Thao And The Get Down Stay Down Austin City Limits

The summer is beginining to edge away, and with Bonnaroo, Pitchfork and SXSW long-gone, music fans would be forgiven for packing up their tents and looking ahead for 2014.

But fear not, there's still plenty of festivals left for 2013, featuring some of the biggest and most diverse line-ups of the year. Austin City Limits probably represents the biggest of the lot, and although the line-up is one of the most high profile of the year - with Kendrick Lamar, Depeche Mode and Kings of Leon - there's also some up-and-coming acts and undiscovered gems ready to impress. They include Fidlar, Savages and Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down is the stage moniker of Thao Nguyen, the singer-songwriter from Falls Church, VA, who first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and is now considered to be one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in the United States.
