Win Tickets: Thievery Corporation at the Fox Theater

After the June release of their sixth studio album, Culture of Fear, the trip-hop-dub duo, Thievery Corporation has sold out tour dates across the county and is soon coming to Oakland's Fox Theater.

Cultures of Fear, describes bandmembers Eric Hilton and Rob Garza, "Is a cinematic-sounding inquiry into space rock that straddles the sweet spot between funk and soul, with a bit of dub and reggae thrown in for good measure."

Hilton explains the message of the album, "People are living like wimps. The terror level is always at orange. Now we've got body scanners in airports. Somehow the whole country's been spun into this pointless web of fear. Garza adds, "People have learned to be subservient to the system, automatically taking their shoes off at airports. Our message with this album is that there really is nothing to fear. The things we're being told to fear are what we should fear. The intrusion into your day-to-day rights and privacy are a whole lot scarier." - Thievery Corporation Official website
