Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 
[ECCENTRIC FOLK POP] The thing about Thao and the Get Down Stay Down is the music almost goes where you would expect it to—and then it doesn’t. Herein lies the dare-you-not-to-smile charm of the band, which released its third full-length album, We the Common, early last year. On it you’ll find a smorgasbord of different styles, with elements of jazz, country and folk pop mixed with quirky keyboards, bursts of various horns, bright banjo and sometimes-heavy electric guitar. While all these sounds have the potential to become too much to handle at once, they somehow manage to remain well-placed spotlights on the creative lyrics and sweet, emotive vocal delivery from Thao Nguyen that made the band famous in the first place.
