The Manhattan Project @ Nietzsche’s

The Manhattan Project

Saturday, March 30

syt3The North East has become known for live electronic acts like the Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Umphrey’s McGee, and Conspirator. The sounds of these groove oriented, electro-tinged jam bands should be familiar to Buffalo music fans. The latest to join the pack are a live electronic duo called the Manhattan Project. Hailing from Rochester, the duo, made up of keyboardist Charlie Lindner and drummer Shawn Drogan, are carving out a name for themselves. Formed in 2010, the band has become a staple at Camp Bisco and across live stages all over the East Coast. They are currently preparing to release their next EP titled Atomic Bomb Party Vol. III next month and it’s sure to be full of the high energy, house and dub influenced sounds that have graced their previous Atomic Bomb releases. Their EP release show is April 20th at the Water Street Music Hall, but you can catch new live material from The Manhattan Project when they perform live at Nietzsche’s this Saturday (March 30) with support from Buffalo electronic trance-groove band Space Junk.
