Get excited children of the tribe, Sound Tribe Sector 9 is coming to Austin this Halloween yet again for a fantastic show at the Austin Music Hall. Following their Austin show, the band heads to New Orleans to continue Halloween celebrations at Joy Theater for a Voodoo Festival late night.
The five man lineup has performed before in Austin on Halloween back in 2008 and again during Halloween weekend in 2010 at Stubb’s with two nights of wild live music.
The veteran musicians have been around since the late 1990’s and have created a unique mix of sounds, pulling from funk, jazz, and drum and bass while fusing electronic style and live acoustics together.
Having toured all over the world, they’ve headlined national festivals like Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, and even our city’s very own Austin City Limits in 2009, to name a few.
If you’re not familiar with their music, a live show is something worth seeing more than once. The visually and audibly entrancing live performances blend to create an intense amount of energy in the audience that is an unforgettable experience.
It’s no wonder STS9 has such a large, strong fan base. As if they weren’t good enough, the band makes high-quality recordings of their performances that are available to download and purchase less than 24 hours after any given show. So if you can’t get enough from your last Sound Tribe experience, you get to relieve the show from the night before as soon as tomorrow.
Not only are they constantly giving back to their fans, but all the members participate in notable charity work, giving back to communities they visit. Back in 2009 they released the album PEACEBLASTER: The New Orleans Make It Right Remixes, a compilation of 30 tracks by a variety of artists, and donated 100% of the profits to the Make It Right Foundation to rebuild a home in New Orleans that had been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. They’ve also donated to charities including Rock Against Cancer, Yellow Ribbon Fund, Conscious Alliance, Global Education Fund, New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, Mariposa’s Art, Headcount, Samaritan House, and others.
Tickets go on sale Saturday September 7 at 10 am. And in the spirit of Halloween, show up in a costume!
