About Partisan:
Partisan Records is a Brooklyn-based artist-run independent label dedicated
to the unique visions of those we are so privileged to represent. We believe that artistry in its many forms essentially has a singular purpose: to create and share the next new story. At Partisan, our artists create the stories that others will tell.

Partisan Records along with Knitting Factory Entertainment is proud to present the Green Manalishi Tour 2009 featuring the entire roster of Partisan artists for a limited East Coast run of 6 dates. At Partisan, we’re assembling a remarkable community of artists, musicians, and counter-culture misfits who are as talented as they are “colorful”. For all of their genuine “colorfulness”, we are reminded why we’re somewhat consciously creating this madhouse every time we hang out, hear a song, or watch a performance by one of our artists / bands. They are some of the greatest writers and performers around, and we feel incredibly privileged to be working with them. Assembling this mob for one tour has been no easy task, and we can’t express from a financial / mental standpoint the sheer
terror we feel knowing the Bacchanalian gathering is rapidly approaching. So, feel free to reap the rewards from our questionable judgment while these incredibly gifted “colorful” people are all in one place. Are we self destructive? Maybe. Are we going to eat it in a year or two as the industry collapses and our bands leave us to sign with Warner/EMI/Sony/Universal? Possibly. But like Conan said, “Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.”
