This Brooklyn quartet bends genre boundaries as easily as a toddler with ESP bends cutlery. Like many bands in the "jam" scene, Dopapod's incessant touring schedule has honed the group's sound as well as expanded its fan base. The band's flurried intensity, deep, concentrated grooves, and superior technical musicianship has wowed audiences at a number of big festivals, including Bonnaroo, StrangeCreek, and Camp Bisco. The band incorporates a whole spectrum of sound, from disco and jazz to funk and progressive rock, highlighted by searing guitars and an intoxicating interplay of bass and synthesizer. The most recent releases, "I Saw Live Dopapod Evil Was I" and "Drawn Onward," put forth the entire package.
Dopapod performs Wednesday, November 28, at 9 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $10. 325-5600, waterstreetmusic.com.
