ROCKING THEIR WAY ONTO YOUR STEREO, THE DANCE FLOOR AND YOUR HEARTS:
CONSPIRATOR (FEATURING MEMBERS OF THE DISCO BISCUITS) CONTINUE TO SUPPORT RECENT ALBUM RELEASE OF UNLOCKED: LIVE FROM THE GEORGIA THEATER WITH CLUB AND FESTIVAL TOUR

Conspirator features Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits keyboardist and bass player) as an outlet to channel their electronic mad scientist personae. Formed in 2004, Conspirator has worked with a variety of talented musicians, with Magner and Brownstein being the founders and mainstays. With the recent permanent addition of virtuoso guitarist Chris Michetti, and with the tremendously talented KJ Sawka (Pendulum) as the band’s touring drummer, Conspirator has reached another level in its constantly evolving dance/rock fusion.

Unlocked – Live from the Georgia Theatre (released April 10, 2012 on SCI Fidelity Records) captures the spirit of these true genre blenders. Recorded 10.06.2011 at the historic Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA and featuring Mike Greenfield from Lotus on drums, Unlocked is a collection of electronic rock bliss – delving, twisting and diving effortlessly between house, dub-step, drum and bass, and electro.

Recent press accolades for the new album include Guitar Player (“Pulsating grooves and synth bleeps … Nile Rodgers-approved funk, technically demanding fuzz melodies, blues-rock wailing, and full-on speed-picked shred,”) Jambands.com (“(Unlocked) demands to be played from start to finish; ride this trip until there’s nothing left to ride,” and the Aquarian Weekly (“The way they seamlessly mesh together great rock and electric sounds makes me want to hear more from these guys.”).

2011 was a seminal year for the group with groundbreaking performances at the Ultra Music Festival, Nocturnal Festival, Electric Forest Festival and Camp Bisco 10 as well as sold out shows at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC, Pearl Street in Northampton, MA, the Fox Theater in Boulder and the Bluebird Theatre in Denver. As a full band, the music is hitting new highs and killing in the live show. With the addition of an arsenal of new material, more crowds across the nation have begun to embrace this remarkable outfit.

Yes, it is the Year of the Dragon but barring the Mayan prediction coming true for 2012, this should be Conspirator’s year as well. more >>>
Higher Learning | 8:00 PM
Tearing through space and time in a rickety Moog-powered spaceship, Higher Learning is well on their way towards the outer reaches of Jupiter. Armed only with the spirit of exploration and an oversized Tupperware container full of hash, the four psychonauts from the streets of Atlanta, GA gaze through the haze of the cockpit out into the little-known expanse of our fine universe. Their mission, daunting as it may be, is simple at its core: to distill the cosmos into sound. Their natural abilities to endure long periods of isolation and odd sleep schedules have enabled them to strive towards this goal with unbridled tenacity. From their collectively-twisted mind comes a sonic stew composed of liberal portions of analogue and digital frequencies - grounded for your pleasure by the familiar sounds of a live four-piece band. HL cordially invites you to join them on their interstellar adventures forward into the great wide yonder. Planets will turn, stars will die, and new stars will be born. Only one thing is for sure - you will want to hear it all.

Modern Measure | 8:00 PM
Modern Measure is a hybrid electronica project like no other. Kyle Holly (Drums/Production) has been surrounded by music and live performance his entire life. Growing up in an enriched musical environment, he learned about the nature of music, drumming, and creating from a very early age. Bobby McAlister (Production/Keys) is no different. The musical approach taken by McAlister is quite unique. Starting as a guitar player, his interests slowly became engulfed with synthesizers and music production. The two have been performing together in various projects for six years. Now, they have joined forces again to create something unique and fresh, drawing inspiration from their own experiences. The Modern Measure sound combines elements of hip hop, downtempo, drum and bass, glitch hop and all types of bass music. Using a combination of live instruments and hardware controllers, the music is remixed and rearranged on the fly for a true live experience. MM brings a super fresh mix of sounds to get the crowd hyped, while creating a positive environment for listening and experiencing. It truly is all about the live music experience created within MM. more >>>
