About Dopapod:

Dopapod access a heightened level of cosmic harmony in their music. The quartet—Eli
Winderman [keys, vocals], Rob Compa [guitar, vocals], Chuck Jones [bass], and Neal “Fro”
Evans [drums]—present albums as experiences meant to be shared out of your speakers and
on stage. After generating millions of streams, packing shows coast-to-coast, and earning
acclaim from Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Glide Magazine, and more, the group architect an
immersive and expansive vision on their self-titled seventh full-length offering, Dopapod.
The group’s hypnotic hybrid of funk, rock, jazz, bluegrass, and electronica bloomed brilliantly on
2009’s Radar, and it continued to blossom on the likes of Never Odd Or Even [2014] and
Megagem [2017]. Along the way, fan favorites such as “Present Ghosts” reeled in 2.4 million
Spotify streams and counting. 2019’s Emit Time arrived to acclaim from Guitar World, Relix,
Glide, Jambase, and more. Simultaneously, they sold out headline gigs and graced the bills of
Electric Forest, Summer Camp, High Sierra, and Bonaroo where Rolling Stone named them
among the festival’s “best kept secrets.” After a marathon near-decade run, they enjoyed an
almost year-long hiatus to realign and reenergize before reuniting with a new fire during 2019
and partaking in something of a “soft return.”
After a brief hiatus to regroup and recharge their creative efforts, Dopapod assembled what
would become their next album, the self-titled Dopapod, and looked at the loose threads of their
catalog to conceptually tie their journey together. They chose to self-title their seventh offering
as a totem to the fact they’ve realized their full potential in terms of music and vision. Tackling
time travel, balance and symmetry, binary pairs and more, Dopapod’s palindromic existence
continues to conjure alchemy nearly fifteen years into their journey.

About Wolf Mask:

Ross Bogan of Doom Flamingo unmasked his newest project Wolf Mask with the release of “LIQUIDCRYSTALDISPLAY” in 2022. Bogan uses past prose, a wolf mask, and his horror interests to depict a character he admits has a lot of his own psyche. This is the first release in preparation for their debut performance October 1st, as well as the future full album. “It’s kind of an attempt at finishing out demos I wrote for other projects that snowballed into a solo project/live band.” In regards to “Liquid Crystal Display,” “The lyrics are edited from a stream of consciousness I wrote in 2020. I actually didn’t even have the mask yet.” “As far as the name goes I’ve always liked writing from theme and character perspectives. It’s like clockwork though how the subconscious creeps up and I end up learning something about myself in the process. There’s a Stephen King quote I’ve always loved, “Fiction is the truth inside the lie.” In some ways it’s a character but it’s also a whole lot of me. At the end of the day, It’s a collection of songs I like to write from me and my wolf mask and a great excuse to mess with synthesizers and guitar pedals.”

Joining Bogan in the live band are Sean Bing (Drums / Doom Flamingo), Thomas Kenney (Guitar / Doom Flamingo) , and Aaron Utterback (Bass / Human Resources).
