Concert preview: Dope Body

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Dope Body plays boiling hot noise with large chunks of rock songs and melody floating in it. Powerful, at first loud and abrasive, songs quickly simmer down to reveal substantial and satisfyingly memorable choruses and other "traditionally" pleasing elements. Dope Body blends and smooths (or not) hundreds of disparate sounds and tones to make up its compositions. Some are pretty, some are ugly, but none are obnoxious or abrasive or pointless.
