Thievery Corporation at Malkin Bowl in Vancouver

Comments 70 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Thievery Corporation will be playing Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park next month. Touring for their sixth studio album, Culture of Fear, this DJ duo has sold over 1.2 million albums in the US over their 15-year career. Their sound has been described as “space-rock” that is hip hop inspired with “airy down-temp trances and dub-reggae infused vibes”.

Their live performances are legendary as they’re known to bring out live bands for instrumentals and vocalists to compliment their smooth beats. Fresh off their shows in Hungary, Turkey, and headlining at Red Rocks in Australia, they’ll be gracing Vancouver with their presence as we coast into autumn. While there’s rain pouring down today, this beautiful outdoor concert would be a great way to extend all the good times had this summer in the sunshine.

Tickets for Thievery Corporation are available for $45.00 (plus service charges) and you can purchase them online through Live Nation or the Rogers Wireless Box Office.

It’s an early concert, starting around 5:30pm on September 13th at the lovely outdoor Malkin Bowl with guests Los Amigos Invisibles. If you would like to attend, I have a pair of tickets to give away, here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post with a Thievery Corporation song title (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)

    I will draw one winner this Friday, August 26, 2011 at 10:00am.

    Update The winner is chicgeek!

    33. ShawnTuesday, August 23rd, 2011 — 10:27am PDT

      I gotta admit that I have never heard of Thievery Corporation. Lebanese Blonde is brilliant and reminds me a lot of Morcheeba, with some middle eastern strings thrown in. Seeing them live, and outdoors, would secure me as a fan.

    34. BenJiTuesday, August 23rd, 2011 — 10:40am PDT

      Great venue to see TC! Shaolin satellite on a ferry ride out on the deck… One of my favourites!

      The Forgotten People

    61. MousseyThursday, August 25th, 2011 — 2:51pm PDT

      Wow! Back in the day this was definitely one of my favorite driving and/or coding bands to play in the background. How sweet that they are landing here in September. I’d say any song from their third album, “The Richest Man in Babylon,” however, I’ll use “Until the Morning” here.

      Since I rarely enter to win anything, anywhere, anytime , this is definitely one act I would bother to take the time to do so for. Thanks, Rebecca, for putting this out there.


    62. ArpyThursday, August 25th, 2011 — 3:14pm PDT

      It’s Mah Burday!

    63. annemarie slaterThursday, August 25th, 2011 — 6:21pm PDT
