Thao Nguyen

Feature

Friday, May 29, 2009

At just 24, she put out one of 2008's best indie rock records, We Brave Bee Stings and All and she's touring the country now with her band. She grew up in Arlington, Virginia, where her mother owns a coin laundromat and dry cleaning business. We sent Jesse Dukes to meet up with Thao and her mother at the laundromat to find out how she grew into a rock star.
