Denver, CO @ Fillmore Auditorium 1/13 & 1/14
Chicago, IL @ Congress Theater 1/20 & 1/21

We have all heard about the hype surrounding the supposed cataclysmic changes coming for the planet in 2012. Some have predicted an apocalypse and others simply a new era for humanity.  No matter what you believe however, world famous “jamtronica” group STS9 has given us a great way to celebrate these changes by providing a musical spectacle like never before! On January 13 and 14 the group will be kicking off their “Great Cycle Spectacles” series in Denver, CO at the famous Fillmore Auditorium.
This exciting series of performances will start with the two nights in Denver next weekend, then jump to Chicago, IL at the Congress Theater for another two nights January 20 and 21. They will then travel down to Mayan Riviera, Mexico for a four night run January 26-30. The group will continue through a limited number of locations in 2012 promising a series of “one of a kind performances celebrating the end and beginning of the Mayan calendar cycle as well as a spectacle of music, art and imagination.”
Despite all of the crazy theories surrounding the 2012 phenomenon, there is no doubt that this series will help fans welcome the new “cycle” with enthusiasm…and of course a whole LOT of dancing. Any “average” STS9 show is filled with mind-blowing music, astonishing light shows and an energy that is truly unique—one can only imagine what is in store for this upcoming series of “one of a kind” performances.
To no surprise both nights in Denver are already sold out, however tickets are still available for both nights in Chicago at the Congress Theater.  To those of you hanging around the Midwest for winter break, this could be the perfect way to end it, and to those of you lucky enough to already have your tickets for the shows in Denver—start preparing to dance your way into this new cycle in the presence of some truly remarkable musical spectacles.
Tickets for the shows at the Congress Theater in Chicago January 20 & 21 can be found here. Be sure to get them while you still can!
