Thievery Corporation

On October 21, 2010, I saw the Washington DC based DJ duo Thievery Corporation live at the Beacon Theater in New York.  They hit the stage at 9 pm and though they opened the show which later featured Massive Attack, the band played for an astonishing hour and a half!  The music of Thievery Corporation is lush, has fat beats and makes you want to close your eyes and shake everything you’ve got.  In concert, that’s exactly what the sold out crowd did.  It was a non-stop dance party of love as the band played song after song with each track becoming a little bit more funky than the preceding one.  Each song featured different vocalists and as each singer exited the stage, they shouted out “Theivery Corporation!”  It was great. On the picture taking front, there was not much to photograph as the stage was lit with flashing lights throughout the performance, but if you ever get a chance to see them live, I recommend it!

See the set list (as well as who sung each track), after the jump.
