Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation planned his summer tour months and months ago, with one major gig request: to play in the mountains. That wish was granted when Thievery Corporation headlined the Ride Festival over the weekend in Telluride. But just playing in the mountains wasn't enough. He wanted to experience them, since he is from the flat region of Washington, DC. He planned an extra day to enjoy our state's outdoors, and his agent, Jake Schneider, convinced him and his bandmate, LouLou Ghelichkhani, to spend the day fly fishing. Both musicians caught something -- observe!
