twentytwenty was recorded in 2020, on February 27th and 28th, before live audiences at Apogee Studios in Santa Monica, California.[1] The seventeen track live album features some previously released songs that have evolved with inputs from additional band-mates and the album debuts four new unreleased songs.[2][3]

* Sara Niemietz (vocals - guitar)
* W.G. Snuffy Walden (guitar)
* Martin Diller (drums)
* Andrew Kesler (keys)
* Jonathan Richards (bass)
* Alex Nester (vocals)
* Mollie Weaver (vocals)

The band reunited on the the eve of the album release (October 15, 2020) for the first time since the live recording sessions. Two online performances were live-streamed with video provided by Veeps.com. Ty Bailie filled in for Andrew Kesler on keys.[4]

Former KTTV television host Carlos Amezcua interviewed Niemietz for BEONDTV, in advance of the album's October 15, 2020 release event,[5] which consisted of two online performances to accommodate international time zones and viewership. The event(s) were hosted by Feinstein's at Vitello's in Studio City, CA without a live audience present due to lingering Covid-19 concerns.
