Thao with the Get Down Stay Down at SXSW 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Thao with the Get Down Stay Down are scheduled to open for The Head & the Heart on their tour which initially included NYC shows at MHOW (9/26) and Bowery ballroom (9/27). The Head and the Heart have since added a third NYC show that Thao and her band won't play, but they will play their own NYC show the same night (9/28) at Mercury Lounge. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/5) at noon with an AmEx pre-sale starting Wednesday (8/3) at noon.
