Memorial Meltdown to take place this May in Lake George with Twiddle and Frends

The 2022 summer concert season will kick off on Memorial Day weekend with Twiddle & Frends at the inaugural Memorial Meltdown. Scheduled to take place at the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons in downtown Lake George on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, the Memorial Meltdown will feature two sets each night by Vermont jamband Twiddle, along with performances by Lucid, Marble Eyes and the Whiskey Dicks (with special guests Ryan Dempsey of Twiddle and guitar virtuoso Joe Cirotti) on Saturday and Roots of Creation, Sophistafunk and Baked Shrimp on Sunday.

The two-day event, produced by the same folks who bring the Labor Day music extravaganza Adirondack Independence Music Festival at the same location, will also feature a variety of food and craft vendors.  Gates open each day at 1:30pm with music set to begin at 2:30pm and run until about 11pm. 

Now in their 17th year, Twiddle has built an impressive resume spanning Red Rocks to Bonnaroo, and multiple sellouts of historic rock venues across the country. In the live setting, more and more people are invigorated by Twiddle’s community, promoting positivity and the band’s skillful improvisational music. So many like-minded people believe in the greater good, and they find that good in Twiddle, who donates $1 of every ticket sale to The White Light Foundation, Twiddle’s affiliate 501c3 organization.  The White Light Foundation, in turn, makes financial contributions to non-profits local to where the band is playing.
