Thao & the Get Down Stay Down Roll Out North American Tour, Play Vancouver, Toronto
Published Dec 03, 2012Thao Nguyen recently announced plans to return to her band the Get Down Stay Down for a new album called We the Common. A month after that album comes out on February 5, the group will promote it with a tour of North America.
The outing kicks off in Canada with a show in Vancouver on March 6. After that, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down will dip down into the U.S. and return to our country only once, for a Toronto date on March 27. The currently confirmed schedule wraps up in Los Angeles on April 8.
All of the shows will feature Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside. In a statement on Facebook, Thao wrote, "We are packing up the astronaut ice cream and post card stamps — headed out on tour to see you. New record, different line up, more mature decision making. I can't wait to share new songs with you and relive the old ones."
See the schedule below and scroll past that to watch a teaser video for the tour. It shows Thao having an acoustic jam and eating tomatoes with an elderly musician named Jackie Jones.
