Thao returned to Music Hall of Williamsburg, this time with her band, The Get Down Stay Down. Along with The Devil Whale, Thao headlined this show with The Head and the Heart.
I first heard The Head and the Heart via Turntable.fm several months ago and could not pass up the chance to see them live.
Opening band The Devil Whale was fun to watch and listen to. This is lead singer Brinton Jones with drummer Cameron Runyan.

A happy Thao Nguyen covering Smoky Robinson during a truly great and energetic set.
The Head and the Heart lead singer Jonathan Russell. The band sounds as good live as they do recorded (if not better!)

The Head and the Heart closed out their set with my favorite song of theirs "Down in the Valley".
