We just announced our lineup, and we're excited to start introducing you to the amazing bands we'll have at this year's ECOCHELLA! First in our hearts (and more importantly in our schedule) is RoboPope, a student band at UCLA whose talent is matched only by the indelible wit of its members, Dominic Delzompo and Donnie Laudicina. With that in mind, it seemed only fitting that they introduce themselves...
"RoboPope is a thirty dollar McDonald’s receipt from 11:30 pm on a Tuesday and an angry hive of bees covered in paint and the intersection of dreamscape and hardwood floors and the straw of the Capri Sun given to the middle school lacrosse player that grew up to be presidential candidate John Kerry. RoboPope is Dom and Donnie. RoboPope is releasing an EP in the very near future. RoboPope is on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter at @robopopemusic."

RoboPope is a two-piece band that plays dreamy guitar music. Their songs are about everyday, relatable subjects like daddy issues, Lord of the Rings, and bootleg alcohol. The stage is their stable. Come see them open our festival in the chillest of ways on May 1 at 4 pm.
For a sneak peek at their mesmerizing soundscape, come out to their show at The Wilde Thistle next Saturday, April 11 at 8 pm.
