Vermont jam band Twiddle hit the famed Troubadour in Los Angeles on Friday (March 1) where they delivered a setlist shout out to the L.A. audience by spelling out “Los Angeles Jams” with the first letter of each song from their sets. The quartet has now released the audio from the show. Listen to "Smoke Two Joints" below and check out the setlist via Jambase.
Twiddle also welcomed a number of guests during their show including guitarist Marcus Rezak on the second set closer, “Mamunes The Faun,” as well as L.A. reggae outfit Iya Terra on the encore, “Smoke Two Joints.” Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig--who chatted with Twiddle guitarist Mihali Savoulidis on a recent podcast--also came out to support the band.
Twiddle has released a pair of live shows in early 2019 capturing their 2018 New Year’s run in Boston including their Dec. 30 show at Paradise Rock Club and their 2018-19 NYE show at The House of Blues. The shows are currently available to stream on Spotify. Twiddle’s latest studio album, the double LP Plump, arrived in 2017.
