STS9 erupted on the Georgia Theatre for the second night of their Athens run. The dedicated fan base from their home state was treated to an incredible show that had them buzzing from the get go. The band played an explosive "Scheme" to start, followed immediately by the classic "Artifact" track "Vibyl", featuring David Murphy's beautifully smooth bass line. A rowdy "Instantly" had the crowd worked into a frenzy and only the beautiful version of "Circus" that followed could allow the fans a break to observe Lighting Designer Saxton Waller's incredible work to the backdrop of the inspiring tune. The old favorites kept coming with "Warrior", "Arigato" and "Blu Mood", which features a masterful guitar riff nailed by Hunter Brown. To kick off the second set, the band performed a dance-inducing version of "Kabuki". Set 2 continued the trend of STS9's most recent tour theme that blend the old with the new. Established favorites "F.Word" and "One A Day" were played amidst "20-12" and "March", both newer songs that are redefining electronic rock. During Rent, David Phipps' now famous haunting synthesizer riff had Athens fans waving their arms in unison. A powerful encore started with the funky "Wika Chikana". The band closed with "Kamuy", a song featuring Zach Velmer and Jeffree Lerner dueling on drums, showcasing the heartbeat of STS9. This show is a must-have for STS9 fans old and new!
