Load remaining images Twiddle wrapped up their Thanksgiving 2016 Tour with a two-night escapade at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA this past weekend, November 25th and 26th. In similar fashion as last year’s run at the same venue, Twiddle brought the Thanksgiving cheer to an eager crowd to celebrate the holiday weekend.Opening night one was The Jauntee, a band local to Massachusetts who have a psychedelic sound truly unique in the northeast. The quartet got the weekend off to a great start before Twiddle took the stage around 10:30 pm.Twiddle started their weekend catalog with the warm tones of “Dusk Til’ Dawn” with drummer Brook Jordan on lead vocals. They meandered their way into a strong “Doink n Boink” before settling in and jamming fluidly through the rest of set one which ended with an emotional “White Light.” Going into the first set break of the weekend the message to “Love Relentlessly” echoed through the crowd, and it was no question that the love would permeate through every soul in the building all weekend.“Brown Chicken Brown Cow” set the tone for a fun and bouncy second set with “Mamunes the Faun” and “Fire on High” being clear highlights. The band encored with “Daydream Farmer” before the crowd headed back to their homes and hotels to rest up and prepare for a second night of music ahead.Night two opened up with lespecial, a 3-piece band heavily influenced by Primus with a hint of electronic and reggae beats. Their set made for very identifiable and enjoyable sound.Twiddle gave a friendly nod to lespecial when they included “Too Many Puppies,” a Primus cover, into their first set of the night, keeping the heavy rock vibes going strong. Mihali Savoulidis continued to shred his way through the night before ending the set with the vocally driven songs “Five” and “Every Soul,” which can be tear jerkers for many and were an appropriate way to end an emotional set.Check out Twiddle’s extended jam on “The Box” in set two, with a cover of Daft Punk’s “Robot Rock” sandwiched in the middle.The weekend ended with a touching cover of Grateful Dead’s “Eyes of the World”, with Savoulidis playing a 50th Anniversary Garcia Tiger beautifully crafted by Lieber guitars.The weekend was one not soon to be forgotten, but fans have much to look forward to with yet another two night run set for the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY this December!

Gabby Agbonlahor was denied by Neil Taylor in the first half but Villa struggled to create and remain three points clear of the Barclays Premier League bottom three with Swansea eighth. Alan Hutton replaced Matt Lowton in Villa’s only change while Federico Fernandez came in for Jordi Amat for the visitors. And the Swans threatened first when Gylfi Sigurdsson tricked his way into the box, found the overlapping Taylor but Gomis could not beat Brad Guzan from the cut back. It set a pattern for the first half as the Swans tried to pick their way through the Villa defence with little end produce. Gomis was Swansea’s biggest threat early on and Ki slipped the striker in but Guzan was equal to his angled drive. Fernandez then produced a fine tackle to stop Christian Benteke breaking free in the area but Villa offered little in the opening half an hour. It was reflected in the terraces with Villa Park flat, waiting for something to happen after the swashbuckling way their side dispatched Sunderland last week. It took until the 32nd minute for Villa to test Lukas Fabianski, when Fabian Delph shot straight at him following Scott Sinclair’s run. The forward bagged his sixth goal of the season with just three minutes left as the game looked to be heading towards a stalemate. Gomis had been denied twice by Brad Guzan and Wayne Routledge had a shot cleared off the line as the Swans made most of the running at Villa Park. Bafetimbi Gomis’ late strike clinched a deserved 1-0 win for Swansea as Aston Villa failed to climb away from danger. But Villa were second best and survived a scare four minutes later when Guzan spilled Sigurdsson’s free kick to Routledge and his follow up was hacked off the line by Ciaran Clark. While Swansea were slick they failed to find a first-half breakthrough and the trend continued immediately after the re-start. Guzan tipped over Sigurdsson’s 30-yard free kick before Gomis nodded over at the far post and the hosts almost cashed in on those misses on 56 minutes. Benteke headed down Hutton’s cross for Agbonlahor but, in front of goal, the striker could not get the ball out of his feet quick enough and Taylor managed to block his six-yard effort. Villa had wrestled themselves a foothold in the game and Sinclair was inches away from connecting with Agbonlahor’s driven cross before dragging wide with 20 minutes left. Jefferson Montero, on for Sigurdsson, had given Swansea a different dimension though and his barnstorming run on 74 minutes left Bacuna for dead, only for Clark to block Gomis’ shot. Delph fired over with six minutes remaining as the game meandered to a close before Gomis won it in the 87th minute. Montero had made a difference for the visitors and his excellent low centre found Gomis who fired in from six yards. Sinclair then almost grabbed an equaliser against his former club a minute later but volleyed over from 10 yards. And Routledge could have finished it in injury time when he raced clean through but Guzan saved. Press Association
