Aura Music Events Presents Papadosio at Culture Room on December 7

Aaron Lingenfelter

"Livetronica" is the worst name for a musical subgenre since "emo" or "rock 'n' roll." This ridiculous term is meant to denote psychedelic jam-band hippie rock that has been augmented with the technorganic delights of the future. That is, synthesizers, computers, and combinations thereof. Lucky for flagship livetronickers Papadosio, their airtight chops and prog-intricate compositions very quickly steal the spotlight from crappy blog jargon. Papadosio bassist Rob McConnell recently told New Times: "You see a lot of things hyped as 'live electronica,' and then it's a DJ. We have four-part vocal harmonies. Sampling. Crazy loud effects. 'Livetronica' takes what we do and pigeon-holes us. I tell people we're a new psychedelic rock band." They'll be bringing all of that sound out to the Culture Room thanks to Aura Music Events this Friday, and you can decide for yourself what to call it.
