MTAC announces The Protomen and The Man Power

NASHVILLE, TN - The Protomen and The Man Power will rock out at MTAC Goes To 11! The two bands join Asian synth-pop band The Slants in headlining the Easter weekend event.

The Protomen are more than just a band. They are messengers, riding atop an Iron Stallion on their way to deliver the most vicious rock 'n' roll fable that the world has ever known. With several planned albums, and a live show that could crumble mountains, there's no denying The Protomen have created a work unique to its medium. Yes, with their very own brand of robot rock, The Protomen are ready to fight. (P.S. They wrote a rock opera about the MegaMan universe.)

The Man Power has always been known for its over-the-top and unpredictable live shows, catchy songs, memorable hooks and dedication to its fans. Becoming the premier live rock 'n' roll experience. The band played everywhere from rock clubs to anime conventions to basements in order to spread the music. Building its reputation through live shows that consist of sing alongs, bringing the audience on stage and even celebrity cameos from time to time, one thing is for sure: you will never get the same Man Power show twice.

The Protomen, The Man Power and The Slants will be joined by One Hard Night, ST~Prime and Blue Grade to provide a packed musical line-up at the music-themed MTAC Goes To 11.

Pre-registration is still open at Three-day memberships are available for $40 until April 15, with two-day, one-day and group memberships available for cheaper rates. Lifetime memberships are also available in limited quanity for $250 each. For more news, stay tuned to and follow MTAC at and
