Dopapod Debuts Original & Welcomes Horns In Philadelphia
Dopapod swung through the Theatre Of Living Arts in Philadelphia this past Saturday. The Boston-based four-piece debuted an original song and also welcomed a horn section during a pair of Radiohead covers to close out the first set.
Dopapod opened up the show with said new number, dubbed “Velcro,” which saw keyboardist Eli Winderman get right into the funky tune on his Moog synthesizer. Winderman, guitarist Rob Compa, drummer Neal “Fro” Evans and bassist Chuck Jones would close out the first set with Radiohead‘s “Kid A” from the legendary British band’s groundbreaking 2000 album of the same name. Dopapod then headed into Kid A track “The National Anthem” on which they welcomed a horn section.
The second set got underway with “Bats In The Cave,” from the band’s 2012 album Drawn Onward, which segued into an intro only rendition of “Mucho.” Dopapod would also dust off “Grow,” for the first time since May 23, 2015 for a total of 274 shows. The band closed out the second frame with “Sonic” into “Picture In Picture.” Dopapod would retake the stage for an encore of “French Bowling” to close out the evening.
