What up everybody.
I’m kickin it in Athens, Ohio right now at the house of one of my favorite new bands of the past couple years – Papadosio. It’s an exciting and crazy time around here with a lot of changes, but the guys have just released their second album Observations which i think the shredsomething crowd will appreciate.
The band held a release party at the Newport Music Hall on friday night with another Ohio band called The Werks. This was Dosio’s first time headlining the Newport and before the show I recall hearing the guys saying that 400-600 in attendance was about what they were expecting. All in all that night 800 showed up for what was one of the most spectacular and heartfelt display of music by such young musicians.
The Werks is going to be the perfect afterparty to next years Panic/Phish run – keeping it so close to home yet diving into the depths of space whenever need be. The guitarist/vocalist – the big man in the front is named Hauser and isn’t afraid of belting out tracks such as “Psycho Killer” if the situation calls for it.
Similarly, Dosio is like the Railroad Earth of psychedelic/dance/electronic/progressive. Anthony Thogmartin – guitar/vocals/programming – is one of the more thoughtful and talented songwriters – reminding me of Todd Sheaffer’s poetics, but with an entirely different set of sonics to back it. If you take a listen, the lyrics to the track “All I Knew” will catch your ear.
All in all, I’m super excited for these guys. They work, love, and play hard. Like the mindblowing foliage here, they take a lot from a little and create some of the richest audible colors and textures on the scene right now.
Where I come in is a little unclear – but I decided to build them a Ning known as the Rootwire. It’s getting pretty good, member list is only going to keep growing. I know a lot of people out there appreciate shredsomething, but don’t want to get involved in Facebook. If you’re into small community of talented individuals and minds, come check this shit out.
Similarly, I set up this Bandcamp for the dudes so we can get this new album as far as the mycelial 2.0 will reach :0 Hiyooooo!!!!!

Greetings er’ebody….Lots been happening out here on the West Coast, so much one could say they can’t help but notice. I’ve got a couple things to shred.
First, I’ve created a new website to go in conjunction with my friends over at Papadosio’s new album coming out in 2 weeks called Observations. My relationship with these guys has been nothing less than stellar, as they were the defining factor of the first event I ever organized: Earth Night.
Since then, we’ve been playing with a lot of ideas to connect people better, offer more sonic as well as Gaian downloads, and get the internet at the forefront of the magreenery revolution and I’ve come up with Rootwire.Ning.Com which is a Ning-based network, a Sonic Bloom of social Networks as opposed to the bonarroo like Facebook shred. I wanna invite everyone to join and add all the shit they would ever want and use it as much as possible. I think for smaller-scale bands this is going to be fun as well and it will be directly linked from Papadosio’s site as a replacement to their current forum.
If anyone still needs a dose, I uploaded their debut album Magreenery here:
Interestingly, Dosio will be making their way to Colorado and I hope we can gather some gnarly support for these guys…Here are the current dates with an impending Hodi’s and Yeti’s.

Lastly….for a preview of the sound that won’t be missed on the new CD, I made this little vid a couple weeks back kickin it in Phil’s Arcata palace 🙂 Enjoy.

Hey this week a band from Athens, Ohio called Papadosio is rolling through Colorado. One of the members is the brother of a really good friend of mine and nasty musician out here in New York. They are definently on the upswing, and like a lot of bands, will undoubtedly benefit from the Colorado love.
You can check out their new EP here.
Within the past year they have been working with Madison house and playing in support of EOTO. Similarly, this coming fall they will opening for Lotus.
Sept 26th at Quixote’s and 27th at the B-side lounge in Boulder.
If anyone wants something more to listen to leave some comments, and I’ll get back to you soon. Thanks!
