FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Independent concert promoter Manic Productions has announced that the company will be rebranding as ‘Manic Presents.’ This announcement comes at the beginning of their 15th year of promoting live events in Connecticut, culminating in a special concert with post-rock giants Explosions in the Sky at College Street Music Hall in New Haven on Thursday, April 20th.
Manic was formed in 2002 by Mark Nussbaum, who has since worked to bring the finest underground music talent to Connecticut, and bring the best local and regional acts into a brighter spotlight. Manic has shown national touring artists that Connecticut is a legitimate and important tour stop by promoting well-organized, and well-attended shows. In 2015, Manic joined forces with fellow CT indie promoter Premier Concerts. Mark Nussbaum now acts as Premier Concerts’ Senior Talent Buyer, while continuing to promote events throughout Connecticut under the Manic moniker. Manic books events throughout the state with a focus on College Street Music Hall (New Haven), The Ballroom at The Outer Space (Hamden), Cafe Nine (New Haven), and a free weekly music series at New Haven pizzeria and microbrewery BAR.
