If you're going to drop acid on Halloween (and really, who isn't) then this is the place to do it. Sure, wars and memorials might be an epic bummerino on your typical lysergic adventurebut with an auditorium full of patchwork pants and hacky-sacks, there's no way your good vibes will be spoiled by such trifles as, er, reality. Plus with thousands of people dancing like wet noodles in a strong wind, nobody will know you're highand even if they do, they won't care cuz they're so fuckin' wasted, brah! STS9, as the kids call 'em, make electro-jam music with live instruments that straddles the line between your average fretboard-flogging patchouli-rock and squiggly computer sounds. But if you want to catch 'em you're gonna have to be clever: the show's sold out. Maybe you can trade some of that blotter in the parking lot.
