The weekend of June 24th is quickly turning into the ultimate Giant Step takeover. What with the Thievery Corporation show on Friday and our annual SummerStage party Saturday, your out of town friends are already burning up with summer envy. And just to make things more exciting, joining Thievery Corporation on Friday, June 24th, along with Raphael Saadiq, will be Dâm-Funk & Master Blazter at the Williamsburg Waterfront. Now tell me why you don't have your advance ticket yet?
As if the prospect of the upcoming Thievery Corporation show on June 24th at the Williamsburg Waterfront wasn't exciting enough, word has reached us that Raphael Saadiq will be joining the bill. More special guests are expected to be announced closer to the show. It would seem the perfect summer show just got more perfect.
Thievery Corporation just announced they will be performing live with special guests at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Friday, June 24th. Gearing up for the release of their 6th studio album, Culture of Fear (out in June on ESL Music), Rob Garza and Eric Hilton are revved up and ready to throw down at the perfect outdoor, summer venue.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 6th at Noon. You can purchase yours online via Ticketmaster, or you can pick it up in person at the Best Buy Theater Box Office (44th St. & Broadway) in Manhattan or at Sound Fix Records (Berry & N. 11th Sts.) in Williamsburg.
The great Thievery Corporation has a new album coming this Summer on ESL Music called Culture of Fear. Check out the five-minute mashup of new songs on Soundcloud below, and for more, check the thirty-minute DJ set on the ESL Music site.
Switchstance Recordings' debut music video comes from Kabanjak (one half of Ancient Astronauts) for "Don't Worry," featuring Sitali of Thievery Corporation's live band. Shot by ESL Music's Robin Bell on a sunny day in the nation's capitol, the backdrop for the video fits the song perfectly. And with new material from Kabanjak and the Ancient Astronauts coming soon, the new year is looking equally bright.
