Thievery Corporation tomorrow at Kastles Stadium

Thievery corpI.M.P. presents a special concert at the new Kastles Stadium from D.C.’s own international music juggernaut, Thievery Corporation. At its best, Eric Hilton and Rob Garza’s chillout electronic band transports you to the kind of progressive, multicultural global city that Washington could, even should, be. The music deftly incorporates various musical influences — reggae, punk, soul, Afrobeat, Arabic — and exotic musical instruments — sitar, conga drums, tablas. And the lyrics are as socially conscious as they come. The band’s new sixth set, Culture of Fear, for example, offers a critique of our society’s increased levels of mistrust and security since 9/11. Saturday, Aug. 20. Doors at 6 p.m. Kastles Stadium at the Wharf, 800 Water St. SW. Tickets are $45. Visit 930.com.
