Twiddle Honors Tom Petty As Thanksgiving Run Continues At Capitol Theatre


Last night Twiddle continued their 2017 Thanksgiving Holiday Run run with the first of two nights at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The Vermont-based band offered up a two set show at the rock palace that saw them honor Tom Petty with their debut take on tune from Wildflowers during their encore.

Twiddle opened up the night with a lengthy segue-filled run that kicked off with “Subconscious Prelude,” from their 2007 debut album The Natural Evolution of Consciousness. From their the band stringed together a run that included their take on Tears For Fears’ “Mad World,” and a pair of new tunes – “Nicodemus Portulay,” which was debuted at the Playstation Theater in New York City back in April and “Peas And Carrots,” which was played for just the fourth time ever.

The four-piece act’s second set saw them continue to dig in on newer material from PLUMP: Chapter Two with just their fifth performance of “Enter,” which included a tease of Beethoven’s most recognizable compositions – “Für Elise,” as well as takes on “Orlando’s” and “Drifter.” Mihali Savoulidis & Co. kicked off a jam-filled run with “Apples” that saw them working in references to the “X-Files Theme” and “The Flintstones Theme” before seguing into “Mamunes The Faun” and back into “Apples.” The quartet’s second frame was brought to a close the way they got the show started with a return to “Subconscious Prelude.”

Twiddle closed out the night with a tribute to the late Tom Petty by serving up their debut take on “You Don’t Know How It Feels,” from the singer-songwriter’s 1994 solo release Wildflowers.
