This past Saturday night, we (me n' my straps) wandered into a sound check at The Echo by request from KamranV who was taping the show that night. That's when I met "Thao with the Get Down Stay Down".
First of all I will say that Thao (lead singer and guitarist) is incredibly talented and personable. From a simple soundcheck it was obvious that this act is going places. The song she checked just so happened to have played on KCRW a couple days earlier. I got out of the car before they named the band, so I never actually knew who it was until the show. Now luckily I have their CD, 'Know Better Learn Faster', so I can listen to it whenever!
So check out "Thao with the Get Down Stay Down".
I'm definitely their new biggest fan.
to the peace.
