Here are Reverb’s best concerts for the week of 12/28/12-01/03/13. The list includes the Lumineers, the Black Angels, STS9 and more.
5) STS9, Dec. 29-31, Fillmore Auditorium, $89.75-$170.55
An STS9 concert is the closest thing one can get to stepping into the “Tron” world. The neon lights and mix of electronic and live instrumentation is a near-fictional dose of man-meets-machine mania. This type of sensory overload has gained STS9 acclaim for its live performances. As the band did in 2009 and 2010, it will bring electronic trances and the best light show in the industry to Colorado for three nights leading up to and including New Year’s Eve. Tickets for shows on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Fillmore Auditorium sell for $89.75. A pass for all three days costs $170.55. livenation.com.
