Thao & the Get Down Stay Down
Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside
Before the Brave
March 2, 2013
Great American Music Hall // Noise Pop 2013
Better than: DJ sets.
Noise Pop has been doing its homework. Saturday's show at the Great American Music Hall was a thoughtful billing, with a variety in the openers that helped to set the stage for a multitalented headliner. It was as if each opener was an ingredient to make up all of the flavors of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. The recipe of the night: Kacey Johansing's feminine ballads, plus Before the Brave's Americana twang, plus Sallie Ford's rock 'n' roll, equals Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. The evening was made up of new songs, as all but one of the groups released a new album in February.
