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
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
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!
