Returning to the Bay Area after a busy year of touring throughout North America and Europe in support of their latest album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World, The Decemberists will ring in 2016 at The Masonic in San Francisco.
Four years separated the release of What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World and their chart-topping 2011 album The King Is Dead, and Rolling Stone remarked that The Decemberists were “a band refreshed, enriching its trademark folk rock.” The New York Times noted that the new album “strikes a note of pop concision and maturity.”
The New Year’s Eve event will be the band’s first headlining show in San Francisco proper since 2008.
Growing up in Falls Church, VA, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down‘s Thao Nguyen first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and began performing in a pop country duo in high school. She spent most of her 20s touring, supporting one critically acclaimed album after another. She’s worked with a laundry list of vaunted artists including Andrew Bird, Mirah, Laura Viers, and producer Tucker Martine. She even toured the US with the nationally syndicated NPR radio program Radiolab. Thao’s most recent album, We The Common, was described by The New Yorker as “music that makes you move from your bones out…[it’s] keenly intelligent and original” and in November 2014, she performed on the world famous television show “Austin City Limits.” She is currently working on a new album which will be released in early 2016.
