Conspirator is the edgy electro-rock outfit formed by Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (the keyboardist and bass player from jam-band giants The Disco Biscuits), as well as New York producer DJ Omen. The band has experienced several permutations since its inception in 2004, but since the recent addition of guitarist Chris Michetti and drummers Darren Shearer, from the New Deal, and Mike Greenfield, from Lotus, the group has garnered serious respect for its expansive sound. Fans and critics no longer see the group as a mere extension of the Bisco movement. Conspirator defies distinct genre classification as it takes cues from all over the electronic musical spectrum, including dub-step, house, and drum and bass.
Conspirator performs Wednesday, October 10, 9 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $15-$20. 325-5600, waterstreetmusic.com.
