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 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!

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
