STS9’s Zach Velmer on fan service and his band’s sold-out three-night stand at Belly Up
“The band is also setting up shop at Skye Gallery downtown with a pop-up art show featuring four original pieces of work by STS9. They’re based on the cosmic symbols that have long filled STS9’s album covers, T-shirts and multimedia concerts. The band and gallerist Skye Weinglass are hosting pre-parties at the gallery before each of the weekend’s shows.
“The last time we were there, Skye had a show and we were like, ‘Why don’t we just do something here?’” Velmer said. “It’s exciting for us, and for Aspen, and it’s a different experience for the fans.””
