    Thievery Corporation Kick Off U.S. Tour

    Thievery Corporation began their U.S. tour in Washington, DC, last night with high spirits -- and the energy never waned. The opening song, "Sound the Alarm," which samples dance beats and reggae and dub grooves, set the tone of the three-hour show with a political theme ("Sound the alarm, order the attack, win Babylon back," sings the tune's hook; the band refer to DC as Babylon) and a wall of bass that hit with satisfying force. The set mainly drew songs off their newest album, Radio Retaliation, but included nods to longtime fans with ".38.45" off their 1997 album Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi, and "Illumination" off their 2000 release, The Mirror Conspiracy.
