There are just some events that occur in NYC that can’t be missed. Yes, it is a wild rockin’ city just full to the brim with theatre, films, poetry reading, concerts, etc. And getting to even a few of these events can stretch one’s time, temperament and budget to be sure…especially post-Thanksgiving/pre-Christmas! But the one place the Von Gutenberg team got to this crazy week of one holiday and before another was Webster Hall down on 11th street to see Thievery Corporation.
As a lifestyle, latex and fantasy portal we try and keep up with all that tickles the senses (as you can see on our Fantasy Event List http://fantasyeventlist.com/.) Rob Garza and Eric Hilton’s Thievery Corporation provided quite the tickle…and then some. The sold-out crowd standing at Webster Hall, danced, bounced, sung and other wise rocked this night (as our video below will attest) to the D.C. D.J.’s collection of amazing musicians. The multi-member band ran through their mélange of music styles, from Indian classical, bossa nova, ballads and modern ska, giving us the full smorgasbord of their talents.
One could barely catch their breath in all the wild lights and deep rich sounds. Standing as close as we were to the stage (as our pictures will surely show) we were especially struck with the clutch and sway of the groove coming off the stage and shooting out over the crowd.
We’d like to say you could catch the band tonight at Webster Hall, but they are sold out. An act this hot wasn’t going to roll through a city like Manhattan-and this time of year no less-and not sell tickets! Here is the link for the venue anyway http://www.websterhall.com/ and for Thievery Corporation, http://thieverycorporation.com/. A trip downtown might prove fruitful if you can scalp a ticket; it is well worth trying!
Sometimes all the elements come together famously and you experience one of those nights…this was certainly one of those nights. Great music, great crowd, great venue in a great city that can be as inspiring as it can be intimidating.
Von Gutenberg thanks Thievery Corporation for a great night in a fabulous city.
