STS9 - Sound Tribe Sector 9 Tickets
Sound Tribe Sector 9 (abbreviated as STS9) is an instrumental band known for their live performances. The band's genre-blending sound is based heavily on instrumental rock and electronic music crossed with elements of funk, jazz, drum and bass, psychedelia, and hip hop. Self-described as "post-rock dance music". The band mixes standard live rock instrumentation with electronics, favoring group rhythm over individual solos.
STS9's concerts feature rotating set lists, remixed songs, and extended improvisational sections. Typically, the band will play over 2 hours of music, spanning two sets and an encore; a run of multiple shows in one town will rarely have a song performed more than once. Improvisations, a highlight of STS9's concerts, usually come from subtle melodic and rhythmic shifts supported by multiple band members, rather than solo performances. This is a notable contrast with typical jambands.
Since early 2005, the band has moved towards more structured compositions. The band has decreased its emphasis on improvisation and extended jamming in concert, and increased its focus on composition, arrangement, and power. Although more recently they have started to bring back some improvisational sound to their live performances.
The audience is an integral part of the concert, and their reaction influences the performance. According to their FAQ, their original concept for live performance was 'centered around extended improvisation and the attainment of a higher collective consciousness through the trance state generated by their music.'
STS9 has released five studio albums, one remixed album, and one live DVD (Live As Time Changes) on their own label 1320 Records. As an independent artist, they have succeeded by using their live performance to conduct multiple concert tours and appear at music festivals. They have achieved significant niche popularity in a few areas of the country through frequent appearances, most notably in greater San Francisco Bay Area including Santa Cruz; the greater Denver area including Boulder; as well as Asheville, NC, and the greater Atlanta area including Athens, GA.
