If LCD, Ween, etc. were just gonna collect a big payday there I couldn't blame them. But do they understand that now they are going to have Disco Biscuit kids coming to all their shows? With their flatbrim hats, penchant for drug-taking one-ups-manship, crackheaded kindergarten mentality and all?

"Disco Biscuit kids coming to all their shows? With their flatbrim hats, penchant for drug-taking one-ups-manship, crackheaded kindergarten mentality and all?"

A) Ween is no stranger to drugs. B) Why the fuck wouldn't Ween want more fans?

You've got some seriously irrational pussy assed hangups yo

I hope Ween close with a 20 minute version of Mushroom Festival in Hell and freak out the wooks.

But seriously, Disco Buiscuits are the worst thing ever... after Dave Matthews Band

kids on drugs

This is like the Gathering of the Juggalos with the same ratio of good to bad bands.

Audience is different but equally not anyone I would want to be around. The drugs are different but equally not anything I would want to take.

At least the Juggalos booked Gwar.....

why is Camp Bisco getting coverage but BV is ignoring Mountain Jam???????

BISCO is one of the shittiest bands on the planet. also have an AWFUL fanbase.

I am NOT a Disco Biscuits fan at all, but i think they deserve props for putting on a very cool festival, you people have to chill with the snobbery, the last few years they have had a LOT of good bands, kudos to them to exposing their fans to a broader range of music than just Deadhead-lite jam band fare.

Posted by brian roach | March 4, 2010 12:47 PM

people on here are so dramatic! "worst thing ever"?? "shittiest bands"?? I think not!

If you don't like them, don't go, but people seeing them for the first time will most likely be pleasantly surprised

actually there are more people of color at this festival than any jam oriented music festival I have seen. well they could have mostly been part of Nas's entourage.

BOOGNISH is rising and all you pussy can suck their dicks. They are going to get BROWN all over this shitty electronic festival and I hope they play hippie smell and zoloft and then Fat lenny, NAN, and anything else that will piss the wookies off. Ohhh and Disco Biscuits are better than anything any of you haters have ever done with music, so shut the fuck up and suck your tiny dick you pussy ass kids. You are not cool and your dick smells like bigfoot's feet. Go take a shower and kiss BOOGNISH's ass posers. You all suck and have ruined the scene, there was a time believe it or not that festivals like Bonnaroo were cool. But, then faggots like you got word of them and ruined it for everyone. BOOGNISH one more time :P

man camps going downhill... dont get me wrong bisco, ween, telepath, new deal, future rock, and thievery are good but thats about it with a few good reggae acts and small bands scattered in there. the rest is instrumental-less. last i heard the biscuits were a BAND so why more djs than bands at their fest?? well im still going but this might be my last year... oh where oh where has the bisco ive known and loved gone? this scenes going down quick. well back to the old reliables like cheese, phish, and tea leaf

Why's Everyone Hatin?

Anyone Whos Ever Heard "Home Again" Knows That Bisco's Not The Worst Band Ever. There Downfall, Is Simply That They Play To Long. Foriegn Artists Will Come Play A Festival in The United States. Travel All That Way For An Hour Set, While The Biscuits Are Playing 5. Any band Becomes Relentless after 5 hours. Honestly I Feel Like The Reason Thiers More DJs Is Because Electronic Music Is Widening It's Stride By Far. Jam Bands Have Been Done And People Are Prepared To Progress. Me, I'm Just Big On The Fest. ESKMO, The Album Leaf, Dieselboy, and LCD All Together. It's Just Gonna Nasty...

P.S. On The Real Though, How Do People Find Forums Like This To Just Say... Kids On Drugs? I Mean. It's Pretty Evident Thiers Gonna Be Hippies and Kids On Drugs. Oh, And That Juggalo Comment Was Just Plain Fucking Absurd. Get The Hell Outta Here Man. Hahaha

my first bisco, fest, camping experience, and biscuits show. my opinion: this event was a fantastic, terrible, amazing, mind boggling, fucking disgusting, beautiful, and bonkers place to be in. everyone seemed to be tripping balls and looking for drugs non-stop. its like you think you could actually LIVE in that environment while your having a blast melting your face, and everyone around you at the time completely understands where your coming from ya know? but after a minute your like wow, get me the fuck home- i need a shower and i have to go tell my mom i love her. quick. ayyyy louuuuvv youuu bissquoooooo !!
