Thievery Corporation opened their unseemly early 5:15 set with their quintessential Lebanese Blond. Gotta love a live sitar – which I had never seen before. The spinning duo along with several singers, a badass bassist, and their sitar player, amongst others played “Shadows of Ourselves”, “Babylon First”, “Vampire”, “38.45”, amongst others. Another guest singer – a low budget David Byrne – came on to sing “Hearts a Lonely Hunter”. Unfortunately he sounded like a low budget David Byrne – the Tommy Bahama shirt didn’t exactly help. The crowd didn’t seem to mind the early set and danced to their own rhythm all the same. One young gentleman had the fabulous idea to stuff his arms into his tshirt and dance like a TRex…brilliant and somehow a perfect accompaniment to Thievery. They closed with the always awesome “Warning Shots”. And I meandered back to the Pavilion Main Stage to rejoin Allison. [Yeah Right]

Thievery Corporation just released a 16 track greatest hits compilation entitled It Takes a Thief. The band is about to begin a tour in support of their new record and in that regard, you can catch them at the Beacon Theatre on October 18 and 19 with Massive Attack and Martina Topley Bird (Buy Tickets).
