Dopapod Tickets

Dopapod Tickets - Dopapod Tour

Dopapod Schedule

Boston-based musical quartet Dopapod is more than just an up-and-coming, genre-bending hippie group. The talented young musicians "aren't just a jam band, more so a band that improvises." The members that make up this musical experience strive to combine fundamental elements of the greatest musical stylings into a sound that stands out on its own. As RVA magazine has explained it, "They are an electric band without computers. They are a metal band with groove and soul. They are a jazz band with less wine and more acid. They are what would happen if Zappa, Yes, Deadmau5 and The Meters all sat down for a cup of coffee." The thoughtful and deliberate compilations of Dopapod bring you a fulfilling and aurally pleasing finished product, and craving for more. And, that is just the reason that in the past three years, Dopapod has cultivated such a huge and dedicated fan base. So, get up and shake down with the progressive band, Dopapod, at some of these top-notch venues: House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio; Broome County Forum in Binghamton, New York; Kirby Center in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania; State Theatre in Kalamazoo, Michigan; and Terminal West in Atlanta, Georgia.


Dopapod Background

The origin of the band name itself reflects the bandmates' unique and random persona. "We threw a bunch of Scrabble letters out onto the board, and that's what we came up with," former drummer Neal Evans explained to Live High Five. Although Dopapod has been touring nationally for the last three years, playing more than 150 shows per year, they have absolutely no plans on slowing down or letting up. Dopapod has lent their musical mastery to the most well-known festivals on the scene these days, including Rootwire, Gathering Of The Vibes, Burning Man, Strangecreek, Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Bear Creek, Camp Bisco and The Big Up. They have additionally worked with the members of such outfits like Soulive, Phish, Morphene and G. Love and Special Sauce. The members of Dopapod consist of Eli Winderman (keyboards); Chuck James (bass); Scotty Zwang (drums); Rob Compa (guitar); and Luke Stratton (sounds and lights). And, in case you're wondering, sounds and lighting IS that important to these performers. Having attended the esteemed Berkeley College of Music, it is no wonder that these guys focus on more than just a cool sound. But it wasn't until their most recent record that they added vocals. They were previously a strictly instrumental band. However, not a band to stay in their comfort zone, they mixed it up on the 2012 release, Redivider, to much acclaim from fans and critics alike.


Dopapod Albums

Dopapod's growing discography consists of Radar (2009); I Saw Live Dopapod, Evil Was I (2011); Drawn Onward (2012); and their newest release, Redivider (2012).


Dopapod Trivia

Dopapod is clearly not a group to follow the protocol of fellow artists. Rather than record in a stuffy studio, they brought the studio to them. They cut their latest album at Tyrone Farm in Pomfret, Connecticut, a secluded and completely solar-powered farm.


Dopapod Concert Experience

If you're up for a good time with some fun-loving hula-hooping music fanatics, then go, now, grab some glow sticks and head to the nearest Dopapod show. The experience can be assimilated to experiencing The Grateful Dead jam with Primus during a killer Pink Floyd laser show. No aspect of a Dopapod show is left ignored. The concert aesthetics are almost as important as the music itself, showcasing Dopapod's desire to deliver on all fronts.They are definitely some professionals. The communication between the bandmates is pure magic - they have the ability to transition smoothly from the structure of a studio song and lead into a funky instrumental piece fluidly. That is not an easy feat by any means, even for the most seasoned of performers. And keep a sharp ear; these guys are known for throwing in some well-known and nostalgic tunes and theme songs that most of us grew up with. At the recent Aug. 9 show at The Camel, they played pieces of the themes from 90s television cartoons Doug and Rugrats, as well as excerpts from Mary Had A Little Lamb. Dopapod's ability to involve the crowd makes the audience feel as a part of the show as the band itself, as they love to and are known for, their banter with audience members. Due to their genre-bending sound, the fans themselves are as unique and characteristic as the band themselves. So, even if you're a metalhead with a weakness for the synthesizer or a hipster that just wants to dance, it's fine. They won't judge you. But they may pull you onto the stage. So, if you're in need to venture out and ready to expand your musical horizons (and, of course, get your groove on), hop on StubHub right now before tickets to the energetic, experimental Dopapod pass you by!
