STS9 were joined by a horn section last night for their debut cover of “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” by fellow Georgia natives Outkast at the George Theater in Athens, GA. It was a fitting way for the band to celebrate their return to one of their favorite venues in the state they used to call home. After the tune, the horns stuck around for renditions of Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” and King Tubby’s “King Pharaoh’s Dub” (which they refer to as “2001” and “King Pharaoh’s Tomb,” respectively).
The night also featured a stellar take on “ABCees,” as well as a the rare “And Some Are Angels.” The encore also included covers of Deee-Lite’s “What Is Love?” and Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” (which the band calls “Grizzly”).
As previously reported, STS9 are currently in the middle of their spring tour. The band will be performing at the Georgia Theatre again tonight.
