On Tuesday night, Boston’s House of Blues was fortunate enough to host the kickoff concert of Thievery Corporation’s 2018 cross-country tour. Touring their latest LP Treasures From the Temple, the album showcases their unique electronic spin on the spirit and power of Reggae music, once again proving their unprecedented ability to combine sound with sentiment. The album is a deep exploration of the soul of Reggae, the perfect pairing to their 2017 studio album, The Temple of I & I, which was itself a milestone for the group.
The band Coven was formed in Chicago in the late 1960s, fronted by lead singer Jinx Dawson (now the only original member left in the band). Previously banned from performing in Boston, the group played their first show on their All Hallows High Ritual portion of the Magickal Chaos Tour at Sonia in Cambridge on Friday, October 26.
