Papadosio Closes First Leg Of Spring Tour With Jam-Heavy Ten-Song Show In Madison [Photos/Setlist]

first_imgLoad remaining images With the final night of their spring tour making a stop in Madison, Wisconsin, Papadosio left it all on the table for the fans that trekked through the crazy “spring” snowstorm for this Sunday night heater. With great support from locals Red Rose, as well as Maine electronica adventurers Jaw Gems, it was a great night that saw Papadosio end their spring tour on a high note.The set begin with the ambient “…And This Is What He Thought,” the second half to a song that would make its way into the encore slot later. It was an interesting way to open up the show. “Monochrome” followed, and that segued into a raging “Advocate of Change.” The first song of the night from their newest release followed in “Threes.” This version was stretched out to the maximum, containing some great improvisation before they brought it back to the familiar triplets from which the song must be named.Other newer songs popped up later in the set like “Vactrollio” and “Euclidean Lights.” An absolute monster of “Snorkle” ended the set. This song always takes fans on a musical journey, and last night’s version was no different. It was easy to get lost in the improvisation, in a great way. However, all direction was restored when the first notes of the synthesizer were heard to signal the impending ending of the song. So while one Brouse brother laid down the synth part, the other Brouse played an incredibly harmonious piano part that I’ve never heard in any version of “Snorkle.” It sounded majestic – and if you closed your eyes during it, you may have even imagined there was a grand piano on the stage.The encore included “The Bionic Man Meets His Past,” the beginning half to the opening tune of the set. Finally, they closed it out with a “Paradigm Shift” that was teeming with energy. The power chords at the end of the song rocked by guitarist Anthony Thogmartin couldn’t have sound any better and couldn’t have been any more fitting to cap off the tour. The band thanked all the fans that made it out. Special shout out to the bride-to-be who had her bachelorette party at a Papadosio show on a Sunday night.You can check out the setlist and a full gallery of photos from the night below, courtesy of Daniel Ojeda.Setlist: Papadosio | Majestic Theatre | Madison, WI | 3/12/2017Set One: And This Is What He Thought, Monochrome > Advocate Of Change, Threes XL, Out Of Hiding > Vactrollio, Euclidean Lights, Snorkle, Bionic ManEncore: Paradigm Shiftlast_img read more
