When New Times sat down with STS9's David Phipps last week, the moral of the interview was that great music comes from a combination of talent and intention. The band's goal, as Phipps put it, is to make music that makes people feel like "this is the best life ever." On Friday, STS9, along with DJ Morale of San Francisco, performed for a combined four hours, spreading their cosmic sonic debris on a packed Revolution Live crowd, fully engaged in reciprocating that "best life ever" attitude.
The whole scene downtown is heavy in the depravity department. Parking in the six dollar lot, across from the eight dollar lot, and diagonal from the metered parking garage downtown, the side street outside of Off The Hookah is lit with the cleansing hellfire of production lamps capturing God knows what else other than the "dressed enough" bottoms of cocktail waitresses.
