What do GIRL TALK, Colour Revolt, Ghastly City Sleep, and British Sea Power have in common? Man Plus Building has opened for all of them, illustrating that their brand of well-conceived, well-performed instrumental indie rock can transcend specific genres and simply matter as captivating music.

Biography

2008 proved to be a whirlwind year for Man Plus Building. The instrumental quartet from Baton Rouge, Louisiana formed in January and within a few months had written a handful of songs and played a couple house shows and club dates around town. Quickly becoming "the band to see" in Baton Rouge, Man Plus Building's captivating soundtrack and unique visual presentation began drawing larger and larger crowds. In April, their handful of songs were put to tape and released as their debut album entitled "...Because My Name Is Lion." By the end of the year, the band had played over 30 shows, including dates with Colour Revolt, British Sea Power, David Dondero, Ghastly City Sleep, and GIRL TALK.

The New Year will, appropriately, bring a new record and new tour dates. More to come...
