Twiddle Welcomes Turkuaz’s Shira Elias & Taz Niederauer For Capitol Theatre Closer [Videos]

first_imgTwiddle closed their first set at The Capitol with a powerful rendition of “Angel From Montgomery”, the John Prine 1971 classic that was largely made popular by Bonnie Raitt a few years later. For this strong set-closing number, the band invited out Turkuaz songstress Shira Elias as well as the young guitarist Brandon “Taz” Niederauer to help push the song to its limits and making for a truly special moment during the show.“Angel From Montgomery”For second set, Twiddle returned with a set-opening “Tiberius” followed by the classic combination of “Hatti’s Jam” and “When It Rains, It Pours”. Similarly jammy throughout, the band segued into “White Light” before re-entering “Tiberius” to close the opening non-stop sting of five tunes. Brandon “Taz” Niederauer once again returned to the stage for a rendition of “Milk” before the show closed out with “Carter Candlestick” into a massive return to the show-opening “Jamflowman”. Taz also stayed on for the energized, show-closing rendition of the Grateful Dead’s “Shakedown Street” for encore.“Tiberius” On Saturday night, Twiddle continued their Thanksgiving run, rounding out a two-night stand at The Capitol Theatre, the historic venue in Port Chester, New York. The band has been clearly energized for this run, and coming off of Organ Freeman’s opening set, the Vermont quartet was dialed in from the get-go. However, the true highlights of last night’s show came in the form of surprise collaborations across the evening, including with Turkuaz vocalist Shira Elias and young guitar prodigy and increasingly frequent Twiddle collaborator Brandon “Taz” Niederauer.Organ Freeman’s Opening Set Twiddles’ first set at The Capitol Theatre was more or less non-stop, with the group focusing on working transitions across songs and weaving and returning to previously played numbers. After the energetic and bounding opening “Jamflowman”, Twiddle transitioned through a “Dr. Remidi’s Melodium” sandwich, which itself contained the PLUMP Chapter 1 classic “Every Soul”. Coming out of the second “Dr. Remidi”, the band quickly segued through a return to “Jamflowman” before landing in the perennial crowd-pleaser “Doinkenboink!!”. This number too was given the proper treatment, itself containing a rendition of the old-school favorite “Latin Tang”, which was originally penned by Twiddle’s former bassist Billy Comstock before Zdenek Gubb took over on bass duties for the band.“Jamflowman” “Milk” “Shakedown Street”Setlist: Twiddle | The Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 11/25/2017Set 1: Jamflowman > Dr. Remidi’s Melodium[1] > Every Soul > Dr. Remidi’s Melodium > Jamflowman > Doinkinbonk!!! > Latin Tang > Doinkinbonk!!!, Angel From Montgomery[2]Set 2: Tiberius[3] > Hatti’s Jam > When It Rains, It Pours[4] > White Light > Tiberius, Milk[5], Carter Candlestick > JamflowmanEncore: Shakedown Street[1] “Dr. Remidi’s Melodium” contained a Gubb Dump looping solo and Brook playing on Gubb’s bass with drum sticks.[2] “Angel From Montgomery” featured Shira Elias (Turkuaz) on vocals and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer on guitar.[3] “Tiberius” contained an “Apples” tease.[4] “When It Rains, It Pours” contained a “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” tease.[5] “Milk” featured Brandon “Taz” Niederauer on guitar.[Cover photo: Andy Gardecki on Instagram]last_img
