How many highly successful musical artists do you know that have thrived for 20 years without a radio hit, a big budget video, or major label backing? Moreover, have managed to do high-profile TV appearances, own and operate their own independent label since day one, sell several million albums and continue to expand their fan base across the globe each year?
Thievery Corporation (a.k.a. Rob Garza and Eric Hilton), have collaborated with such uniquely famed artists David Byrne, Perry Farrell, The Flaming Lips, Anushka Shankar, Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Bebel Gilberto, and been featured on major film soundtracks such as Garden State. They’ve headlined top music festivals, such as Coachella and Lollapalooza, and have influenced a whole generation of electronic producers and DJs.
When they met in the mid-1990s, Hilton and Garza instantly bonded over a shared passion for musical soundscapes. Their first album set the beat for a 20+ year dance through dub, bossa nova, trip-hop, electronica, acid jazz, lounge, and laid-back grooves.
Thievery Corporation have since released 8 studio LP’s, 2 remix collections, 2 DJ mix albums, and continued to perform live on 5 continents. Along their unique musical journey, they have virtually defined an entire sub-genre of electronic music. Now, the Washington, D.C.-based duo are bringing their essential sound to the luxurious Grand Theatre in Reno. Don't miss this night of musical bliss.
