Thao Nguyen
San Francisco’s Thao And The Get Down Stay Down plus The Fervor will hold court at Zanzabar on October 20. Thao, who sometimes performs solo, works at the corner of indie-folk and experimental psychedelica, which is a strange intersection for a girl with a guitar. Nevertheless, her popularity on the Left Coast continues to rise, particularly among musicians of the same mindset. Her latest record is 2013’s We The Common, her sixth studio album. The last time she was in Louisville was over five years ago, at Skull Alley (most recently Uncle Slayton’s), so it might be tricky to find the few fans who made that show. Or not. Tickets are $15.

New music-related web sites crop up on a regular basis, some of them about Louisville music, but they’re tricky to find, generally requiring a reference from a third source. Today’s new spot is the Probably Not podcast, which is billed as “Probably Not: The Game Show That Solves All Of Your Problems!” Various Louisville bands have been guests, including, most recently Karate Body Records artists The Fervor, Julie Of The Wolves and The Trust.
