THIEVERY CORPORATION – VANCOUVER – 2011

THIEVERY CORPORATION AT MALKIN BOWL – STANLEY PARK

Tuesday, September 13th – 5:30pm at Malkin Bowl, Thievery Corporation will perform with guests Los Amigos Invisibles. Culture of Fear – 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. The title track, featuring vocals/lyrics by rapper Mr. Lif, comments on the fact that, nearly 10 years after 9/11, “everyone is afraid of everything,” Hilton says. “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.” Adds Garza: “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 aren’t what we should fear. The intrusion into your day-to-day rights and privacy are a whole lot scarier.”
