The Manhattan Project Dropping “Bombs” Mid-Tour



Livetronica outfit The Manhattan Project has had quite the busy summer bringing their brand of sophisticated dance music to venues all over the country.  The band is mid-tour right now, and will be playing some venues and festivals around theMidwest and Northeast as they finish up their summer.

Their new EP Atomic Bomb Party Vol. 2 was just released in April for free download to great reviews and is embraced by DJ and live music fans alike. The Manhattan Project, which features Shawn Drogan on drums and electronics, and Charlie Lindner on keyboards and synths, has garnered attention from Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits (who has sat in with the band on several occasions) and opened for bands like Lotus, Conspirator, Future Rock, BioDiesel, Ozric Tentacles, and many more since their inception in 2010.

Drawing influences from house, dub, drum n’ bass, techno and lounge, The Manhattan Project brings a show that you will not want to miss.  Live visuals by NGB and epic light shows bring the concert experience to a new level, and have earned them the reputation of a must-see live band.  Check out their remaining tour dates below, and be sure to check them out.
