RETROSPECT // THAO & THE GET DOWN STAY DOWN

If you were wise and lucky then you attended Thursday night’s Thao and the Get Down Stay Down‘s sold out Neumos performance. The showroom was packed to the gills with a generally homogenous audience sporting striped or plaid shirts and a smattering of thick-rimmed glasses. Many PBRs were had. The energy was palpable and the(…)

RETROSPECT // DEEP SEA DIVER

Reviewed by Zach Frimmel // Photos by Amber ZBitnoff The socialites were out, which meant the ornate tights, wide-rim, turtle frames and all things sartorial were in full effect.

Luckily, a North Carolina-based band like the Bowerbirds finds time to make a jaunt(…)
