Papadosio Earth Night Columbus 2014

Papadosio Announces Earth Night 2014: A Solstice Celebration

Papadosio’s Earth Night Solstice Celebration Returns to Columbus, OH Friday, December 19 at Park Street Saloon (Live PA Set) & Saturday, December 20 at LC Pavilion. This year’s Celebration Features Art, Workshops & Live Music from Papadosio, Dopapod, Jimkata, EarthCry & Third Nature.

Fresh off their thrilling performance supporting Lotus at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and two nights at Resonance Music & Arts Festival, Papadosio is excited to announce Earth Night 2014, returning to Columbus, Ohio for two nights: Friday, December 19 at Park Street Saloon featuring a more versatile/instrumental Live PA set and Saturday, December 20 at the L.C. Pavilion. Expanding the celebration, this annual event now coincides with a sister event being held at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado on December 13 in conjunction with Colorado’s Conscious Alliance.
Papadosio Earth Night Columbus 2014
For two nights and one day in Central Ohio, Earth Night celebrates the solstice in a ceremonious dance of music, art, and spirit.

Inspired by the globally celebrated Earth Day, Earth Night roots itself in understanding the struggle for human and environmental rights while taking time to recognize the wisdom and practices of the ancient and indigenous that connected us to our planet in ways we hardly have the language for today.

Joining Papadosio at the L.C. Pavilion are close friends and allies, Dopapod and Jimkata. With no regard towards stylistic boundaries, the sound that emerges from Dopapod both live and in the studio is as varied and diverse as the many influences the band adapts from.

Similarly, having been a mainstay of the Northeast jam circuit since 2006, Jimkata’s refined electro-rock sound is one of a band that has found its voice after years of experimentation. It’s more indie rock than jam, and more 90′s electronica than modern day EDM; yet the five-piece continues to traverse both terrains in style.

In addition, supporting the band for this very rare Live PA set at Park Street Saloon is Papadosio’s own Anthony Thogmartin, as his experimental side-project in sound and environmental philanthropy – EarthCry, in addition to Third Nature – the young trio now based out of Asheville, NC dedicated to exploring the sonic capabilities of our collective consciousness.
A limited number of two-day tickets are available through Papadosio’s ticketing site at http://papadosio.ticketfly.com beginning Thursday, October 9 at 10 AM EDT.

Limited advance two-day passes are $20, single-day tickets are $10. Regular two-day passes are $35, single-day tickets are $25 and at the door $30/$40.

Complete Earth Night details are available at www.Papadosio.com.


Brand New Dopapod Video + 4th studio album Out 11/11

Words by Genevieve Calkins Photos by Phil Sunkel Over the past few years Dopapod has crept onto the festival scene, drawing a bigger and bigger audience with every show. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or are just discovering them, chances are if you’ve been to a festival anywhere near the East Coast in the last four years, they’ve been on the lineup.

While they are still on the incline to more mainstream success, it seems safe to say at this point that Dopapod is making their way to the top and they’re taking the musical process more seriously than ever.
With their fourth studio album titled Never Odd or Even dropping this November, it’s sounding like we can expect a cleaner finish on Dopapod’s generally grungy sound. Known for their danceable, psychedelic rock, the band appears to be moving in a direction more focused on lyrical content and melody.

While we must wait for 11/11 to hear the full album, if the first single, “Picture in Picture”, is anything to go on, we can expect to hear a very different sound than what we’ve heard on their previous studio albums. _DSC5008

The band will be playing two album release shows in the midst of a massive countrywide tour, one in NYC at The Gramercy Theatre 11/21 and the other in Philadelphia at District N9NE 11/22.

We’ve grown to love the sound these guys put out at every show, needless to say we’re beyond excited to hear what they’ve been working on. You can expect to see us front and center for the NYC show!
