if your idea of fun is listening to a bunch of garbage ass music by total loser kids....
or if your idea of fun is raving with kids in slanted baseball hats and baggy ankle length shorts and bubble vests
they both suck
I saw Umphrey's open for PNF at the mardi gras show in 2005 and they blew me away...confusions_prince wrote:I'm going to see Bisco & Umphrey's a week from tomorrow. I don't really like the Bisco show I downloaded... Will it at least be fun?

With that said I hate the Bisco scene. Most of the kids that go to their shows are assholes. BUT if you can ignore all that then its a good show.
That's about as accurate an observation as you're gonna get right there.jahozer wrote:Both bands have very solid musicians. Umphreys are very technically proficient.
Bisco goes for the esoteric peaks found in electronic music.
I have seen them sometimes and have been very impressed, but at other times just not into it at all. Thats true with most jam bands, but with bisco it seems its one extreme or the other.
The fun part for me seeing them is how into it their fans are. Those kids LUUUUUUV their Bisco.
A friend of mine is actually good friends with the band so we usually get all access type stuff and he goes out and gives extras away. It blows these kids minds when my friend comes out with a laminate and hands a bisco kid a ticket telling him "Brownie wants him to have it"
They are some sketchy mother fuckers, though. Tree Thuggers. High as a kite on Molly. You can have fun going around putting curves in their hats...
Now Umphreys is a bit different. They are really phenomenal musicians. Been very impressed with them, but most times, just cant get into it. Its a bit too prog and metal for me. Its almost like they want to show how many different styles they can cram into a song. Their fans love em too. Their fans are young and a bit fratty, and the bisco kids make them look kike freakin choir boys.
But then again I am a bit of a moe,ron
