Seeing one of your favorite bands is a transcendent experience, like seeing your favorite actor play your favorite president. Spoil your senses with this GrouponLive deal to Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation at SpyBar. For $15, you get one general-admission ticket and one drink on Friday, March 8, at 10 p.m. (a $32.99 total value, including all fees).
With enough beats and lyrical sincerity to burrow a worldly hole in any cranial region, Thievery Corporation beats its beat-bleeding heart to the cadence of core members Rob Garza and Eric Hilton. The New York Times describes the duo's sound as "the kind that can bubble in the background on an album or make heads bob on a dance floor," which is convenient considering that the concertgoers will not receive souvenir bobble heads.
When flying solo, Garza's love of nu-disco, boogie, and deep house makes its presence known. Bordering on entrancing thanks to countless, purposeful progressions, Garza’s sets combine the skill associated with Thievery Corporation with his own distinct sound, which he readily attributes to the time he spent with La Santanera in Mexico.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Thumping bass shivers the very girders in the walls of Spy Bar each evening, but the hands behind the music change nightly. On Thursdays, event organizers celebrate local DJs, giving them a chance to pilot the top-notch lights and sound system to fill the venue with pure Chicagoan sound. Fridays expand the border, with the 2 Red Belts organization bringing beatsmiths from across the globe to spin their rhythms. Resident DJs Kalendr and Inphinity tag team Saturday nights, their familiar booth-silhouettes backed by video projections across the walls. Lights flash and sparkle across the ample dance floor from every direction, some even coming from beneath the lip of the neon-lit bars.
