Thao @ Merc

Kyle photographed them Monday night at Terminal 5 (they were opening for Rilo Kiley) and he did it again last night at Mercury Lounge (a headlining show added at the last minute) (June 4, 2008).

In addition to playing music, Thao told a funny story about how some guy in a beret led her to a much too expensive internet cafe during the day. Then after checking her email she walked back to mercury lounge and kept smelling fish and vinegar. When she got to mercury lounge her bandmates pointed out that it was bird poop on her face that smelled like that, not the whole city. She cleaned it off and moved on.
