Thievery Corporation, Live at the Washington Monument, 24th September 2005

This bootleg was recorded during Thieverys performance at the "Operation Ceasefire" concert, a show put on to protest the US's invasion of Iraq. The band at this time were making many political statments in their music, having made several songs with such themes on that years album The Cosmic Game, including the song Revolution Solution which featured alternative rock oddball Perry Farrell.

Thievery Corporation, for those who don't know, are a duo from Washington, who over a few drinks decided to make music featuring their Brasilian, Indian, lounge jazz and dance influences, resulting in a very pleasing dub/trip-hop sound. As they're primarily DJs they employ a wide range of singers on their albums, by the time of the previously mentioned 2005 offering, their stature had grown enough to employ the talents of David Byrne and Wayne Coyne aswell as Perry.
