In September of last year, Dopapod dropped some big news on fans with the announcement of a yearlong hiatus that will span the entirety of 2018. After seven years as road dogs, the idea of time off resonated with the four-piece progressive jam band—comprised of Eli Winderman (keys and vocals), Rob Compa (guitar and vocals), Chuck Jones (bass), and Neal ‘Fro’ Evans (drums)—feeling that the year would allow them to write new music, spend more quality time with friends and family, and dedicate time to developing side projects like Octave Cat and Oval Sandwich.EXCLUSIVE: Dopapod’s Rob Compa Talks Allman Brothers, Phish, And Future Dopapod PlansHowever, Dopapod coupled their hiatus announcement with even bigger news: the band would be releasing a brand-new album, MEGAGEM, marking the group’s fifth studio release, ahead of an extensive fall tour that spanned through to New Year’s Eve. Especially with the hiatus looming, fans of the group relished the eight-track record. Now, with 2018 upon us and the group’s break in full swing, Dopapod has released a brand-new animated music video for MEGAGEM‘s “Mucho”.The new music video for “Mucho”, which was produced by Avalanche Artists, is truly delightful and features whimsical animations of robots by Curtis Peel. Riffing off the feel-good and ebullient feel of the MEGAGEM track and its positive, life-affirming lyrics, the vibrant video follows a robot as he discovers that’s there’s more to his dull binary life after finding a flower growing on the street and bringing it home. In tune with the overall message of the number, as Eli Winderman explained about the track, “Mucho has quickly become one of our fan favorites. I was trying to write something that was fun and that contained a lesson I’ve learned over the past few years, which is if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.”Live For Live Music is proud to premiere the official music video for Dopapod’s “Mucho”. While the band is on hiatus, make sure to keep an eye on the band via their website or Bandcamp page, as there’s a good chance the group will continue to slowly release new content sporadically in the coming months. As Rob Compa explained to us about recording MEGAGEM in the fall, “We actually recorded enough music to warrant another album coming out sometime next year.” Stay tuned, and enjoy the world premiere of the video for Dopapod’s “Mucho” below!

Evra kicking a fan in the standsMarseille, France | AFP | Marseille said Friday they had opened an inquiry after defender Patrice Evra was sent off for launching a karate-style kick at a fan ahead of the Europa League match against Vitoria Guimaraes.Evra, 36, was handed a red-card Thursday when he launched the attack following a heated exchange with a group of Marseille fans on the touchline before the kickoff.Announcing the probe, Marseille said in a statement: “No matter what happens, a professional player must maintain self-control despite provocations and insults, no matter how unjustified they may be.”Evra was confronted by a group of supporters who had managed to get out of an area reserved for around 500 Marseille fans, who had travelled to Portugal for the game.Stewards at the ground quickly intervened to break up the trouble, with Evra, who was originally listed as a substitute, ordered to return to the dressing room by the referee.“Pat has experience, and he must not react, it’s obvious,” said Marseille coach Rudi Garcia whose side lost the game 1-0 and also had Boubacar Kamara sent off three minutes from time.“Patrice is a more than just an experienced player. You can’t respond, of course, to insults as bad as they are and as incredible as they might be because they come from one of our supporters.”“He must learn to keep his cool. That’s all I can say.”Garcia, however, blasted the fan who taunted the 81-times capped Evra at the compact Portuguese stadium. “He’s not a supporter of Marseille, because you can’t insult your own players, you have to be behind all of us.”The incident immediately brought back memories of another act of kung-fu kick madness by a French footballer.In January 1995, Eric Cantona, playing for Manchester United, launched a flying kick at a Crystal Palace supporter at Selhurst Park who had jeered him after he had been sent off.Cantona’s assault led to a nine-month ban handed down by the English Football Association.According to football statisticians Opta on Thursday: “Patrice Evra is the first player to be sent off before the start of a match in the history of the Europa League”.Europe’s second-tier tournament replaced the UEFA Cup for the 2009-2010 season.Evra, also a former Manchester United star, has received heavy criticism for his performances this season and lost his place in the team to on-loan Aston Villa left-back Jordan Amavi.

zoom Sydney-based mining company Glencore Coal Assets Australia (Glencore) has called for an arbitration to settle an access dispute with Port of Newcastle Operations (PNO) in relation to the shipping channel service at the port, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).Glencore requested that the ACCC arbitrate on the dispute, which relates to the level of access charges, and access terms, set by PNO for users of the shipping channel service at the port, which was declared under Part IIIA of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA) by the Australian Competition Tribunal in June 2016.The declared shipping channel service is “the provision of the right of access and use of the shipping channel (including berths next to walls as part of the channel) at the port, by virtue of which vessels may enter the port precinct and load and unload at relevant terminals located within the port precinct and then depart the port precinct.”“An ACCC arbitration would seek to identify a solution that balances the interests of both parties and promotes the economically efficient use and operation of these services,” Rod Sims, ACCC Chairman, said.Sims added that the ACCC’s role to arbitrate under Part IIIA only applies to declared services. As the declaration of the shipping channel service is currently the subject of an application for judicial review by the Full Federal Court, Sims said that “if that challenge is successful, the arbitration process will stop.”The ACCC must make a final determination within 180 days from the day a dispute notification is received.In May 2015, Glencore applied to have the shipping channel service at the Port of Newcastle declared. In January 2016, the Minister decided not to declare the service and Glencore applied for review of this decision by the Australian Competition Tribunal. The Tribunal declared the shipping channel service under Part IIIA of the CCA in June 2016.PNO subsequently applied for judicial review of the Tribunal’s decision by the Full Federal Court.
ATHENS, Greece – A panel of archaeologists has granted a British television crew access to an ancient site near Athens to film scenes for a TV adaptation of spy novelist John le Carre’s “The Little Drummer Girl” — reversing a decision last week following strong government criticism.The Central Archaeological Council on Tuesday granted access to the 2,500-year-old Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion on April 12 after the production company said it would limit the number of hours needed.The miniseries being produced for the BBC and the U.S.-based cable network AMC is due to be released next year.Greece’s government has launched a new campaign to attract film productions as part of a wider strategy to lure investors back after eight years of a crippling financial crisis.
