9AM Thursday 3.14.13 – Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

Just as one starts to get weary of bands that are “folk-inspired,” along comes a band like Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, something that takes their folk inspirations somewhere entirely different and new. Fronted by Thao Nguyen, the San Francisco-based band takes an entire assortment of genres to create their specific brand of pop/rock/folk. Nguyen’s song writing is at time messy, convoluted, and just all around eclectic, but these things are its strengths rather than its weaknesses. The unpredictable nature of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down is what makes the band so great.
