STS9 brought their Great Cycle Spectacle tour to Philadelphia’s Tower Theater last night along with a special Halloween adventure. The band previously covered Michael Jackson’s “holiday” classic at the Fox Theater in Atlanta a few days ago so we kind of thought they would bust this out again for the special Halloween occasion. Um, yea, we got it and more!
How about a horn section, other covers including 2001, The White Stripes (I know I heard it, but it didn’t show up on their twitter feed), The Rolling Stones, The Cure, and Daft Punk (see White Stripes note), a Halloween video montage mixed with tripped out acid warp, and staple STS9 jam vehicles.
Below is a video I recorded for their opener. EDIT: there’s a brief moment where i try to change lenses for a closer look. I thought I could be quick to change, but hard to do in the dark. #excusesfornotbeingapro. If you’re thinking of catching STS9’s remaining Great Cycle Spectacle shows in Boston or NYC, DO IT!
