Bumbershoot, Day One - Thao (Part II)

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down's second set of the day, this time at the Fountain Lawn. This was my first set of the day outdoors among the Bumbershoot gen pop, and I'm glad I saw her Music Lounge performance earlier, both for the intimacy of the small room and because the first three songs of the set were seriously marred by way-too-heavy bass in the PA System.  But, then, I'm glad that I saw her Fountain Lawn performance because she had a larger band, including violinist Alex Guy, whom I had recognized as Led To Sea from her performance at The Earl in 2010 opening for Laura Veirs, and a two-man horn section, and the sound got back into balance after the third song.
