Electronic pioneers The Disco Biscuits have just announced their "Act 1 2020 Tour". Tickets go on sale Friday at 10AM local time. In the meantime, fans can enter the "fanclub presale lottery", which runs from now-Wednesday until 5PM ET. Visit the band's website for more details on upcoming shows and to purchase tickets, HERE.
All four band members: Marc Brownstein & Aron Magner (Disco Biscuits), Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo's Almost Dead), and Mike Greenfield (Lotus), all have busy schedules, but when they come together as one force, “Electron”, they are on point. With many years under their belt in the “jam world”, they feed off of their energy and their little non-verbal to create a sound of their own. Whether it be Magner tickling the ivories, or Hamilton shredding it on guitar, the foursome is always firing on all cylinders.

The party is from 12:30 – 7:00 pm, rain or shine with tickets going on sale Tuesday, August 27th at 10:00 am MT.
The Disco Biscuits' Aron Magner unplugs his formidable stack of keyboard gadgetry to introduce his new band SPAGA, and in doing so, takes his 20-plus year musical journey back to where it all began—the piano. The keyboardist, who is best known for trailblazing a fusion of jam-rock and electronica with his Disco Biscuits' bandmates, has come full circle by returning to his jazz upbringing.
Disco Biscuit bassist, activist, and Philadelphia resident Marc Brownstein brought his new supergroup Star Kitchen to Ardmore Music Hall for the second time last night and did not disappoint. The Star Kitchen lineup includes guitarist Danny Mayer (Eric Krasno Band), keyboardist Rob Marsher (Addison Groove Project, Matisyahu) and drummer Marlon Lewis (Lauryn Hill, John Legend), along with different guests at every show. Brownstein noted that all members of the current lineup live in Philadelphia.
Last Friday night, Matt Butler brought his Everyone Orchestra to Terrapin Crossroads. The band, whose exact makeup typically changes (with the exception of Butler) from location to location, consisted of Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident), Aron Magner (The Disco Biscuits), Ross James (Terrapin Family Band), Robin Sylvester (RatDog), Sunshine Garcia Becker (Furthur), Zach Nugent (Melvin Seals & JGB), and Andrea Whitt (Zucchero Fornaciari). They also had played the night before with Dan Lebowitz (ALO) in Ross James’ spot. Most of the members had played in Everyone Orchestra at some point before, the exceptions being Nugent and Whitt.
