This weekend we had the pleasure of covering Twiddle’s incredible performances at the infamous Brooklyn Bowl. As a precursor to this weekend’s release of their new album, PLUMP, Twiddle hosted a weekend of performances for their New York City fanbase. For those who couldn’t take the trip to Brooklyn, the band, true to form, went out of their way to provide a free live stream and produce full HQ recordings with the help of Relix Magazine.
We were only able to attend night one, and like each Twiddle concert we’ve attended in the past, Mickey, Dempsey, Brook and Gubb made sure to plan a few unique surprises to solidify a memorable night. Here were our highlights:
- During the second half of “Lost in the Cold,” the band released fake snow and flooded the crowd with white lights. The feels were too real during this moment.
- During “Apples,” the guys injected a holiday twist by transitioning in and out of “Little Drummer Boy.”
- Similarly, “Lost in the Cold,” had a “Carol of the Bells” jam.
- Before “Beethoven & Greene,” Dempsey (keys) took control of the drums while Mickey (guitar & vocals) manned the keys. After this impromptu jam, the whole band came out to perform their halmark version of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” as part of the encore.
The guys will be performing two consecutive nights this coming weekend at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston as part two of their PLUMP album release celebration. If you’re in the area, cop your tickets here before they sell out. Further, if you haven’t stumbled across this gift already, Twiddle quietly posted PLUMP on their BandCamp website earlier this week for fans to stream for free and purchase to download. Check out “Chapter 1” of PLUMP here!
Finally – this summer we interviewed Brook (Twiddle’s drummer) as part of our Catskill Chill coverage. The conversation was awesome; he even talked with us for the first time about a potential Twiddle Music Festival. If you missed it, check it out here.
