9th Stage - Untitled Experience

Image and sound curator 9th Sage launches a new event in Houston bridging vibes, art, and a good time.

It’s unfair to call 9th Sage just a photographer.

Rather, the Houston resident is moreso a curator of images and sounds. Though it was 9th’s skill with a camera that got him noticed and generated his initial following – his camera work was one of many spotted at The Hive Society’s AXIOM event last summer, and he often plugs his portfolio on Twitter – 9th’s Soundcloud playlists are just as well-regarded as his angles and shots.

Though 9th Sage is a mostly mysterious figure who maintains a low profile, the artist will emerge from the shadows, so to speak, by way of a new event series he’s launching, “The Untitled Experience.” Volume One of that “Experience” goes down later this month, its intent simply to bring people together for a good time in an art-appreciative setting. “I’m putting it on by myself because I wanted to bring an event to the city that is out of the ordinary,” 9th told Day & A Dream, “and to introduce people to different sounds and vibes.”

9th Sage himself and The Regal People will provide sounds for the evening, with appearances throughout the evening from Brice Blanco, Danny Watts, and Soul Etiquette-affiliated saxophonist Phillippe Edison.

9th Sage’s “The Untitled Experience: Volume One” event goes down Thursday, June 23rd, at Chymistry Bar & Lounge, 1002 Almeda-Genoa Road, and should kick off at 8 PM. Pre-sale tickets for the event can be purchased here, though attendees can also purchase them at the door on the day of for $10.
