    Thao with the Get Down Stay Down were fantastic.

    They played almost everything I would have added to the set list, but weren't just a direct copy of their (amazing) recorded versions. Damn, what a great night!

    I enjoyed the other groups (especially for a first listen), though I definitely liked Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers better than Sister Suvi... the later's guitarist kept saying something about being sick and unable to play his guitar properly. Maybe that's why they sounded a little sloppy??

    I kept looking around the room at everyone dancing and having fun, thinking that that was happening at venues all over Boston/Cambridge... love it.
