Thievery Corporation

This Washington, D.C.-based band consists of just two members: Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, who met in the 1990s and bonded over a shared love of bossa nova. Known for their musical exploration over the past three decades, the band's seventh studio album "Saudade," is "a bit of a departure for us, but at the same time these are our roots, this is what brought us together. It's us coming full circle from electronic music back to something organic before we move on to our next chapter," Gazza said on the band's Facebook page. See them Friday at Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. Show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets start at $44.50 on ticketmaster.com.

'Crimes of the Heart'

Three southern sisters get together while their grandfather is dying. One is an "old maid" at 30; another has returned to her hometown after a failed singing career; and the youngest is out on bail after shooting her husband in the stomach. The story of how they move past their situations is "so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended," according to the Firehouse Theater Company website. "Crimes of the Heart" is at The John Hand Theater in Denver through April 29; 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, $20-$23; firehousetheatercompany.com.
