Vermont based jam band Twiddle has announced their headlining debut at famed venue Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado. Twiddle will perform two sets on Star Wars day, Friday, May 4. Twiddle will also share the stage with California based roots/reggae/dub outfit Stick Figure. Florida based world beat/indie band the Hip Abduction will play in support.
Twiddle has graced the Red Rocks stage twice in support of String Cheese Incident (2015) and the Disco Biscuits(2016). Their 2017 show with moe. was cancelled after moe. announced a hiatus while bassist Rob Derhak underwent treatment for nasopharyngeal cancer.
The announcement comes as Twiddle hits the road in 2018 along with Stick Figure and Iya Terra for sixteen dates. Twiddle has had a stellar year in 2017 and continued to make headlines. The year was highlighted by a showing on the Billboard charts as their much-anticipated release PLUMP debuted at #6 on the Alternative New Artist Album charts and a sit-in from Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh at the band’s Tumble Down Music Festival.
Self-taught musician Scott Woodruff writes, produces and records under the moniker, Stick Figure. Woodruff tours with a full band to craft his live shows. His latest release, Set in Stone, has solidified the musician’s vision of a new melodic subgenre.
The Hip Abduction toured in support of Twiddle during August and September of 2017. The vibrant St. Petersburg, FL-based collective celebrates a mutual appreciation for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music.
Twiddle Fan Club and AEG presales are available online as of the announcement. Several pre-sale VIP packages are available with options including a special VIP performance at Red Rocks on Thursday, May 3. General on sale goes live on Friday, December 15 at Noon EST.
