Boston-based jam/progressive rock band Dopapod will be heading back to Montana in 2023! They’ll perform at The ELM in Bozeman on March 7th and The Top Hat in Missoula on March 8th. Both concerts will feature opening sets from live electronica power trio, Yak Attack.
Since forming in 2008, Dopapod has released seven studio albums. Their latest, self-titled album came out in 2022. Pop Matters said the album “is another fabulous creation solidifying Dopapod’s complex yet calming and colorful stylistic approach. It’s an energizing, imaginative, and stylish LP.” Fun fact: all of Dopapod’s studio album titles are palindromes!
Dopapod has played at many prominent music festivals including Electric Forest, Summer Camp, High Sierra, and Bonnaroo. In 2015, Dopapod was cited by Rolling Stone as Bonnaroo’s “Best-Kept Secret” comparing them to Phish, Disco Biscuits and Frank Zappa. Dopapod’s live shows feature plenty of improvisation and incorporate many genres like funk, heavy metal, jazz fusion, progressive rock, and country.

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  and Megagem . 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.
