Regulars at Highberry Music Festival and George’s Majestic Lounge, progressive rock/dance quartet Dopapod returns to George’s for one more show before taking a much-need hiatus from touring.

The life of a musician on the road is grueling. Exceptionally few groups have the funds or the fortune to travel in their own tour bus, so most instead pack all their members, instruments and equipment into a van night after night. Countless hours behind the wheel, little time spent anywhere but the venue at each stop, sometimes sleeping in a bed, sometimes on the couch or the floor at a friend of a friend's -- it's a lifestyle that would weigh on anyone.
