Dopapod Brooklyn Bowl Preview

Dopapod are closing what one fan called the “best tour of their career” with a 2 night run at Brooklyn Bowl this Friday April 24th and Saturday April 25th.  They have been on fire lately, and there is no indication that anything will change this weekend.  On the final night of their recent 3 night run in Cambridge, Mass, the band busted out a 56 minute cover of Pink Floyd's "Echoes," one of the obvious highlights of 2015 thus far.  One avid fan and member of the DopaFam fan group had this to say about the bold undertaking, and about the band in general:
"My 30th show was this past Sunday and they melted my god damn face off with a god damn 56 minute and 46 second cover of Pink Floyd's Echoes. Luke Stratton Designs is blowing minds right now and on top of his light duties he gets soundboards released almost as fast as I need to listen to them. They are freaking nuts."

The daring Pink Floyd cover, coupled with their surprise cover of No Doubt's "Just a Girl" at AURA Fest, shows that there is no predicting in advance what will happen at a Dopapod show. 
The band is off and running with a big summer looming ahead for them.  They have already played AURA Fest and have many more festivals on their summer schedule such as Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Mad Tea Party Jam, Electric Forest, and Peach Fest with more possibilities to come.  Don't think, however, that the band is only playing festivals this year. They are also playing Red Rocks, opening for The String Cheese Incident on July 25th, which most Dopapod fans seem to be the most excited for in the band’s upcoming schedule, and they are sure to announce more shows and tours to cap off an already stellar year.  They are a must see act at any festival or on their own for an evening. Another fan had this to say about his favorite band:
"They have a uniquely captivating sound that seems to keep a lot of us coming back for more. The first two or three times I saw them play I remember not being able to figure out if I liked them or not but found myself going to the shows regardless."
This just goes to show the type of effect that this amazing young band has on its fans, as well as new listeners around the world. We at Grateful Music cannot wait to see what they have in store for us at the Brooklyn Bowl and beyond!
