STS9 returned home to Athens' own Georgia Theatre for two sold out shows. From STS9's humble beginnings all the way to the band's rise to dominance as one of the most successful electronic rock bands in the country, this historic venue has seen it all. The band debuted their raucous cover of a hometown favorite, Outkast's "SpottieOttieDopaliscous," a fitting opener that drove the local Georgia crowd wild. STS9 powered through covers of the legendary classic " 2001(Also Sprach Zarathustra)" and "King Pharaoh's Tomb," all replete with a stellar horn section. There were new favorites like "Vapors" and "Simulator" mixed among fan-favorite classics like "Moon Socket." The second set launched with a huge performance of "Bigs" and an intense performance of "T.W.E.L.V.E" At the peak of the show's energy, the band blew the roof off with "Inspire Strikes Back," a song they've been playing in this venue for the past fifteen years. All this time later, the track still had the power to transform the whole venue into one massive dance party.
