Sunday, Feb. 24, 9 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Get set Twiddle fans; Gubbulidis featuring Mihali Savoulidis and Zdenek Gubb are making waves at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub Sunday, Feb. 24.

Gubbulidis originated in Castleton, and was created when Twiddle band members Zdenek Gubb and Mihali Savoulidis wanted to continue their musical journey during Twiddle’s downtime. Gubb is featured on bass guitar, while Savoulidis contributes the main vocals and strums on the acoustic guitar. Fun fact: the name was created by blending “Gubb” and the “ulidis” from the members’ last names.

The two met in 2007 after auditioning for Twiddle. It’s safe to say that ever since, it was all happy endings. A passion for guitar is an understatement for Savoulidis, who can jam on everything from electric to acoustic and even some solo grooving while on stage. Gubb shreds so hard on bass that he is known to produce melted faces and some even say he emulates Bill Laswell or Les Claypool.

Purchase advance tickets online or at Jax Food & Games. Doors open at 8 p.m. and this is a 21-plus show.

Pickle Barrel Nighclub is located at 1741 Killington Road, Killington. For more information, visit
