Twiddle is a band that comes out Vermont and they’ve been climbing up the ranks in the jamband world for years. Besides the music being incredible, the way they’ve cultivated community is pretty remarkable. I had the pleasure of attending night two of their annual Frendsgiving shows at the Capital Theater.
In a few episodes of my podcast Groove Therapy with Dr. Leah Taylor, she taught me a concept called self-other merging. What this means is that when a group of people are together dancing to music, the lines between you and others merge. This is why you can feel an immense amount of love for people you don’t really know well after you’ve experienced this. It’s also why live music can be so healing for so many. Right now the world can feel so divided, but when you’re at a show all of that melts away and we call become one. It’s magical.
I experienced this at Twiddle and it was transcendent.
If you’re not familiar with them, here’s their music page on Spotify for you to get acquainted. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
