Twiddle wrapped up a leg of their 2018 touring schedule this past weekend with a run of Northeast shows that featured several guests, including multiple collaborations with guitarist Grahame Lesh and members of his band Midnight North, who were opening for Twiddle at the gigs.
The bands rounded out the run on Saturday night with a show at The State Theater in Portland, ME, that saw Lesh and his Midnight North bandmates join the host group for an encore cover of the Grateful Dead’s Eyes of the World. Lesh also guested on the second-set-closing “Cabbage Face.”
The previous two nights, in Fairfield, CT, and Providence, RI, Lesh also joined Twiddle for a few tunes, including encores of Jimmy Cliff’s “The Harder They Come” on Thursday and Twiddle’s own “Hattis’ Jam” and “When It Rains It Pours” on Friday. Other guests throughout the three nights included Wiley Griffin, sometimes-Phish-collaborator Carl Gerhard, Steve Girardi and Spencer Zubrow.
