The dance party that went down in what was essentially the cafeteria at the Hunter Mountain ski lodge was off the charts. Tom Hamilton and company came right out of the corner, gloves on and swinging with a nasty “One Rabbit Race,” and didn’t let up from there.[taped by Scott Schneider]CAMP BISCO VII: Indian Lookout Country Club – Mariaville, NYSnoop Dogg – The Disco Biscuits have always had a solid hip-hop act on the bill over the years, and Snoop Dogg brought his live band along for this, and it was solid from front to back. Snoop had been on tour with 311 the entire summer, and made a slip when he called the Biscuits “311”. We forgive him; he must have been puffing a little too much of the magic dragon.[courtesy of Jeremy Sewell]Younger Brother Live Band – Simon Posford and Benji Vaughan brought along Marc Brownstein, Tom Hamilton and Joe Russo out to England to record Last Days of Gravity, and the band played a great set at Camp that summer.[courtesy of Jeremy Sewell]CAMP BISCO VIII: Indian Lookout Country Club – Mariaville, NYThe rain didn’t stop anyone from enjoying a great set from Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.[courtesy of MyDailyThread]CAMP BISCO IX: Indian Lookout Country Club – Mariaville, NYThe lineup boasted sets from Ween, Pretty Lights, Thievery Corporation and LCD Soundsystem, before the final (at the time) MSG shows.

This years incantation will once again take place at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA from July 14th-16th, and you can get your tickets HERE!Camp Bisco wasn’t always the Northeast’s festival beast that it is now. Back in 1999, the Biscuits’ wanted to throw their own party with some of the jam and early livetronica scenes up and coming acts (a young Sector 9, Lake Trout, Project Logic, Deep Banana Blackout). They took a chance at Tune Town in Titusville, PA and brought out 800 attendees that first year. From that point on, Camp Bisco took on a life of its own, doubling in size year after year.Let’s take a look at some of the bands that played Camp Bisco over the years.CAMP BISCO I: Tune Town – Titusville, PASector 9 (to later become STS9) – You could hear early on that there was a lot of substance to this band, as they were clearly on the upward trajectory.last_img
