CONSPIRATOR announces 2012 Winter Tour
Conspirator, the full band featuring Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits, guitarist Chris Michetti, and a cast of the live music scene’s best drummers, has announced the 3-week “BLIZZARD OF BEATS TOUR – WINTER 2012” for February 2012 performances throughout Colorado and the Midwest. Tickets for all shows are available from individual venue ticketing. Please check with each venue for details.
The Blizzard of Beats Tour features top artists from the growing electronic music scene. After kicking off Winter 2012 on February 2 in Breckenridge, the band will spend a total of 10 days in Colorado – giving fans a great excuse to hit the slopes by bringing a string of live shows to the mountains before wrapping up their stint in The Centennial State with back to back shows in Boulder and Denver.
Conspirator will be joined by #1 Beatport Glitch Hop artist, Ben Samples for all six Colorado shows, while Dr. Fameus (Allen Aucoin of the Disco Biscuits) joins the Tour for the last three Colorado shows in Ft. Collins, Boulder, and Denver. From there, the Doctor continues to the Midwest, playing Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Kalamazoo. Ben Silver of Orchard Lounge will join the Milwaukee and Minneapolis shows, along with the newest member of our team, Alpha Data, whose first ever EP, Nefertiti, will be released November 29th on Grunt Worthy.
Conspirator pulls into Chicago for a Friday night blowout on February 17th at the Congress Theater with Emancipator and Lotus! The February tour will then meet you at the Pageant in St. Louis for one more show with Lotus before wrapping things up in Kalamazoo, which proved to be another favorite stop for Conspirator in the past year.

2011 has been a seminal year for Conspirator. Formed in 2004 by Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits' keyboardist and bass player) along with New York producer DJ Omen, Conspirator has taken on many forms through the years. With the recent addition of virtuoso guitarist Chris Michetti and stalwart drummers Darren Shearer (the New Deal) and Mike Greenfield (Lotus), Conspirator has reached a new level.
As a full band, the music is hitting new highs, and with the addition of an arsenal of new material, crowds across the nation have begun to catch on. Conspirator can no longer be considered merely a side-project, but must be looked at entirely as its own entity.
Coming off of break-out performances at Ultra Music Festival, Nocturnal Festival, Electric Forest, and Camp Bisco, Conspirator has begun to catch the eye of electronic music aficionados everywhere. Refusing to be pigeon-holed into one genre, they explore the many realms of electronic music, effortlessly slipping between house, dub-step, drum and bass, and electro.
