… And the Cycle continues!! Ready to jumpstart their tour again in preparation of the summer, STS9 will be bringing their Great Cycle Spectacles performance for two nights – on April 20th (w/ Nosaj Thing) and on April 21st (w/ MiMOSA) – to The Fox Theater in Oakland. Additionally, the band will be hosting a public screening of their revolutionizing documentary film, Re:Generation, at the Landmark Bridge Theatre in San Francisco on April 19th. Unified Funk Option will be out in Cali covering the shows, as we’re sure that S9 is back and ready to bring the heat.
By now, any of you that are familiar with STS9 should know about “The Spectacles”. If not, don’t stress… here’s a little rundown from our Denver Great Cycle Spectacles Preview:
“The Great Cycle Spectacles represent the transition into an uncharted cycle of the Mayan calendar, and supposedly, a new era of enlightened thought and energy. Originally named Sector 9 (and eventually changed to STS9 due to trademark issues with Sector 9 longboards), the band’s identity and music brings tribal spirituality to life. A culmination of cultural expression from around the world, the Spectacles will highlight the importance of this 9th sector of the Mayan Calendar from which we are currently leaving.
According to Mayan spirituality, this sector of the Mayan Calendar is characterized by music, art, expression, and widespread communication, connectivity, and understanding; as foretold, the Great Cycle Spectacles will celebrate the fruition of the band’s mission to encourage widespread passion and expression. The energy that the band has devoted to their vision has actually yielded a “sound tribe.” The real beauty is the fostering of universal community, as the group has fostered a true community that is the real joy of STS9′s world.”
This summer is going to be huge for everyone that has tapped-in to the Sound Tribe Sector 9 community – between Spectacle performances and multiple festival appearances – and we couldn’t be more excited. Be sure to catch STS9 at one of their upcoming shows or festivals, and feel the true power of the Unified Funk that they spread through their music.
