Electronic jam band stars play the first of three nights in Denver
If you are sensing a little more hippie in the air in Denver than normal, your senses are correct because it's a big weekend for jam band lovers as the Disco Biscuits play three nights in a row in the Mile High City. The culmination of the weekend's performances will be Bisco Inferno, the bands' yearly show at Red Rocks where they will play along with Big Boi and a slew of other acts on the big stage. The Biscuits have become a national sensation as they have forged the way for a new style of jam rock, infusing everything from hip hop, indie rock, and a good dose of electronic music into their style.
Folks from all across the country including New York, North Carolina, Chicago and Nebraska made the trip out to catch the raging dance party that the Biscuits would be hosting. The Ogden filled up Thursday night, but in true Disco Biscuits style it was after 10:15 p.m. when they took the stage as the lone act for the evening. It was all the crowd needed, though, as the band felt their way through an unbroken flow of songs, solos, and plenty of free-form jamming. The stage lights were fun, but most likely nothing compared to what will go down at Red Rocks on Saturday. If open-air dance parties late into the night is your thing, don't miss the big show on Saturday night at Red Rocks! — Josh Barrett, special to Metromix
