    Thao with The Get Down Stay Down are planning a North American tour this fall to support their second full length album, Know Better Learn Faster out on Kill Rock Stars. They've also announced a dual CD preorder plus ticket for a show combo, saving you money. When you purchase the CD today you can also purchase a ticket to the show of your choice, shaving precious dollars off buying each separately. Score!

    Thao and the GDSD made waves last year with their first record We Brave Bee Stings And All, and now they are hoping to get down again. Adam Thompson returns on bass, keys and additional guitar, and Willis Thompson remains the drums and percussion guy. Producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Bill Frisell, Jim James) also remains a faithful participant in the recording of the Down-squad, providing his ears to fine-tune the self proclaimed "more mature, tastefully raucous, subdued and musically adventurous" band. Not to mention a sick roster of guest artists, including Andrew Bird, Eric Earley of Blitzen Trapper, Laura Veirs, Horse Feathers, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, Jenny Conlee of The Decemberists, and Tune-Yards.

    Get down with Thao and company when they roll through your town. Know Better Learn Faster is out 10/13. -joe puglisi
