive basslines, thick mob-scene beats and fearless genre-mashing capability (complete with mind-altering visual effects and a pulsating laser light show), Bassnectar's late-night performance is not to be missed!
And after last year's success, fans can once again party in THE BLACK BOX - this time featuring LIVE performance art by PEX and the psyched-out ambient sounds of Philly's own GRIMACE FEDERATION throwing down for a special New Year's spectacle of sight, sound and performance in the Box all night long.
