Twiddle’s annual Frendsgiving weekend run took place at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on November 29th and 30th featuring support from Buffalo, NY’s Aqueous both nights. Music lovers were also treated with sets from Eggy and Dogs In A Pile at Garcia’s attached to the beloved theatre. Night 1 took launch with “Gatsby the Great” which led right into “Zazu’s Fight.” It didn’t stop there because the Vermont based group went back into Gatsby only to jump into “White Light” just to go into Gatsby once more! Fan favorite “Framkenfoote” was up to bat with the first set closing with “Life Back Now,” the bands first time ever playing the song.

Twiddle got the second set started with “Milk” featuring up and coming guitar shredder Brandon “Taz” Niederauer who would also appear on “Apples” following an epic renditions of “Milk.” Later in the set, the group preimiered another song called “Slipping In The Kitchen” followed by a “Hatti’s Jam” > “When It Rains It Pours” second set closer. Twiddle encored the night with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” featuring Aqueous’ Mike Gantzer and “Taz.”

Night two opened up with “Orlandos” which led into “Jamflowman”(who don’t give a damn) followed by a smooth transition into “Gatsby The Great” one more time. This set featured a lot of early tunes including “Beehop” and “Carter Candlestick.” The second nights first set ended off with another first time played song titled “Mistakes.”Twiddle's Frendsgiving 2019 at the Capitol Theatre (188 of 257).jpg

After set break, Twiddle got the crowd grooving with a stellar version of “Latin Tang” featuring David Loss and Mike Gantzer of Aqueous on guitar. After a rocking “The Box,” Twiddle tipped their hats off to Keyboardist Scott Hannay, who successfully proposed to his girlfriend that same night in Albany, NY during his Video Games set. The weekend ended off with “Lost in the Cold.” Check our photos and full set-lists from Twiddle’s Frendsgiving weekend at the Capitol Theatre below:
