Dopapod Shares Palindromes Set From Resonance


Dopapod played a set at last month’s Resonance Music & Arts Festival in which the first letter of each song spelled out “palindromes.” The quartet released pro-shot video of the set put together by videographer MKDevo.

The band’s love of palindromes, words or phrases that read the same forward or backward, is well documented. Not only is “Dopapod” a palindrome, but the title of each of the group’s six studio albums are palindromes. Dopapod kicked off the palindrome set on September 19 with “Plaese Haalp” off 2017’s Megagem and then covered System Of A Down’s “Aerials.” Next, a run of “Landmines” and “Indian Grits” was followed by the band’s first rendition of the Radiohead classic “Nude” in nearly three years.

Dopapod’s set continued with a huge bust out as they dusted off their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed & Confused” for the first time since June 2013. “Roid Rage,” “Onionhead” and “Mucho” then led into “Ellemenno,” a tune from their 2009 debut album Radar they hadn’t performed since returning from a year-plus hiatus in April. Dopapod ended the set by debuting the title track of guitarist Rob Compa‘s recently released solo album, Same Damn Thing.
