Twiddle Welcomes Zebulon Bowles, Covers Led Zeppelin In Boulder [Full Audio]

first_imgTwiddle closed out their two-night sold-out run at the Boulder Theater on Saturday, February 11th, joined again by the talented openers Aqueous.Aqueous’ set was a powerful start to night, as the four-piece from Buffalo, NY drove through composed originals that pulled from a plethora of jam influences. There was the prog-rock of Umphrey’s McGee, the trance-jams of the Disco Biscuits, the feel-good guitar harmonies of Moe, even glitched-out moments of fusion reminiscent of acts like Snarky Puppy. Front man Mike Gantzer’s tasteful guitar solos and smooth vocals dominated the set, but it was guitarist Dave Loss that stepped in for lead vocals on a speedy cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Bertha” that dropped back into the catchy original “Kitty Chaser” to end the set.By the time Twiddle took the stage, the young crowd had filed in to capacity and the historic theater was alive with energy. The band has risen through the jam ranks quickly, and even 2000 miles from their Vermont home a faithful family of “frends” sang the words to most every tune.Twiddle’s first set, and the show in general, was a refreshing throw back to the band’s older material. The music had a focus on jazzy composition and open improvisation, as opposed to the more accessible pop-reggae of their latest release Plump.Mihali Savoulidis got his moments to croon on cuts like “Daydream Farmer” and “Every Soul,” but it was the mathy shreds and extended explorations on instrumentals like “Brick of Barley,” “Doinkinboink!!!” and the new track “Blunderbuss” that saw the band at their best. Zebulon Bowles of Hot Buttered Rum joined on violin for two tunes, including “Latin Twang” to end the second set. The band encored with the only cover of the night, the reggae-tinged Led Zeppelin tune “D’Yer Maker.”You can stream the full audio of Twiddle’s show below, courtesy of taper The Space Fish.Check out some videos of Twiddle’s set, below, as well as full setlists for both artists.
