first_imgJam scene favorites Dopapod have announced a two-night New Years Run at The Madison Theater in Covington, KY on December 30th and 31st. Aqueous will open the show on Friday night, the first night of the run, while Consider the Source will serve as support on New Year’s Eve. The 2016-2017 run marks the first time that Dopapod will be ringing in the new year outside the Northeast. Covington, being just over the river from Cincinnati, is centrally located at the corner of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.Keyboardist/vocalist Eli Winderman elaborates, “The Ohio, Indy, Kentucky area has long held a special place in our hearts. We wanted to switch things up this year to keep the celebratory spirit fresh. The last three years in Worcester, MA have all been purely magical. We figure to preserve that, let’s take it to another region that has also always embraced and made us feel at home.” For tickets and more information, head here.In the last two months, the quartet made festival appearances at both Werk Out and Resonance Music Festivals.
