Sound Tribe Sector 9
September 8 @ 5:00 pm - September 9 @ 11:00 pm$2 – $85
STS9 will be performing LIVE on the Outdoor Stage at Salvage Station on Friday, September 8th and Saturday, September 9th , 2023 for their end of summer event, LAND OF THE SKY! Doors open at 5:00PM and the music starts at 6:30PM. This is a General Admission, 12+ only event.
With an ethos rooted in exploration, STS9 has been a sonic pioneer for two decades. Using
electronic and acoustic means, the instrumental five-piece—comprised of Hunter Brown
(guitar/keys), Jeffree Lerner (percussion), David Phipps (keyboards), Zach Velmer (drums), and
Alana Rocklin (bass)—channels the primordial and celestial, producing a cutting-edge sound that
has forged a path for multiple generations of electronic dance music.
STS9’s innate sense of innovation is grounded by the group’s desire to forge universal
connections. Seamlessly integrating their exploratory and improvisation-based music with a fully
immersive light show, each performance is a transcendent celebration of humanity. The group
continues to find ways to build community, consistently spearheading charitable efforts and
founding its own independent record label, 1320 Records.
Having released twelve albums in the last twenty years, STS9’s legacy unfolds into the future.
The group has been honored with induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame and earns
headlining slots at countless music festivals across the country. With the help of the group’s
dedicated fanbase, STS9 has performed countless shows nationwide and consistently sells out
legendary venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
