Twiddle played three nights at New York’s Irving Plaza to coincide with Phish’s Baker’s Dozen kickoff at nearby Madison Square Garden and the group got in the spirit welcoming past Phish collaborators and other guests throughout.
The July 21 show found the group teaming up with the Giant Country Horns, who have previously shared the stage with Phish, for the entire first set that included takes on “Orlando’s,” “Moments,” “Polluted Beauty,” “The Catapillar,” “Brick of Barley” and “Lost in the Cold.”
Twiddle’s finale on July 22 featured a number of guests including Brandon Niederauer, who joined in on a number of songs throughout the night including “Syncopated Healing,” “Apples” and “Drifter” early on before also adding Turkuaz’s Shira Ellis to the fold to lead the group on a cover of “Angel from Montgomery.”
Niederauer and Turkuaz drummer Michelangelo Carubba stayed out to help the band close the show with “Latin Tang.”
Next up for Twiddle is a pair of shows in Burlington, VT this weekend as a part of Tumble Down 2017.
