Thao & the Get Down Stay Down | Castro Theatre | April 29
Thao and the Get Down Stay Down will be performing at the one and only Castro Theatre on Tuesday, April 29th. This will be a one-of-a-kind show, as their performance is part of the San Francisco International Film Festival. The band will play live with a mixture of films from the silent era. One of the silent films being shown is, The Pawnshop with Charlie Chaplin. Also on the playbill is, The Life and Death of 9413: A Hollywood Extra. Original videos made by Thao will be showcased as well. One of her creations was made especially for this event. Animations by Harry Smith, along with classic newsreels, will also accompany the live music. This should be one hell of an event, too cool for school, so they're having it at the Castro. Maybe we'll see you there.
