Nearly a year after America began its fight with the coronavirus pandemic, The Werk Out Music & Arts Festival is bouncing back stronger than ever. By adapting to the socially distanced era for events, The Werk Out will continue to rock with two nights of music at the spacious Legend Valley Music Venue & Campground in Thornville, Ohio July 23 and 24.
TAUK is pleased to announce support for Round 1 of their upcoming Squad tour that runs from January 30th to February 22nd. Newly announced special guests include multiple dates with RCA, a new group featuring Rob Compa of Dopapod, and Chris DeAngelis and Adrian Tramontano of Kung Fu, Conscious Pilot, and Evanoff. Eminence Ensemble, Guerilla Toss, and Aaron Kamm and The One Drops and several others join the band for one-off support dates.
The Werk Out Festival has announced its daily lineup schedule for August 1st-August 3rd, 2019. In its 10th year founded and curated by The Werks, this year presents the most robust lineup yet with Big Gigantic, STS9, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Steel Pulse, The Floozies, Twiddle, Matisyahu, and more rounding out the genre-spanning lineup handpicked by the festival’s namesake band. In addition, the festival has announced single-day tickets available for the first time in their history.
Ever since Dopapod announced their return from hiatus marked by a Capitol Theatre play on April 27th, 2019, fans have been wondering if new music was on the horizon. Earlier this week that suspicion was confirmed with the band's release of "Numbers Need Humans," the first single from their upcoming record, Emit Time, due out May 24th, 2019.
In anticipation of their long-awaited reunion show a The Capitol Theatre on April 27th, Dopapod will start to systematically release their catalog of live recordings on Nugs.net. As of today, the first 5 shows have been released and are currently available to stream: http://bit.ly/DopapodNugsNet.
It has been a while since we last heard from Dopapod, but speculation of the band's future can end today. "We’re all incredibly excited to bring the band back together to usher in the next chapter of Dopapod," keyboardist Eli Winderman shares. "We’ve been blown away by the amount of speculation on our return and just the overall love and support surrounding the band."
The fourth annual Halloween Horror Camp presented by Disc Jam will be held on Saturday, October 27th in Western Massachusetts at an undisclosed summer camp nestled in the woods of Western Massachusetts. The 2018 Horror Camp lineup includes Octave Cat, (featuring members of Lotus and Dopapod), West End Blend, Space Bacon, William Thompson Funk Experiment, The New Motif, Escaper, Electro Politics, Dewpoint, Resin Ed, Lee Ross, Uncle Bob and Friends BASSBQ, and an unannounced headliner.
