Last night marked the end of City Bisco, a three night run that took The Disco Biscuits throughout the New York metropolitan area with two nights at the intimate Irving Plaza, and a third and final night at the newly built Coney Island Amphitheatre, bringing fans to Brooklyn, NY for a beautiful change in scenery.Full Video: The Disco Biscuits Debut New Song In Raging NYC ShowThe band entered last night’s stage with the Hungry March Band for a “Spectacle” opener, after the young band members had kept the amphitheater entertained long before the Disco Biscuits hit the stage. Once acquainted, the band dug right into a lengthy first set, with “Tempest” and an inverted “Digital Buddha” sandwiched between “The Very Moon”.After a break, the band returned to the stage for a cover of the Beastie Boys‘ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”, a natural fit for the three-night occasion, before dialing into their raging second set, with Pink Floyd’s “Run Like Hell”, “Cyclone” and inverted versions of “Crickets” and “Aquatic Ape” to keep the crowd moving. The night closed on a “Highwire” dance party, as the three-night run came to its close. Watch last night’s Disco Biscuits show below.With a few days off, the band will return to the stage in Hampton, GA for the Imagine Festival next week, and then two nights of The Great North in Maine in September, before heading over to the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas for their three-night Halloween run.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits At Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk, Brooklyn, NY – 8/20/16I: Spectacle (with Hungry March Band)-> ¿Donde?, The Very Moon-> Tempest-> Digital Buddha (inverted)->The Very Moon-> And the Ladies Were the Rest of the Night (ending)II: No Sleep Til Brooklyn (Beastie Boys)-> Run Like Hell-> Cyclone-> Crickets (inverted)-> Aquatic Ape (inverted)-> Bernstein & Chasnoff (ending)E: HighwirePhotos via T-Rex Photo; see the full gallery below.

By evening, the storm took a turn outward to sea and was located 205 kilometers from Cozumel when passing Quintana Roo.During the early evening hours, Governor Carlos Joaquín reported “The tropical storm this afternoon was located about 200 kilometers southeast of Cozumel, however, between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. there will be winds between 60 and 70 kilometers per hour.”While there was no direct hit, the region did, however, experience sporadic rain downpours and heavy wind gusts that left some large billboards flattened in Cancun and maritime ports closing in Playa del Carmen.The cargo crossing at Punta Venado (Calica) to Cozumel suspended their services Sunday due to adverse weather conditions, while ferry company Ultramar continued with crossings as usual until 8:00 p.m. when they ended services for the day early due to the storm.Authorities from Civil Protection were out manning local beach areas due to the threat of high waves that were expected to arrive with tropical storm Michael. After passing Quintana Roo and the Yucatan, Michael continued to gain strength and as of 11:00 a.m. Monday, became a hurricane.Currently, a hurricane warning is in effect for portions of western Cuba.According to NOAA, Tropical Storm Michael is headed northward over the Western Caribbean and is expected to make landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast between Alabama and the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, most likely as a major hurricane with wind speeds greater than 110 mph.
