|Re:Evolution Media and Art Seen Alliance Present:
The information age has a sound. Revolutionary technology meets a revolutionary message in Papadosio. Melding progressive rock with psychedelia, folk with electronica, and dance music with jam, the quintet has amassed a dedicated following of thousands of likeminded individuals sewing the seeds of unity and spreading the sounds of exultation. Singer-songwriter Anthony Thogmartin’s visionary lyrics, eclectic production, and signature guitar work are anchored by the rock solid battery of drummer Mike Healy and bassist Rob McConnell. The quintet is rounded out by brothers Billy and Sam Brouse, whose virtuosic two-headed keyboard, synth, and programming attack give the band its unmistakable complexity and intensity.
Born in the burgeoning, artistic city of Athens, OH, the quintet now calls another creative community, Asheville, NC its home. Little time is spent nestled up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, though, as Papadosio spends much of the year on the road, crisscrossing the United States ceaselessly. In addition to headlining shows in every region of the country, their high-energy, technologically perplexing, and utterly engaging stage show has made the five-piece a staple on the festival circuit, with scene-stealing sets at Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Bear Creek, and their own annual event, Rootwire, an inspirational confluence of music, art, science, and spirituality. With more than 100 performances a year, the band remains prolific by passing the endless miles between cities composing new material.
The culmination of all that writing on the road is TETIOS. The follow-up to 2009’s critically acclaimed Observations finally arrived in the fall of 2012. To End the Illusion of Separation is a sprawling double album, signaling not only an evolution of the band’s sound, but a paradigm shift on a far greater scale. The album is a call for people of all stripes to reject artificial barriers of wealth, class, and creed and come together under the flag of humanity. Themes of conservation, tolerance, and mind-expansion delicately weave their way around tribal rhythms, psychedelic excursions, and soaring melodies. The fusion of the earthly, the organic, with technological innovations and progressive sonic structure plants Papadosio’s roots firmly in the past and present with an eye turned towards the horizon.
A LIVE ONE
The A Live One project was started in December 2010 by guitarist Josh Pearson and drummer Dan McGreevy of the original jam band Moving Matter. By 2011, the band was completed with the smooth sounds of Wesley Haynes of the J. Wesley Haynes Trio, and the funky bass stylings of Michael Boyd, founder of Sense & Color School of Music.
Between the worlds of songwriting tradition and festival culture, Michael makes music for which new words must be invented – pushing the boundaries of acoustic fingerstyle technique until guitar, effects, and audience become a greater instrument ecstatically playing itself.
Shifting from fretboard-tapping etudes to live looping groovescapes to cathartic anthems and ballads, Michael's sets draw listeners through a remix of musical idioms past, present, and future - intimate and ecstatic, focused and raw.
Music starts promptly at 10:30 PM
