Watch Full Set Video From The Disco Biscuits’ Guest-Filled AURA Throwdown
The Disco Biscuits closed out the 7th AURA Music Festival last Saturday with a raging two and a half hours of originals, covers, and extended jams. The band played two sets, holding nothing back in the beloved Spirit of the Suwannee, a place they can pretty much call “Home Again” around this time of year. The first set opened with a nearly thirty-minute double nod to the Grateful Dead, welcoming Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo’s Almot Dead) on guitar for both “Scarlet Begonias” and “I Know You Rider.” The jams ensued with a “Spacebird” > “Pimp Blue Rikkits” > “Morph” jam, until Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band) joined the party for a “Funky Town” dance extravaganza, then closing with a “Spacebird” reprise.The second set kept the energy high, naturally so, with a “Caterpillar” > “Fifth of Beethoven” jam, ultimately bringing it all together with a “Home Again” > “Caterpillar” closer. Thanks to our friends at CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS, we’re able to share some HD video footage of the band’s full set at AURA.
