Review: STS9 at Red Rocks, 9/9/11

Since this was a sold-out show, there was really no possibility of my seeing the opening act, Up Until Now, as I was trapped on the south staircase in a sea of wookies and wookettes. Granted, there really wasn't anything I was more excited about than Snoop Dogg, who blinged a glistening "Snoop Dogg" across his microphone, ahem, pimp hand, for the entirety of his set. Sound Tribe Sector 9 did, of course, not let anyone down with the two raging sets and a crusher of a closer to end the second set that included "EHM," one of the most musically diverse tracks of the night.
