Thievery Corporation's Rob Garza and Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel General Manager Matt Felix.
DUPONT CIRCLE --
Not content with selling out a whole string of shows at the 9:30 Club
this week, GRAMMY Award-nominated Thievery Corporation
also invited fans to join them for a pre-concert party Thursday night at the Renaissance Dupont Circle
A part of the Renaissance hotel chainís popular RLife LIVE performance series, last nightís bash saw over a hundred fans and friends descend upon the lobby lounge of the Dupont location for specially priced cocktails and bites, in addition to a complimentary two-hour long DJ set.
took the musical reigns at 6:00pm and steadily revved the crowd up. But the party didnít really take off until just after 7:00pm when Thieveryís Eric Hilton
and Rob Garza
arrived amidst a sea of flashbulbs and photo requests.
While everyone was invited to attend the pre-concert party, ticketholders to the show that was to follow at the 9:30 Club were also rewarded with signed copies of the groupís latest CD.
And by eveningís end, it was pretty easy to understand why the Districtís music community really is as thick as thieves...
