What Happened to Sound Tribe Sectors 1-8?

The State Theatre is the least likely place for fans to get up out of their seats and shake what their mommas gave them, but on Wednesday night, Sound Tribe Sector 9 was serving up raver specials on the house.

The band stunned their fans with sick drum fills, mind blowing bass, and a face melting light show that would convince anybody that they were rolling face (although many were rolling face). STS9’s unique blend of jam band style with an electronic/house coating is what brought out such a lively crowd.

From druggies to hippie chicks to just flat out weirdos, the audience wore many hats—literally; allow me to enlighten you: Santa hats, sombreros, beanies, feather hats, birthday cake hats, furry hats. This was one of the oddest displays in State Theatre history.

STS9 is a “Livetronica” band that is based out in California and is very accustomed to playing large venues and festivals. It was a rarity in the band’s persona to play out in central Pennsylvania in one of the smallest venues. Bassist David Murphy gave a shout out to the crazed Penn Staters, saying how much fun his band was having and thanking the audience for being so devoted.

(To the one named Samantha: if you read this, I want to thank you for covering me in glitter. Your damn fairy dust probably won’t come off for the next three days.)
