TAUK traveled to Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, NY on Saturday for the latest stop on the band’s Chaos Companion tour. The concert saw the instrumental ensemble mine its latest studio LP which arrived late last month.
Opening up with the Eastern-tinged “Make Your Move” found on the new album, the band shot right out of the gate. Drummer Isaac Teel could be seen sporting his new drum head, adorned with the band’s name stylized in the NASA logo, an interstellar design choice that meshes with the group’s video for Chaos Companion track “Moon Dub“. TAUK also reached back through its catalog for celebrated fan favorites including “Time’s Up”, interspersed with plenty of love for the new album with runs through “The Let Out” and more.
Guitarist Matt Jalbert was temporarily thrust into the role of MC as he entertained the crowd with friendly banter as Teel replaced the snare drum he broke just two songs into the set. The NYC-bred outfit, who just completed a new studio album in Long Island, was greeted with a warm welcome from The Big Apple as TAUK finally returned home.
