Thievery Corporation on Outernational Music Tour

Thievery Corporation will headline and curate the Outernational Music Tour; comprised of six select live dates across the United States beginning June 20th in San Francisco and ending in their home town of Washington DC on June 28th. As long-time aficionados and purveyors of blunted world grooves and electronica, a sound aesthetic they simply dub “outernational,” Thievery Corporation have invited an array of like-minded musicians and friends to join them on tour: from the Brazilian roots rhythms of Seu Jorge, Argentinean soul of Federico Aubele, Venezuelan funk of Los Amigos Invisibles, and the Brazilian bossa nova of long time Thievery Corporation collaborator Bebel Gilberto, to the left-field hip-hop, rock, and electro sounds of Gnarls Barkley, TV on the Radio, and Ladytron. Reflecting the Outernational Music Tour’s global outlook, Thievery Corporation will be joined at concerts by representatives of the UN World Food Program (WFP), the world’s largest humanitarian organization for which Thievery is a celebrity partner. They will be present at the shows to raise awareness among concert-goers about WFP’s fight against global hunger and the catastrophic effects on the hungry poor of the global food crisis.
