Dopapod set to headline Disc Jam 2013, June 14-16 in Sturbridge MA. Music, Camping, and Disc Golf!
The Big Up just announced their lineup and new venue location at Hemlock Hollow in Claverack, NY. Selecting the defining sounds of summer once again, this year’s Phase One acts include Holy Fuck, Escort, the world premiere of Abakus live band, a DJ set from Chris Keating of Yeasayer, Jojo Mayer & Nerve, host band Higher Organix, Dopapod, Kung Fu, Brothers Past, Normal Instruments and Party Supplies. Additional artists and major headliners to be announced soon.
Taking the main stage Friday night will be the return of Schleigho, one of the northeast’s top touring bands of the late 1990′s / early 2000′s festival scene. Described best as “Music for the Minded”, Schleigho’s legendary jazz/fusion will no doubt educate a new generation of jam-prog fans, while reviving fond memories for the scene’s older generation. Also performing on Friday are current Upstate jam favorites Universe Shark, Timbre Coup, Project Weather Machine, Slip Madigan, Ocupanther, and more. Grateful Dead tribute Run For The Roses from Rochester will lead fans in the dark with a late night set under the stars (and projected light).
Saturday night headliners Dopapod bring their experimental jazz funk fusion to the main stage with a high powered array of sound and light. Currently on a 3 month national tour, the band recently completed a 3 night dancing room only run through Upstate NY with packed shows at Red Square, The Westcott, and Water Street. Read the recent UpstateLIVE interview for more on Dopapod. Other regional face-melters on Saturday include Twiddle, Aqueous, Lucid, Haewa, Formula 5, Stereopticon, and more. Consider The Source gets the late night slot to cap off an incredible weekend of live music.
