Sound tribe plays a double set and keeps the dance party raging
Imagine a rave-like dance party with thousands of people all getting down to a jam band wearing crazy outfits like furry animal hats, Indian head dresses, and carrying stick horses covered in Christmas lights. Or you don't have to imagine that at all if you were at Sound Tribe Sector 9's show at the Fillmore in Denver on Wednesday.
A sold-out crowd squeezed into the Fillmore Auditorium to catch the first of three consecutive shows, two of which were completely sold-out, and to dance fiercely into the late hours of the night. There was a bit of desperation in front of the venue, with a constant crew of people looking for any chance to grab an extra ticket for any of the up-and-coming STS9 shows, the final show which lands on New Year's Eve. Inside was a relentless dance party, laden with crazy costumes, and many more who just wanted to let loose and make the Fillmore a bonafide club.
STS9 was quick to step up to the plate after Mimosa's hour-long set and proceeded to deliver not one, but two one-hour sets that never let the dance party die. The crowd didn't seem to mind the packed house, which only seemed to cater to the vibe of the evening. The band spent little time talking, and most of the time playing in harmony to the elaborate light set up that framed the stage.
Impressively, this is only the beginning of their consecutive shows, all which include after-parties at Cassleman's.
