The city so nice, we came to play it twice,” bassist Marc Brownstein declared right after The Disco Biscuits took the stage at the State Theatre on Friday evening.Indeed, yesterday’s show marked the first performance of a two-night stand in Portland, in addition to being the second show of a three-night run that kicked off the previous night in Providence, RI. Friday night’s first set was particularly focused on The Disco Biscuits early catalog, as each of the five songs played—”M.E.M.P.H.I.S.”, “Voices Insane”, “Spaga”, a cover of Frank Zappa’s Roxy & Elsewhere favorite “Pygmy Twylyte”, and “Wet”—were tunes that first entered the band’s repertoire back in the 1990s. The Zappa cover’s appearance was an interesting one, seeing as it appeared in the middle of a “Spaga”The Disco Biscuits kept things interesting during the second set as well by delivering what amounted to a 90-minute “Story of the World” sandwich. The first portion of that Biscuits classic eventually melted into an inverted rendition of “42” before segueing into “Lunar Pursuit”. Next up was the second-ever inverted rendition of “Naeba”, a rarity that debuted in 2009 and has only appeared twice since 2011. The inverted tune went into strange territory and touched on a “Billy Jean” tease on its way to “Tricycle”, which eventually gave way to the second half of “Story of the World”. Finally, the band re-emerged after the encore break for a brief (by Disco Biscuits standards) “Times Up” to close out the show.The Disco Biscuits will return to the State Theatre tonight for the final show of their three-night New England run.
