Papadosio will radiate with new sound at Track 29
Orchestral. Electronic. Organic. Acoustic. Psychedelic. Celestial. The native Ohioan band Papadosio is all of these things. The quintet has been likened to progressive rock icons such as Jethro Tull, Yes, and Genesis. Each of their songs uses a unique blend of acoustic and electric guitar, synthesizers, and drums.
Their first album, Observations, dropped in 2009 and they have been rapidly gaining attention ever since. In 2012, they released an ambitious 20 track album called To End the Illusion of Separation, or T.E.T.I.O.S. Their newest album, Extras in a Movie was released last year and has received substantial praise for its complex composition and prominent vocals.
For the last six years they have done over 150 shows a year. “Work hard, play hard” is an understatement for these five. The band is composed of singer-songwriter Anthony Thogmartin, drummer Mike Healy, bassist Rob McConnell, and brothers Billy and Sam Brouse who control the unique combination of keyboard and synth. Each brings a different nuance to their subtle and bravely kaleidoscopic sound.
Let Thogmartin’s words be your invitation to the night: “Our intention is to give people music that can be themes in their lives so they can connect [to the music]. To provide them with a place to hang out so they don’t feel weird in what they are thinking—to give their brains and their hearts a home.”
Whether you’ve been a fan from the start, or you’ve only heard a few songs, this is a performance you’ll want to experience. Next Wednesday night they will be taking the stage at Track 29. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door.
