FRESH BAKIN PRESENTS THIEVERY CORPORATION AT THE GRAND SIERRA RESORT ON SEPTEMBER 2nd 2014
A GREAT DEPRESSURIZATION CHAMBER EVENT
NEW ALBUM SAUDADE OUT NOW
[July 30, 2014 – Reno, NV] Thievery Corporation travels to Reno on September 2nd for an exclusive live performance at The Grand Sierra Resort during their 2014 Fall Saudade Tour. This show will also feature two special musical guests: house music legend Mark Farina and Dirtwire, which features David Satori of Beats Antique. The extremely special concert is considered the “main event” for Fresh Bakin’s 5th Annual Great Depressurization Chamber. The event gathers over 50 artists from Black Rock City and beyond performing poolside at The Beach, in the Summit Pavilion and latenight for an event that’s become almost as infamous as Burning Man itself.
When they met in the mid-1990s, Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza instantly bonded over their shared passion for bossa nova. Dedicating their 1996 debut ‘Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi’ to bossa nova pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Washington, D.C.-based duo have spent nearly two decades creating boundary-warping, complexly crafted electronic music partly inspired by bossa nova’sintricate rhythms and lush textures. Now, with their seventh studio album ‘Saudade,’ Thievery Corporation present their first release devoted entirely to the Brazilian-born genre that first connected them. “We always try to progress into something different and stretch our musical chops, and taking a whole album to dive into this one sound seemed like a really great way to do that,” says Hilton. Adds Garza: “It’s a bit of a departure for us, but at the same time these are our roots, this is what brought us together. It’s us coming full circle from electronic music back to something organic before we move on to our next chapter.”
Saudade is available through www.thieverycorporation.com, as well as all digital and physical retailers.
Tickets are available now at FreshBakin.com, GrandSierraResort.com , and at the Grand Sierra box office.
