Two showings remain
The electronic band STS9 is returning to the Denver/Boulder area with highly anticipated new material throughout the week.
Their visit on Thursday night at the Boulder Theater is over, but the show continues at Red Rocks on Friday and Saturday night.
On Friday Talib Kwell will open and Flying Lotus will perform during set breaks, and on Saturday Ghostland Observatory will open and Bassnectar will cover set breaks. Tickets are still available for both nights at Red Rocks.
STS9 has seen great success with their studio-recorded albums Artifact and Peaceblaster, but they are best known for their live performances.
Concerts often include multiple sets, light shows and live painters on stage. STS9 shows include a lot of improvisation, making each show a unique experience, and this is also their first visit to the Denver/Boulder area since the release of their newest album Peaceblaster.
“I’m looking forward to hearing the new material from Peaceblaster. I think this show is going to be a lot different from their previous concerts,” said Grant Blakeslee, a sophomore English major.
For those who missed the Boulder show, there is still plenty to look forward to at Red Rocks.
“I’m really excited to see them play at Red Rocks because I think they really go all out for the Colorado crowd. The best STS9 show I’ve seen has been at the Boulder Theater,” said Nate Lander, a sophomore film studies major who has attended twelve STS9 concerts.
Overall there’s a lot of enthusiasm for this event in the Boulder community.
“This is our biggest event of the year,” said Charlie Kern, vice president of the Basics Fund, a non-profit organization that will provide transportation to both Red Rocks performances.
Don’t forget to check out the official STS9 after parties. On Friday and Saturday night, The Gothic Theatre will host performances that will include artists such as Hallucinogen, Shpongle, Pretty Lights and many others.
