The Disco Biscuits have announced a five-night, late October run of shows leading into a Halloween night performance in Charlottesville, VA – marking the ten-year anniversary of the band’s first Charlottesville Halloween in 2000.
Presale for these shows has begun at BiscoTix and general onsales will begin next month.
Those lucky enough to follow the band for the entirety of the five-night run will be there for a monumental week in band history, as the Halloween run takes the Biscuits on a whirlwind tour through the best venues the South has to offer.
The Disco Biscuits will kick things off just a short drive from their Philly homebase at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! on Wednesday, October 27 before heading south to Norfolk, VA’s NorVa on October 28. There the band will perform the pre-party of the decade one night before joining friends The String Cheese Incident at the Hampton Coliseum for a Friday night throwdown to open their Hulaween festivities.
October 30 sees the Biscuits return to Asheville, NC’s Thomas Wolfe Auditorium for their slot at MoogFest 2010. The festival’s stacked lineup is a sight to be seen, and the Biscuits’ performance there will mark the band’s return to one of the most gorgeous rooms in town.
The run culminates at the Charlottesville Pavilion on Halloween night, where the Biscuits will mark the 10th anniversary of their Halloween 2000 performance. Ten years ago, the band performed at the now-defunct Trax, smashing pumpkins on stage for a spectacle that fans have talked about since. Times have changed and venues have grown for the Biscuits, but the band will set out to deliver a night to remember for another ten years.
