Twin Sister at Coco 66...
Twin Sister took the stage at Matchless with 8 minutes to go before midnight, which is when Matchless shows are supposed to shut down. They played til probably 20 past 12. You tell me why.... did you guess? Yeah, the answer is because they are a fucking incredible band. The sound guy knew it and everyone in the room, which was at capacity, knew it too.The above-described show happened on Friday, February 26th at Matchless. On March 6th, Twin Sister played another awesome show at Coco 66 with two excellent jazz fusion groups - Amniotic (which features Jen Shyu, Jamie Saft, Knox Chandler and Bobby Previte on drums) and the costumed Jerseyband.
The band moves with the music like lava runs down the side of a volcano. It's like something that must happen. And even though it looks like its moving slowly, its actually gushing pretty quickly, and its scorching hot. [Microphone Memory Emotion]
Upcoming Twin Sister shows include a bunch of SXSW dates, one of which is the BrooklynVegan Day Party at Club DeVille on March 19th with Centro-matic, Lucero, The Antlers and more TBA. Their Vampires with Dreaming Kids EP is available for free above.
Amniotic played their first ever show at Issue Project Room in October. Video from that show and more pictures from Coco 66 are below...
