Published Dec 03, 2012Thao Nguyen recently announced plans to return to her band the Get Down Stay Down for a new album called We the Common. A month after that album comes out on February 5, the group will promote it with a tour of North America.
The outing kicks off in Canada with a show in Vancouver on March 6. After that, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down will dip down into the U.S. and return to our country only once, for a Toronto date on March 27. The currently confirmed schedule wraps up in Los Angeles on April 8.
All of the shows will feature Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside. In a statement on Facebook, Thao wrote, "We are packing up the astronaut ice cream and post card stamps — headed out on tour to see you. New record, different line up, more mature decision making. I can't wait to share new songs with you and relive the old ones."
See the schedule below and scroll past that to watch a teaser video for the tour. It shows Thao having an acoustic jam and eating tomatoes with an elderly musician named Jackie Jones.
