The Disco Biscuits
The core doesn't get much harder than when this veteran Philadelphia improv-rock quartet hits town for a multi-night run. (This one ends Sunday.) Whether drawn from one of their two rock operas or pastiched from dub, hip-hop, prog, or even vaguely Hawaiian sources, the Biscuits' tunes are secondary to extended trance-rock jams that bubble and slice and regularly hit ecstatic peaks of white-hot, crowd-thrilling intensity amid an epileptic fit of strobing, lasering lights.
