Rollercoaster of STS9 

Electronica gods soothe and destroy

We could feel the bass shaking the amphitheater as soon as we walked into the Charleston Music Hall on Wednesday night for the Sound Tribe Sector 9 show. Rainbow lights burst from the stage, cascading through the silhouette of a crowd filled with dread heads and techno babies. It was hard not to compare the STS9 show to the collective experience of life. Each number sent us through a rollercoaster of ups and downs, dynamically transitioning from high impact frequencies to a waterfall of soothing beats. By the end of each song, our hands were raised in triumph as we let the music conquer our bodies with a lasting feeling of peace. Still craving more, we crossed over John Street to the Black Cart for the STS9 afterparty. Eliot Lipp and Chronicles of the Landsquid kicked it up a few notches and kept everyone raging. That, along with Black Cart's $2 well drinks, and the night of electronic music mania was complete. —Alison Sher
