While plenty of people were bummed that the Disco Biscuits decided not to host their annual Bisco Inferno at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this past summer, those folks most beside themselves with glee right now at news that the act has combined Bisco Inferno with their traditional January show for an epic three-night run in Denver, Boulder and Broomfield. Keep on reading for more details on the show and where to get tickets.

From their first performance at a Chinese restaurant years ago, the Disco Biscuits have of course been a Colorado favorite for years. So opting not to host its annual fiesta this year couldn't have been an easy one, as the outfit has raged under the Bisco Inferno banner for the previous three years. Any misgivings have now been dashed with word that the outfit is combining the usual January appearance with Bisco. From the sounds of it, the wait will undoubtedly be worth it.
Starting things off at the Boulder Theater (only those who purchase three-night passes will be able to attend this show) on Tuesday, January 24, the group will then perform at the Ogden Theater the following night, and then close-out the run at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield on Thursday, January 26. Although the full line-ups have not been revealed yet (past Bisco Infernos have seen acts like Big Boi, Booka Shade, Boombox, Lotus, and the Glitch Mob), GRiZ and Michal Menert are both slated to round out the bill on the final night.
Three-night passes are slated to go sale this Thursday, November 8 at noon for $100, and as mentioned, this is the only way you will be able to attend the show at the Boulder Theater. Two-day passes are available for $66.50 and will also be available for purchase on November 8. Single day tickets for the 1STBank Center show start at $33.50 ($35 day of show) and will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, November 10 at 10 a.m.
