After finishing this year out in its home town of Atlanta with five shows at the Tabernacle, STS9 will be returning to Colorado (the act's home away from home) for a pair of shows at the Fillmore Auditorium on Friday, January 13 and Saturday, January 14. The Denver dates, which go on sale this Saturday, November 12, at 10 a.m. (fan club tix go on sale this Friday, 11/11/11, at...wait for it...11 a.m.), are the first shows in the band's Great Cycle Spectacles of 20-12, one-of-a-kind gigs, evidently, celebrating the beginning and end of the Mayan calendar cycle.
