Conspirator, the duo of Disco Biscuits’ staples Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner, is going on a national tour with a “full band.” The quotation marks are needed because Conspirator never has a permanent lineup. Last December, the group made a stop in Athens, GA and this time they are bring the show to Atlanta on March 31.
While Brownstein and Magner have occasionally invited other musicians to their live shows, the “new Conspirator” has proven to be a new, “full band” sound emerging not only from the group’s mentality, but by featuring a solidified, returning, 4-piece lineup.
During Conspirator’s tour in December the duo used a rotating cast of drummers. For this tour, Conspirator welcomes back Chris Michetti of RAQ and Mike Greenfield of Lotus. The idea of a national tour might be new, but this side project is anything but novice.
Conspirator formed in 2005 and has been popular with fans of the electronic jam genre. Their signature high energy, electronic-based sets and their album, The Key, all laid the groundwork for 2011’s tour.
“The energy coming off of the December Conspirator shows with Michetti was very exciting for Aron and I, and the fans have responded really well,” said Brownstein in the band’s press release. “We knew right away we had to take this across the country. There are really exciting places a full band, this full band, can take the classic Conspirator sound. It’s a whole new show each night.”
