About the Program
Kick off the new season of Sunset Concerts with Thao and the Get Down Stay Down! Led by expressive frontwoman Thao Nguyen, this San Francisco–based band experiments with a range of musical styles, including folk, bluegrass, rock, chamber pop, hip-hop, electronic music, and funk.
Over the last decade, Nguyen has worked with a number of esteemed performers and producers, including Andrew Bird, Mirah, Laura Viers, and Tucker Martine, and she also appeared on the renowned television show Austin City Limits in 2014. Most recently, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down played a live session on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
At the Skirball, hear tracks from the band’s critically acclaimed fourth album, A Man Alive, hailed as “the most deeply introspective, experimental and well-formed release from Thao yet” (Paste).
Arrive early to enjoy a DJ set by Tahl K (Fine Time)!
