The Disco Biscuits continued their hometown run at The Fillmore in Philadelphia last night, playing the second of three nights and welcoming the horn section from fellow Philly outfit Swift Technique for a few tunes, including the band’s debut of a David Bowie classic.
The ST horns first came out during the opening set, lending a punch to “Give it to Me.” The section would reappear as the band returned to the stage after the set break, and the collective dove into “King of the World” that led into Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” with lead vocals from guitarist Jon “the Barber” Gutwillig.
