Thao & Mirah, Bobby, Led To Sea

When: Sat., June 11, 8:30 p.m. 2011

Only a year after their first live set together at San Francisco's Noise Pop festival, Thao & Mirah now have excellent credentials: John Vanderslice offered up his studio to the Bay Area duo, and tUne-yArDs' Merrill Garbus produced their self-titled debut. But the singer-songwriters used Garbus' backing vocals and dense aesthetic only as a prompt for their unique brand of ditties, which sit somewhere between lust-driven Afro-fits and love-penned rhythmic lullabies. Thao wails from her bongos, and Mirah purrs harmonies at the mic. At once poised and frenetic, their act is one of the most magnetic combos you'll catch on stage this year. With Bobby and Led to Sea.—Marissa Muller
