Big Gigantic+the Disco Biscuits
Playing concurrently with the yearly post-Xmas sales rush, this jam band, alongside headliners Disco Biscuits, is banking on their fan base peeling themselves away from holiday get-togethers and the stores (as those probably won't tempt them much). As with the guys at the top of the bill, BG favors electronicathough when you listen to them closely, strains of smooth jazz and progressive rock appear, too. It's not that strange when you consider that genre godheads the Allman Bros and the Dead had roots in extended solos and lengthy songs, too, though BG doesn't have players to match Jerry, Duane, or Warren Haynes.
