Review & Photos: Twin Peaks

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 by Joe

Twin Peaks played twice in the same day on April 12, 2017 for the Doug Fir Lounge; once earlier in the day for an all ages show, and again late in the evening for a 21 and over crowd. But you couldn’t even tell.

The band was loud, energetic, fun, and the happiest to be playing onstage that night. Not once did the band show the slightest bit of exhaustion. The band came out on stage, carrying their instruments and beer, and band member Cadien Lake James walked onstage carrying Clay Frankel on his back while Clay had a beer in each hand. This set the tone for the night the audience would experience. Other memorable moments from the set included Cadien borrowing an audience member’s glasses for the duration of a song, and Clay writhing on the ground shredding his guitar beaming with a smile. Each band member gave it their all onstage and played their heart out. The chemistry and energy onstage was infectious, and members of the tightly packed crowd of the Doug Fir were dancing and singing along to every song.

This band is impressively balanced and doesn’t have an obvious lead, four out of five members sang lead on at least one song. This adds variety and interesting element to not only the set, but the band itself. It gives the band a different level of intimacy and personality, where each member is represented and voiced equally.
