Last night at the Maine State Pier in Portland, ME, Sam Altman, the founding drummer of The Disco Biscuits returned to the stage with the group. Altman, who departed in 2005 to pursue a medical degree, has appeared with the group a few times over the intervening years, including gigs at the Electric Factory in 2007, Camp Bisco in 2009, Brooklyn Bowl in 2010 and again in 2010 when he filled in for an ailing Allen Aucoin at New York’s Terminal 5.
