"The cool thing about the Biscuits is that we typically try to find ways to include the fans in the outcome of the sets from time to time, in many different ways," bassist Marc Brownstein tells Spinner. Drawing on this approach, Brownstein has invited fans to post their "fantasy setlist" on his Facebook page. And there's a prize involved: the setlist that gets the most "likes" will likely be performed -- at least in part -- by the Disco Biscuits next weekend.
This "fantasy set" will be one of seven sets total that the Disco Biscuits perform at Camp Bisco, their annual three-day festival held on a property just outside of Albany, N.Y. It's safe to assume that some of the other crowdsourced setlists may influence the other sets at the festival as well.
Brownstein says that feedback from fans has always been important to the band and they've always paid attention to what their fans want. "It may just be the energy of the crowd on a given night, or we may take setlists on Facebook and consider those," he says. "Either way, it is great for both the fans and the band to have this mutual connection."
Other artists appearing at Camp Bisco include LCD Soundsystem, Ween, Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar and Rusko. As for the Disco Biscuits' fantasy set, our call is for a presentation that double downs both their 'Hot Air Balloon' and 'Chemical Warfare Brigade' rock operas into one unified whole. Hey, that's why they call it "fantasy."
