The Disco Biscuits returned to their hometown for a three-night run at The Fillmore in Philadelphia to close out last week, and on Friday night, the band busted out a couple of tunes for the first time in eight years.
First up was “Commercial Amen,” a song that began in the repertoire of Conspirator, the Biscuits side-project featuring Marc Brownstein and Aaron Magner. Coming in the middle of the first set, it was the first appearance of the tune in a Biscuits’ setlist since March 2010.
Following up that bustout in the second was another Conspirator cut, “Boom Shaker,” which was dusted off by the Biscuits for the first time since May 2010. Friday’s show would also end with an encore featuring a cover of JJ Cale’s “After Midnight,” which the Biscuits had only played once before in 2015.
See full video of Friday’s show above, along with full video of the previous and following shows below, all via The Disco Biscuits’ free live stream of their hometown run, which brought them to nine total shows at The Fillmore, for which the venue hoisted a banner into the rafters (see below).
