Dopapod Live at Empire, Portland Maine with the Cyborg Trio!
Thumping up from basement parties in Boston, to bumping the sounds systems of major venues all across the east coast, Dopapod has been steadily growing as a musical tour-de-force for 3 years. Dopapod’s debut album, “Radar” has received critical acclaim from national publications such as Performer Magazine, calling Dopapod’s members “incredibly talented musicians”, and that the band has “set the bar respectfully high for their first full length recording”. Dopapod has shared the stage with many great bands and musicians such as Sam Kininger (Soulive, Lettuce), Lotus, Brothers Past, Biodeisel (Johnny Rabb) Dave Grippo (Phish, Trey Anastasio) Timo Shanko (G-Love n Special Sauce) Dana Colley (Morphine) Mr. Rourke (Club D'elf) and more.
The innovative Cyborg Trio are known for their dynamic, psychedelic improvisation and carefully crafted beats. Eric Dudevoir, Sammy B and Tim Nickerson released their fully improvised “jam” album in early 2009 and since then have been getting more exposure in both the local and national scenes. Their tight, trance-inducing tunes are reminiscent of a DJ; you’ll have to keep reminding yourself that these guys are playing live instruments. For their live shows they bring the crowd through a journey, offering ups and very relieving downs as the beat drops and groove waves travel through the room, filling the venue with good vibes. Listen to the music player below and hear the depth and detail produced from live improvisational jams. The Cyborg Trio has shared the stage with: Jerry Garcia Band, EOTO, Conspirator, Big Gigantic, OTT, Papadosio, Digital Tape Machine, Orchard Lounge, Archnemesis, Higher Organix, The Indobox and more.
