On Saturday, November 09, 2013, Papadosio makes their anticipated return to The Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, after an incredible show last year on December 30, 2012. It's no wonder they decided to return to The Trocadero to try to recapture the magic that occurred last December. Their return calls for a high energy performance with a rowdy crowd, riding high off of the waves of their last stop in Philadelphia, this year's April 20, 2013 show at The Blockley.
Papadosio will be joined for this event by Denver-based trio The Malah and Anthony Thogmartin's solo project, EarthCry, which has been opening up almost every show on this fall tour. The Malah have been making waves on the transformational festival circuit in the past several years, as well as moving crowds during their own events. The Philadelphia show finds The Malah in their third appearance of a several show run with Papadosio, which will also see them travel to Lexington, Kentucky and then all the way down to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, before moving forward on their own to bring their unique brand of instrumental dance music to Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival in Florida mid-November. Using a variety of electronic sounds and samples, while maintaining sexy, jazzy, organic dance beats in the style of old school Sound Tribe Sector 9, The Malah is going to be a fantastic way to open the evening on Saturday. After The Malah concludes, EarthCry will take the stage. Formed almost two years ago, Anthony Thogmartin, guitarist for Papadosio, has used the EarthCry pseudonym to create healing music with a tribal flair. Utilizing the ancient Solfeggio frequencies and tuning forks to create tracks based around a specific frequency, EarthCry is unlike any production you've ever heard. Prepare to get weird and move your body in ways you didn't think possible.
After the openers conclude, the main attraction will take the stage. Formed in Athens, Ohio and now calling Asheville, North Carolina home, Papadosio has been ravaging ears and minds all over the country with their massive form of psychedelic jamming. Taking cues from a large variety of influences, Papadosio is a pretty indescribable entity, as the usual “jamtronica” label is inappropriate. The band uses that idea only as a jumping off point to take listeners and viewers on a musical journey of the most brain-warping variety while preaching a message of love and unity for the world and each other. Papadosio always brings the heat—that is not really up for debate. After seeing them this past weekend at Toad's Place in New Haven, Connecticut, though, it is quite apparent that these guys have stepped things up a couple of notches. With mind-blowing visuals projected across three LED panels and a huge and emotional performance, it's safe to say that anyone who doesn't attend Saturday's show at The Trocadero Theatre is missing out on one of the premiere concert experiences of this fall.
