[UPDATE 12/29/21]: STS9 will stage its East of the Sun run at Atlanta, GA’s The Eastern June 2nd–5th, 2022, the band announced. What was originally scheduled as a New Year’s Eve run was postponed due to the rising COVID-19 omicron variant.
The four-night run was set to mark the jamtronica outfit’s first shows indoors in over two years. Tribe was slated to begin the run on December 29th with a special “Wave Spell” improvisational set prior to a two-set performance, with support from Richard Devine, Cloudchord, and No Stress on the following nights, respectively.
UPDATE: East Of The Sun will now take place June 2-5, 2022. We’re moving the whole concept that we’ve been planning for months to these dates, and are still bringing our new production as well. We’re too excited about it not to share… and it’s important to us that the STS9 rendition of the West Of The Moon / East Of The Sun story be told in its entirety
The additional Wave Spell set is still set for Night 1 (June 2nd), and we’ll be treating June 4th like NYE, balloon drop and all more info and insights TBA!
If you want to join us next spring, your tickets will automatically transfer and remain valid, so no action is required. If you can’t make the new dates and would like a refund, you will have 30 days to request a refund starting today. All ticket purchasers will receive an email from AXS with more info and instructions. If you run into any issues, please contact the promoters and they will get you sorted: https://zeromile.com/contact/

[12/14/21]: STS9 has called off its upcoming East of the Sun New Year’s run at Atlanta, GA’s The Eastern amid the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant. The shows were due to be the pioneering jamtronica outfit’s first indoor performances in two years.
The band has yet to determine updated dates for the four shows, initially slated to take place on 12/29, 12/30, 12/31, and 1/1 and feature supporting performance by Richard Devine, Cloudchord, and No Stress in addition to an all-improve STS9 “Wave Spell” set.
Read the full statement from STS9 on the run’s postponement below:
PLEASE READ: We’ve been keeping a close eye on the recent surge of the COVID-19 Omicron variant that has been spreading at a rapid rate around the country. With the health and safety of our fans, family, friends, crew/team, venue staff, and the ATL community in mind, we have decided to postpone the 4-night New Year’s run.
These shows in Atlanta would have been the first we’ve played indoors in two years… and with all four nights almost completely sold out, we felt it wrong to gather together inside and pack out The Eastern multiple days in a row. We have also factored in the fact that everyone will be coming out of the holidays and traveling to Georgia from all over the country. This is a recipe for spreading the virus even more. It was important to all those involved with putting on this event to get the word out ASAP, not only so those coming could have as much time as possible to adjust their travel arrangements, but also so we all don’t run the risk of descending upon ATL just to have shows canceled mid run.
For over 20 years we have set out to create safe environments for people to come together to enjoy art and music – an indoor event at this moment has the realistic potential to be unsafe for those we care about. Please know, this decision wasn’t an easy one – it’s a heartbreaking one. We have been looking forward to this event since its conception over a year ago. We’ve been working on overdrive in the studio creating something truly special for everyone. We were so eager to see all of you again.
We are working to reschedule these shows as soon as possible. Please hang onto your tickets while we work with [The Eastern] to find new dates.
Along with our crew and team, we appreciate everyone’s understanding here. We hope you have a lovely holiday season ❤️ please stay safe out there. And please join us in doing your part to help stop yet another increase in transmission of the virus. Listen to the experts. Take care of your community. Let’s work together so we see each other again in 2022.
