Thievery Corporation at the Black Cat For a Great Cause

By David Malitz

It's always nice to see the town rally around a good cause, and that's exactly what's happening in regards to Callum Robbins. Fritz recently wrote about the tragic story of the 1-year-old son of J. Robbins and Janet Morgan, two-thirds of the local indie rock band Channels, and his battle with spinal muscular atrophy. Robbins was born with the debilitating disease, which currently has no cure. It is often fatal in infants and a best-case scenario has him looking at a lifetime in a wheelchair. To make matters worse, Robbins and Morgan aren't exactly in the position to pay the exorbitant medical costs. This has led to fundraisers across the country, including one we wrote about a few weeks ago in Nightlife Agenda.

The latest benefit, just announced earlier today, is sure to shed even more light on this situation. Thievery Corporation -- the homegrown, internationally renowned kings of downtempo electronic music -- will be headlining a Callum Robbins Family Fund show on Sunday, March 11, at the Black Cat. That Thievery Corporation is playing the Black Cat at all is news itself. After all, this is the same group that sold out four nights at the larger 9:30 club back in December, and that was at $35 per ticket. Tickets for this show are just $15, and Thievery will be joined by opening acts Head-Roc (the always outspoken mayor of D.C. hip-hop) and Antelope (Dischord Records post-rockers). Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 9) at 5 p.m. They will disappear very quickly, so have your clicking finger and three-digit security code ready to go.
