Sequestered episode #64: Thao and The Get Down Stay Down
Originally from Falls Church, Virginia, and now based in San Francisco, the indie rock band led by Thao Nuguyen [pronounced Tao Nu-when] called Thao and The Get Down Stay Down has been thrilling audiences since 2006. They’ve collaborated with Joanna Newsom, Andrew Bird and Mirah, and composed several film soundtracks. Drawing on her Vietnamese heritage and queer identity, Thao makes music that’s a hybrid of folk, soul, hip-hop and much more. Guest host Mark Leviton explores this unique group on the June 15 edition of The Other Side.
