Hello everyone.

Years before Streetlight Manifesto came into existence, way back in the year 2000, a (not so) small group of college students gathered in a dark basement in suburban NJ to record original music. A total of 16 musicians contributed to a 4 song EP, which was then released under the name BANDITS OF THE ACOUSTIC REVOLUTION (BOTAR, if you’re into the whole brevity bit). The group was made up of strictly acoustic instruments; acoustic guitars, an upright bass, violins, cellos, trumpets, saxes and more, but the music was decidedly fast tempoed and energetic, something of a contrast to the majority of the music traditionally played by said instruments. Because of limited resources and time, future plans for the project had to be put on ice for the next decade and a half or so. In its stead and from its bones, Streetlight Manifesto came screaming into this world and has been touring and releasing music since.

Today, it is with hearts bursting with joy that we announce, that as of January of 2018, the ice will have completely and permanently melted. BOTAR is back, and ready to pick up where it left off. To celebrate its rebirth, BOTAR will be performing a full set of Streetlight Manifesto songs, accompanied by a 40+ member orchestra on January 13 at the Beacon Theater in New York City and on January 25 & 26th at the Ace Theater in Los Angeles. We hope you can join us for this once in a lifetime occasion. Tickets will be on sale for all three shows this Friday. More information about the shows and about BOTAR (and its future) will be coming shortly and regularly.

Thank you for reading, and to those of you who never lost faith in BOTAR’s return: We hope we can live up to your expectations this January.

Finally this subforum is relevant!

But seriously this is pretty cool and exciting.
Guess I better put more effort into cleaning out the spam bots in here.

Thankyou.

What with This Poster coming back and your site update makes it feel like the good ol' days...
And then I remember that BOTAR now has an official Instagram and Tumblr and I get depressed...

Yeah, I'm so sick of 99% of their merch these days containing animals.

Especially all those fucking ugly tiger and panther shirts.
