STS9 Covers “What Is Love”, Weaves In “Modular” Jams In Austin Opener [Setlist/Video]

first_imgLast night, STS9 made their way to ACL Live at The Moody Theater for their first of two shows this weekend in Austin, TX with their new head lighting designer Tiberius Benson. While fans were disappointed at last week’s news that former lighting designer Saxton Waller was leaving the band, Benson stepped up big in Austin, as both the musicians and the production crew fired on all cylinders for a fantastic Friday night show.Beginning and ending with a “Modular” intro/outro, set one featured skilled playing and several seamless segues including a fantastic “The Paint” -> “Monkey Music” -> “ReEmergence” -> “Monkey Music” segment and an excellent “Shock Doctrine” that flowed into the set’s “Modular” outro.The second set say the band continue to bring their A-game, as they executed a fiery “Get Loud” -> “Light Years” -> “Wika Chikana” segment, a “2012” with yet another “Modular” jam, and a set-closing cover of dance club favorite “What Is Love” by Deee Lite.You can watch footage of Tiberius’s lighting work and the “Modular” jam in “2012” courtesy of Heady Flair:STS9 returns to ACL Live at The Moody Theater tonight for the second half of their Austin run.Setlist: STS9 | ACL Live at The Moody Theater | Austin, TX | 1/27/17 (courtesy of Seth Jacobs)Set 1: Modular intro>> Oil & Water, Orbital, Sun Moon and Stars, The Paint>> Monkey Music>> ReEmergence>> Monkey Music, Shock Doctrine>> Modular outroSet 2: You Don’t Say, Get Loud*>> Light Years>> Wika Chikana, 2012^, When the Dust Settles Reprise%>> Ramone & Emiglio, What is LoveEncore: Squares & Cubes* Inspire Strikes Back tease^ Modular jam% Moonsocket teaselast_img read more
