Newly formed power synthwave group Doom Flamingo gave jam fans some big news to start off their week. Fresh off their recent performance in Atlanta on December 28th, the rock band announced a run of more shows scheduled for this spring, in addition to news that they’re working on finalizing their own India Pale Ale beer to be debuted locally in the upcoming months.
For those who are late to the Doom Flamingo party, the rock band is comprised of Umphrey’s McGee bassist Ryan Stasik, along with keyboardist Ross Bogan, Terraphonics‘ guitarist Thomas Kenney, drummer Stu White, sax player Mike Quinn, and lead singer Kanika Moore. Select cities across the country will get their live introduction to the relatively new retro rock/jam outfit this spring, as the band is scheduled to play the Mercy Lounge in Nashville, TN on March 29th; a hometown show at the Charleston Pour House on April 27th; the French Broad River Festival in Hot Springs, NC on May 4th; and Cervantes’ Other Side in Denver, CO on June 20th.
The upcoming performances will follow the band’s previously announced Umphrey’s afterparty shows at The Broadberry in Richmond, Virginia this Friday, January 11th, and Brooklyn Bowl in New York City on February 16th.

The band’s April 27th show in Charleston is largely in celebration of their soon-to-be-released single malt, single hop India Pale Ale in partnership with Fatty’s Beer Works. The single malt IPA will be brewed with Golden Promise malt, Strata Hops, and industrial hemp, according to the statement shared via a press release. There’s also a Doom Flamingo graphic novel in the works according to the same announcement, so fans should be on the lookout for updates on the book coming in the near future if you’re into that kind of thing.
Fans can head to Doom Flamingo’s Spotify page to listen up on some of their recently shared original singles. Tickets for their newly announced spring concerts will go on sale starting this January 11th, and can be found at the band’s website.
