Photographing a Thievery Corporation concert has been on my Bucket List for a while now... and this year I was finally able to cross it off - not once, not twice, but three times (and in three different states)! This was an amazing year to cross this off, too, because it is was their 20th anniversary tour! I can't believe I have been a fan of their music for 20 years already. It seems like just yesterday that I listened to them for the first time when I rented minidiscs containing their songs while living in Japan.
Back in May, I photographed them at Red Rocks, my all time favorite concert venue. In August, I photographed them in Maryland at the Hot August Music Festival. And, this December, I photographed them at the Fillmore in Philadelphia.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from their December show. I also photographed their opening band, The Reminders. The Reminders were incredible - they were so full of energy and positivity! I'm definitely a new fan, and highly recommend that you check them out! And, if you haven't heard of Thievery Corporation yet, you definitely need to check out their work as well. They put on one of the best live shows I have ever seen - every show is a different experience and is performed with unmatched passion, energy, and style.
Thank you for the opportunities, Thievery! And, thank you for providing many of the songs to the soundtrack of my life over the past 20 years. I'm looking forward to many more shows to come. :)
