Disco Biscuits kicking off New Year’s Run despite hospitalization of their drummer & lots of snow
A MESSAGE FROM JAM BAND THE DISCO BISCUITS:
Happy Holidays –
2010 has been a great year, but it has not been without its challenges. And no matter what gets dealt to us at this point, we know that we are going to get through it, in no small part due to the support our fans have shown us. Throughout the year, we have been forced to respond to adversity with calm and strength. We always try to take lemons and make lemonade. In the process, we have made new friends, and found out how much we are capable of during times of duress.
Well if we hadn’t been through enough, last night we received a call from Allen’s father. Yesterday, Allen suffered a serious asthma attack and was hospitalized. He will be fine, but unfortunately will not be released from the hospital until Tuesday. Fortunately, his doctors have cleared him to play [Philly] on December 30 and 31. Our thoughts are with Allen and his family.
For [the NYC shows at Terminal 5 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday], we are putting together an amazing line-up with drummers that we have played with in other projects throughout the years. We are blessed to have such a strong network of amazing drummers to call on. Check it out:
[Monday], we are honored to welcome Mike Greenfield from Lotus. This will be the fourth time Mike plays a show with us, and they are always classic sets.
On Tuesday, we’ll be joined by two of the hottest drummers in North America. We are proud to welcome Adam Deitch from Break Science and Pretty Lights. As well we are excited to be joined by Darren Shearer from the New Deal. On Wednesday we are being joined by our old friend, Dr. Sam Altman.
We’re not sure what else to really say, other than to keep Allen in your thoughts and prayers and we promise to deliver you wonderful, well thought-out shows while we are waiting for our brother to get back up here and join us for the new year.
That makes special drummers and special openers at each of the Terminal 5 shows this week. As previosuly mentioned, Raekwon is opening up the 12/27 show. DFA artist Holy Ghost! is opening on 12/28 and Crystal Method opens on 12/29. Tickets are still on sale for all shows. Get well soon Allen.
