The Disco Biscuits at the 2008 Jammys
The Disco Biscuits paid tribute to the Smashing Pumpkins during its Halloween performance at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre. At the end of the band’s second set the group debuted a version of the alt-rockers first single, “I Am One.” The song also appears on the Pumpkins debut album Gish.
Nearly a decade ago, the Disco Biscuits also covered the Smashing Pumpkins during a Halloween performance Charlottesville, VA’s Trax on October 31, 2000. That show culminated with the band literally smashing pumpkins onstage during a set-closing version of the Smashing Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock. The rest of Saturday’s performance mixed older material including the “Stone” and “The Devil’s Waltz” with newer tracks like “On Time.” The Glitch Mob, Holy Fuck and Orchard Lounge opened the night.
