Mirah & Thao Nguyen with The Most of All

"Thao Nguyen keeps popping up, and each time she appears with a new handle. You may know her by her full given name, but you've more likely seen her presented as "Thao and the Get Down Stay Down," perhaps simply as the familiar "Thao," and in this most recent incarnation on a partnered tour with pal and fellow established performer Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (better known as just "Mirah"), as "Thao and Mirah with The Most of All"...

...When Thao's not running around the stage or pseudo head-banging, she has an entrancing, distinctive hip sway as she jostles her weight from one toe to the other, bewitchingly marching in place. Mirah sports more of a bobbing movement, and cutely jams along to her own beats. Thao has a really distinctive, almost dissonant sound - her vocals weave away from straightforward melodies, but they draw you in rather than push you away. Mirah's vocals are a little cleaner and her albums a little more produced, but both ladies are fantastic live performers and as a duo toy with fresh ways to revamp each others' existing harmonies." [They Will Rock You]

That review comes from the June 23rd show at the Middle East in Cambridge. One night later Thao and Mirah brought the show to Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The Thursday night Brooklyn performance was part of the Northside Festival and also had Chica Vas and These United States on the bill. More pictures from that one below...

These United States are really good. Can't figure out why they're not more popular.

the opening band (not the girls on drums) was HORRIBLE. like, laughingly bad, if it hadn't been imposed on me for an hour.

These United States are the worst of all worlds--a rock band without the swagger and an indie band without the irony.
