STS9 plots summer tour

on April 05, 2010, 3:45pm

During the last decade, STS9 has become one of America’s pre-eminent festival experiences. Self -described as “post-rock dance music,” the 5-piece’s sound continues to be re-invented. Always based on a dynamic rhythm section, the band began with winding improvisations, morphed into a drum and bass influenced electronic-outfit, and then evolved into a group with the ability to create soundscapes mixing elements of hip-hop, funk, psychedelic rock, and jazz. But, in early 2010 the quintet “Axe[d] the Cables” and have started playing their first string of acoustic shows.

After a an upcoming series of anticipated festival appearances, STS9 will begin a massive summer tour with an “Axe the Cables” show at the Blender Theatre at Gramercy in New York City. Then, Northeast stops with Lotus and The Album Leaf, before they take on the Windy City with four performances during a two day stop.

STS9 will then join forces with jam-brethren The Disco Biscuits, providing Atlanta with a weekend it won’t soon forget.  After traveling through America’s heartland, they conclude the tour in Colorado.
