RSR PC 025 Mark & Ben from Manic Presents

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.

Spaceland Ballroom

Hamden, CT


A special seated performance!

I love sitting! If you love sitting and watching bands and would also love a free poster signed by the band (the band being Low – not trying to be tricky there)… Here’s a picture in fact:

 So, yea, if you want that poster and would like a pair of tickets to the show please make it to the store and claim the poster by asking for it at the counter. We’ll give you the poster and you’ll win free entry for yourself and a guest. Easy.



We’ve got two pairs of tickets to the WHY? show Monday, February 11th at The Space in Hamden, CT. All you have to do is come down to Redscroll and instagram a photo of yourself in front of the store (include the sign in the pic!). Don’t forget to use the hashtag, “#Redscroll” and tag us in (@redscroll)! Come inside when you’re done foolin’ around with your phone and see if you’ve won.

If you don’t win, we’ll sell you some tickets since you’re here anyway!
