Rotture Presents: Gil Mantera's Party Dream / Atole / May Ling + guests
Gil Manteras Party Dream is an electronic synth-pop party band hailing originally from Youngstown, Ohio. Consisting of brothers Gil Mantera and Ultimate Donny, the Party Dream is known for their over-the-top live shows and updated channeling of 1980s synth-pop  la Tears for Fears. Their music blends synth-heavy electronic dance music with heavy basslines, distorted guitar, and even a few progressive rock influences.

They have toured several times with successful artists as varied as Grand Buffet, An Albatross, and Art Brut, and most notably were invited several times to play New York City with The Rapture. Originally a regional phenomenon, the Party Dream signed to Fat Possum Records, a primarily blues label that is also the home of The Black Keys and The Fiery Furnaces, and have begun extensive national touring. In mid-2006, they were invited to play the SXSW concert series in Austin, Texas, garnering enough attention at their three garish live shows to warrant a "Best Show [SXSW]" award from the Village Voice. They were also featured by Spin magazine as a Spin.com band of the day and warranted a recommendation on Timothy McSweeneys publishing house website.

The Party Dream is well-known among their fans for their pseudo-performance art approach to playing live, with sets that include not only musical performance, but also improvised stage patter, dance, and at times even elements of striptease. Driven by Gils synthesizer arrangements and Donnys wildly over-emotive vocal stylings, the Party Dream produces danceable, electronic music with recognizable hooks that are often performed by Gil, who sings exclusively through a vocoder. After originally focusing on improvised performance, the Party Dream has now matured into a dance band with recorded musical offerings that while not directly comparable with their frenetic live shows, has placed them in a position to expand on their regional success and join the indie/post-punk revival from a decidedly different angle than their peers.
