Thievery Corporation: Babylon Falling Tour

If you’re trying to determine just what it is that Thievery Corporation does, suffice to say you’ll be hunting for a long time, because the two geniuses who founded this musical juggernaut keep moving the target. In the ’90s when Eric Hilton and Rob Garza met, bossa nova was the bond. Since then, they’ve added voices to the original instrumental sound and spun through acid jazz, trip hop, rock, electronica, chill-lounge, psychedelia, reggae, Afrobeat, and more. Here’s a safe bet: don’t judge a band by its previous album.

Eric Hilton & Rob Garza

Ever since the duo emerged with their music on an album titled Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi in 1997, they’ve garnered a dedicated following with eleven more albums and amazing live performances. The two most recent albums, Treasures from the Temple and La Force de Melodie, were released in 2018. They have also become a force politically with their music, and the duo have spoken out powerfully about war, hunger, injustice and similar themes.

This weekend

The current tour is called Babylon Falling, harkening back to the 2002 album The Richest Man in Babylon and its 2004 reworking, Babylon Rewound. The tour began last night (October 10) with a sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom. The tour continues with 14 more October dates, 17 in November, and 10 in December. Along the way, they will be joined by Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe for 11 shows, Boombox for two, and Brazilian Girls for four dates.
