Renowned Washington, DC - based DJ duo Thievery Corporation will release a brand new live performance DVD titled Thievery Corporation: Live at the 9:30 Club on September 6. The concert documentary will be released through Fontana Distribution and available at retailers across the country. A digital version will be available at iTunes and Amazon soon.
In January of 2010, Thievery Corporation thrilled fans when they sold out 5 consecutive nights at local DC venue, 9:30 Club. The shows were filmed with vintage anamorphic lenses that created flaws and subtle characteristics (including creating flares as the light hits the lens), and have an otherworldly and abstract visual quality. The result is an intimate account of the band and a dazzling recording of one of the world’s most unique musical stage-shows.
Over the years, Thievery Corporation has become known for the carnival-esque atmosphere of their live shows, during which they bring out a 15-member live band of musicians and vocalists. The group has sold out shows at such famed venues as the Hollywood Bowl, London's 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, and the Theatro Vrahon Melina Merkouri in Athens, Greece, among many others.
Thievery Corporation continues to blend musical styles in their trademark fashion; space-rock jams lead to hip-
hop inspired grooves, airy down-temp trances and dub-reggae infused vibes throughout the journey.
