DrFameus (Allen of the Disco Biscuits) joins electro-rock powerhouse, Tweed, at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center on Thurs, January 9, 2020. Adv tix $12.

DrFameus

An electronic music project created by the versatile drummer, Allen Aucoin. Allen explores many realms with DrFameus ranging from breakbeats to drum ‘n’ bass to dubstep to techno/house. It is his ability to survey the crowd and then improvise that has allowed Aucoin to play in such diverse projects over the years.

Allen began his musical career not onstage, but instead in education and composition. This included instructing and writing for award winning percussion ensembles and teaching drum lessons. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts Allen was given the nickname DrFameus and it has stuck ever since. Like so many of us, college was not exactly a punctual time for Allen. He became known as the guy that was famously late all the time; so much that a friend gave him the honorary doctorate, DrFameus.

After moving back to the southeast from Boston, Allen continued to work as a teacher and percussion instructor while touring with the band “Skydog Gyspy.” In 2005 Aucoin acquired his current role as the drummer for Philadelphia electronic act, the Disco Biscuits. Since winning the “drum off” held by the Biscuits in Atlantic City, Allen has played 450-500 shows with the quartet including shows at the Gorge Amphitheatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Tweed

Electro rock powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of disco, indie rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of composition and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging disco dance parties driven by their own incessant beat.

Hailing from Philadelphia, members Joe Vela, AJ DiBiase, Jon Tomczak, Dan McDonald, and Charlie Field have graced the stages of countless clubs and festivals across the country since forming at University of Delaware in 2010. Some of their most notable performances include Peach Festival, Camp Bisco, Jam On The River, Brooklyn Bowl, Union Transfer, and the TLA having shared the bill with acts like the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, Odesza, Tipper, Lotus, Reggie Watts, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Beats Antique, Lettuce, Papadosio, JRAD, Bassnectar, and Santana. With relentless style, blissful melody, and a uniquely cohesive sound, Tweed has proven they can bring the party anywhere they go.
