Hey folks,

Boone Saloon will be abuzz again this week with two stellar shows. On Thursday, March 28, we'll welcome the return of heady Boston progressive funk rockers Dopapod. On Saturday, March 30, Atlanta indie institution Gringo Star will again bring their rollicking, Kinks-heavy sound back to the High Country. Local trio Slopes will open the show. Read on...

 

Thursday, March 28

Dopapod

10 p.m., $5

 

About Dopapod:

"Dopapod is not so much a jam band as they are a band that improvises. They are an electronic band without computers. They are a metal band with groove and soul.  They are a funk band that’s not afraid to get intricate. In the past three years, Dopapod has been tirelessly planting its seed in ears throughout the entire East Coast and into the Midwest with their infectious and sensory live performances.  Covering all this ground has seen the young, yet seasoned group make appearances at numerous festivals including Camp Bisco, Mountain Jam, Gathering Of the Vibes, Bonnaroo, Burning Man, Catskill Chill, Bear Creek, The Big Up, Rootwire, and more."

 

Watch Dopapod bring the funk live on their song "Trapper Keeper" HERE!

 

Saturday, March 30

Gringo Star w/ Slopes

10 p.m., $5

 

About Gringo Star:

" Their songwriting is still modeled on the three vocal, pop melodies cruising in a 1965 Rambler. And they still swap guitars, basses and keyboards between every song, a result of either undiagnosed ADD or instrumental cockiness.

"The four-piece from Atlanta raced into their set like it was their last gig on earth and it was happening at Madison Square Garden. They played dirty pop with three-part harmonies, buttressed by a restless, galloping rock and roll. And they were playing it all with an unflagging desperation that had captivated the attention of the only four people there to share the moment (the clerk was still disinterested). When they finished their set, and I have no doubt that they played every last lick on their set list, the band was sweaty. Gringo Star got sweaty for less than half a dozen people. I have told and retold that story ever since as a yardstick for musical integrity." -Dick Sullivan, Dallas Magazine
