STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9) showed up big in Athens, GA at the Classic Center, after taking about a 4 month break from from their usual rigorous tour schedule. Everyone could sense from start to finish that there was something behind the shows and it ran across the smiling faces of crowd and band members alike. Not being familiar with the Classic Center I was extremely pleased the whole time with the venue as a whole. The sound was amazing, ushers extremely generous and not a bad seat in the house. It was truly inspiring to see David Murphy back on stage and doing so well after such a short recovery period. The sets were a perfect mix of old and new. I thank these guys and the whole community for constantly inspiring myself and others around me. A few pictures and set lists from the shows below.. Until next time!
Oh! And possibly saving the best mention for last was the Jason Garcia, Kris Davidson and David Hale collaboration during both nights! Seeing three of our all time favorite artists working simultaneously on the same canvas was simply amazing! Check out their work on their name-links above.
