Thievery Corporation at Red Rocks May 13
We are flying into Colorado from D.C. to see our favorite group live at the Red Rocks amphitheater on May 13th! We are also staying at the Arrowhead Manor. A beautiful B&B close to Red Rocks. Thievery Corporation is a Washington, D.C. based recording artist and DJ collective consisting of Rob Garza, Eric Hilton, and their supporting artists Rob Myers, Loulou Ghelichkhani, Natalia Clavier, Frank ‘Booty Lock’ Mitchell, Mr. Lif, Jeff Franca and Ashish Vyas. Their music style mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, reggae, Indian classical, Middle Eastern, hip hop, electronica and Brazilian. The duo has publicly stated their fondness of the Brazilian culture in interviews and liner notes of their releases, especially of the 60’s Bossa Nova music movement. Some of their earlier recordings even had specific artwork paying homage to classic releases by bossa nova artists like João Gilberto (His self-titled 1973 album) or Tom Jobim (Stone Flower). Thievery Corporation has taken progressive political stances on various issues, opposing war and exploitative trade agreements, while supporting human rights and food programs. Tracks such as “Amerimacka” and “Revolution Solution” from their albums The Cosmic Game and Richest Man in Babylon, along with the title tracks from those albums, reveal the group’s opposition to the positions and initiatives of former president George W. Bush‘s administration. We even booked a room with a private hot tub at the Arrowhead Manor B&B! It is going to be an excellent trip to Colorado! Looking forward to a great vacation out of the city!
