We really wanted to catch this show together, since it would probably be our only chance to see STS9 in 2009. Unfortunately, Carley had work obligations and couldn't make it, so Rob went solo and met up with our friend Clay outside the show.
It was my first time at the Alabama Theatre.
Really nice place!
It reminded me a lot of the Tabernacle in Atlanta, with its balconies and anterooms, but smaller, and with seats on the floor.
The band had a totally new stage arrangement since I last saw them on New Years Eve 2008. Each band member was in a different position than before.
As you can tell from the photos, we had excellent seats - in the 2nd row!
Hunter crankin' out the Dirty Nine on Somesing.
Jeffrey in charge on Satori.
Murphy, Zach and Phipps find a nasty groove in Wika Chikana.
Overall they avoided their most recent material from the new album. The set did feature a few old-school nuggets that really hit the spot. The setlist was:
Beyond Right Now
New New 4 U U
This is how close to the stage our seats were!

Mirrors on the ceiling!
Until next time...
