Thao Nguyen @ Northside Taven (Cincy) – 7/20

One of my favorite artists of the year is coming back to Cincinnati…Thao Nguyen with the Get Down Stay Down is playing a FREE show at the Northside Tavern on July 20th with Tuna Yard.   Thao released my top album of January, We Brave Bee Stings and All to significant praises in the blogosphere & received a 7.7 from Pitchfork.  Also, I had the chance to see Thao (review) with another of my absolute favorite bands…Why? whose Alopecia might just edge Thao out as the best album of the year so far.  In my view, Thao has the lyrical beauty and emotion of Cat Power with the energy of Feist, regardless of how shy she might appear on stage.  The show is on a Sunday night & space is limited to 150 people, so get there reasonably early…
