Papadosio Announces Earth Night 2014: A Solstice Celebration
Two Day Event Returns to Columbus, Ohio Friday, December 19 at Park Street Saloon (Live PA Set) & Saturday, December 20 at LC Pavilion
Annual Celebration Features Art, Workshops & Live Music from Papadosio, Dopapod, Jimkata, EarthCry & Third Nature
Fresh off their thrilling performance supporting Lotus at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and two nights at Resonance Music & Arts Festival, Papadosio is excited to announce Earth Night 2014, returning to Columbus, Ohio for two nights:Friday, December 19 at Park Street Saloon featuring a more versatile/instrumental Live PA set and Saturday, December 20 at the L.C. Pavilion. Expanding the celebration, this annual event now coincides with a sister event being held at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado on December 13 in conjunction with Colorado’s Conscious Alliance.
For two nights and one day in Central Ohio, Earth Night celebrates the solstice in a ceremonious dance of music, art, and spirit. Inspired by the globally celebrated Earth Day, Earth Night roots itself in understanding the struggle for human and environmental rights while taking time to recognize the wisdom and practices of the ancient and indigenous that connected us to our planet in ways we hardly have the language for today.
Joining Papadosio at the L.C. Pavilion are close friends and allies, Dopapod and Jimkata. With no regard towards stylistic boundaries, the sound that emerges from Dopapod both live and in the studio is as varied and diverse as the many influences the band adapts from. Similarly, having been a mainstay of the Northeast jam circuit since 2006, Jimkata’s refined electro-rock sound is one of a band that has found its voice after years of experimentation. It’s more indie rock than jam, and more 90′s electronica than modern day EDM; yet the five-piece continues to traverse both terrains in style.
In addition, supporting the band for this very rare Live PA set at Park Street Saloon is Papadosio’s own Anthony Thogmartin, as his experimental side-project in sound and environmental philanthropy – EarthCry, in addition to Third Nature – the young trio now based out of Asheville, NC dedicated to exploring the sonic capabilities of our collective consciousness.

Limited advance two-day passes are $20, single-day tickets are $10. Regular two-day passes are $35, single-day tickets are $25 and at the door $30/$40. Complete Earth Night details are available at www.Papadosio.com.
About Earth Night:
On December 21, 2012, a monumental convergence of like-minded individuals from across nations and borders was born. Caught in the midst of prophecies from across cultures concerning the ‘end of time’, people across the Earth asked important questions about who we are as a people and where we are going. While some anticipated catastrophe, others attempted collective activation into a new paradigm that would shift the ways in which we spend on our time on this planet. Across the globe people gathered and ignited their will to continue their work here on Earth through music, art, activism and prayers.
Deep in the heartlands of America, a small group of musicians, artists and spiritual activists organized a gathering that included a variety of experience from live music to art, workshops, presentations and more. Inspired by the progressive spirit of the internationally-known and celebrated Earth Day (originally founded on the spring equinox in 1969) – this group named the event Earth Night – a testament to the power of global unification as well as the extended darkness offered by the winter solstice – the longest night of every year. Much like Earth Day, Earth Night rooted itself in the ever-growing environmental movement and the search for social justice (particularly among indigenous populations), while taking time to recognize some of the practices of old that connected us to our planet in ways we hardly have the language for today.
