We saw a lot of music this weekend, but the show that did it the best, and wildly exceeded our already high expectations, was Thao and Mirah at the Black Cat on Friday. What's that have to do with this you say? Well Thao with Get Down Stay Down is former Falls Church native Thao Nguyen's other band and main gig. While the the set on Friday was pulled mostly from Thao and Mirah's self titled debut, they chose to close it out with this ridiculously catchy track from their album We Brave Bee Stings. Our review of the show is coming tomorrow, so until then take this as an example of one of the many reasons that Thao and Mirah's performance last Friday was just so damn good.
