Sound Tribe Sector 9

When: Wed., Oct. 28, 8 p.m. 2015

A staple of this young millennium’s jam circuit, STS9 had a huge hand in cultivating the current scene of livetronica bands. While they routinely release live recordings, the band’s most recent album remains 2011’s EP, When the Dust Settles. On those five tracks, STS9 continued to push their sound from the band’s roots of deep space funk (see “Moon Socket”) into more simply danceable electronica (the present-day “Scheme”). Despite the ups and downs of a nearly 20-year career together, the STS9 has grown considerably with each phase. “Our repertoire is bigger than it has ever been,” drummer Zach Velmer told Jambase last fall. “We’ve written new songs and are going back to old songs and I think the setlists are showing that. It’s epic. It’s breathing new life in, and it’s just fucking epic.” (Eric Sandy)
