We talk to Mark and Ben about the history of Manic Presents. We dig into an archived show list and talk about some specific landmark shows and some with fun footnotes and anecdotes.  We talk about how much Manic has grown from its Manic Productions past to its current incarnation as part of Premier Concerts; the journey from booking in small rental halls to currently booking at Cafe 9, Space Ballroom and College Street Music regularly.
