I believe this is the first photo essay for Rock Club. Okay, it's really just a cheesy slideshow but I'm calling it a photo essay, okay? Fine.
Thao and The Get Down Stay Down put on another bumpin' show here in Austin. This is the third time we've seen them since April. Previously, they had opened for Xiu Xiu and Rilo Kiley but now they're doing their own headlining tour. They're like the The Jeffersons - movin' on up. They roll into DC on Thursday, August 14th for a show at the Black Cat. Their last two DC shows sold out so don't wait to get tickets. Considering this your warning.
After the concert they packed up their gear and crashed at our house. As you can see from the pictures we took a morning trip to Barton Springs for a quick dip. Unfortunately, the main swimming area was closed. No problem. We hopped in the water a little further down stream (along with the dogs and homeless people). Afterwards we headed back home for Mrs. Jumbo Slice's famous breakfast buffet. Mmm, delicious. Shortly after we finished breakfast, and after a few loads of laundry, the gang loaded up and headed to Dallas.
Best of luck to Thao, Willis, Adam, and Dempsey. Come back and visit anytime!
