STS9 likes to get creative when choosing openers for their annual Red Rocks run every September. In the past the likes of Snoop Dogg and Thievery Corporation have warmed up the thousands in Morrison. The headliners for STS9’s 11th Red Rocks show have been announced and includes Nas, Tycho, AraabMuzik and XXYYXX.
Certainly aiming at the crowd of 2011’s Snoop Dogg opener, Nas performs on the Sept. 6 show. Along with him is araabMuzik, the young hip-hop producer known for working with Fabolos and Busta Rhymes. On Sept. 7th, ambient producer, Tycho opens with XXYYXX. This will be the biggest Colorado show for teenage producer XXYYXX. He last headlined an unexpectedly sold out Larimer Lounge show in February.
