THAO AND THE GET DOWN STAY DOWN AT SXSW 2016 - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX
Plenty more SXSW to get through, but for now one of the more fascinating samples to come out of the week is an eclectic rock band called Thao and The Get Down Stay Down. There is something about Thao and her group that hits all the right powerful spots with seemingly bare structures. She isn't overpowering on it's Rock side, her avant-garde streak is still approachable and fun, this may be the best group I have encountered in this festival that I did not know how to categorize properly. I give you THAO AND THE GET DOWN STAY DOWN!
