STS9 Serve as Firemen at the Georgia Theatre

Last night, STS9 returned to its state of origin for a show at the Georgia Theatre. The band, which performed at the venue many times during its formative years, celebrated the Theatre’s return from fire devastation by dressing as firemen and appearing to the tune of Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House.” STS9 then moved into the title track of its latest EP “When The Dust Settles,” as it delivered a first set that also saw strong versions of “Golden Gate,” “Squares and Cubes” and “The Rabble.” Set two began with “Arigato” and also included “Circus,” “The Unquestionable Supremacy of Nature” and “Scheme” (which also appears on the group’s recent EP). The band encored with “We’ll Meet In our Dreams” and “EHM” to great effect and crowd response.

STS9′s fall tour will conclude this week, with the next show on Wednesday at the Lyric in Oxford, MS.

Im sorry I have to say it, I’m a huge sts9 fan but this tour has sucked. They have been playing the same songs at pretty much every single set. 10 of the 14 songs played at Halloween had been played the night before at moogfest. It’s Halloween, bands are supposed to break out something special and sts9 failed in the aspect and they have failed pretty much this whole tour. I will be seeing them in Dallas and I can almost tell you what songs what will be played. These songs will be played In Dallas 11/5-circus, f word, wtds, golden gate, simulator, scheme, 20-12, Tokyo, what is love

Maybe this should be an indication that you should be doing something more constructive with your life.

Hey, maybe “failed” is too strong a word, but if I were considering seeing multiple STS9 shows, this would be useful for me to know

Yep I agree. And all of these questions caonnt be separated from the questions of Global Capital. That is the primary issue that needs to be addressed, while nobody knows how to address it, and while nobody even raises it as a very real issue that immediately affects all the other internal issues.But generally I’m not too much against LTP after all he is an academic. We kinda need the return of inteligentsia and at least some form of intellectual debate on the political scene.;)
