Progressive electronic rock band Papadosio will play Friday and Saturday nights at Animas City Theatre.
The band, which began about 13 years ago in Athens, Ohio, and which now calls Asheville, North Carolina, home, includes Mike Healy, Rob McConnell, Anthony Thogmartin and brothers Billy Brouse and Sam Brouse, are on tour to promote their latest album, “Content Coma,” their fifth studio album.
The band’s sound is hard to pin down to any particular genre, “kind of on purpose, but that’s also how it happens,” said Billy Brouse, the band’s keyboardist.
Papdosio is known for its ability to improvise, even in the middle of a show, something we’ll probably see this weekend, Brouse said.
“We’ve never played the same set twice. We’re doing two nights in Durango, so both nights will be different musically,” he said. “There’s a good amount of times we don’t know what’s going to happen; we can sometimes talk about it beforehand, but then just kind of in the moment, it will all of a sudden kind of turn into a straight dance party, or it could turn into some jazzy, swanky stuff, or really hard. You never know.”
He said the ability to change course during a show could be a connection between the band that comes from playing together so long.
“I know what everyone’s gonna order when we go out to dinner, no questions asked. I could order for all of them,” he said. “It’s the same kind of thing onstage.”
