If you’ve ever seen Man Man perform live, you know just how much energy is present onstage. Their reluctance to actually speak to the crowd during the show has an eerie effect on the performance. Frontman Honus Honus (née Ryan Kattner) led the experimental rockers dancing around Atlanta’s Terminal West—sometimes in a sparkly dress—shooting confetti into the crowd and from time to time shoving stage jumpers back into the crowd. It is like watching a Vaudevillian performance on hallucinogens.
Philadelphia natives are mellower offstage, yet always cracking jokes. After almost a decade of performing, it seems as if the road has given them the ability to simply flip a switch and become their stage characters.
