STS9 to Perform ‘Axe The Cables’ Acoustic Set for Jazzfest Weekend

Sound Tribe Sector 9’s (STS9) “Get Loud” tour has already been one of the most successful tours of 2017.

The band has traveled everywhere from Las Vegas to Milwaukee, and will be concluding one of the most epic tours right in the heart of New Orleans.

The Atlanta-based livetronica act has been prevalent in the scene since 1997 when the group formed. Their use of experimental jam tied with electronic techniques has truly put Sound Tribe on the map far and wide. Audiences in both the electronica and jam world can’t get enough of this prolific act.

And now they’ve gone and surprised us again by bringing back the Axe the Cables acoustic set for New Orleans Jazzfest Weekend. Performing over two nights at the Joy Theater, this is an event you can’t miss. Enter our ticket giveaway below: 

Through the duration of the entire tour, each stop has only been a true STS9 set, not Axe The Cables.

For those that don’t know, an Axe The Cables set is all-acoustic and jam bliss. It has been said that axed sets will make you cry, so be prepared for some feels. STS9 has played axed sets in their hometown of Atlanta and at Electric Forest 2016, but they have not played on that caliber since.

For those attending weekend 1 of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest, STS9 will the perfect after-party and are playing both Friday/Saturday night: April 28- 29. Tickets can be purchased for the events here
