Revel in the electro-funk power of STS9

A great live performance can be compared to a math equation: good music + energy = equals fans wanting more.
Founded in Atlanta, STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9) includes five members: Hunter Brown (guitar/MIDI keyboard), Jeffree Lerner (percussion/hand sonic), David Murphy (bass/MIDI keyboard) and David Phipps (keyboards) and Zach Velmer (drums). STS9 has built a reputation for their unique sound, mixing live rock instruments and electronics to create what they describe as “post-rock dance music.”
Over the last few years, STS9 has quietly—well, maybe not quietly—established itself as one of the top touring acts in the country. They average more than 4,200 tickets sold per city and have performed with some of the more interesting acts in modern music—Ghostland Observatory, Big Boi and Jay-Z, among others, and headlined Lollapalooza.
West Coast bass music producer Russ Liquid will open tonight’s show. Tickets are $24 and doors open 7 p.m. The venue is 16-plus unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
