Zoo Animal may have taken the last year and a half away from the spotlight, but Holly Hansen’s minimalist, poetic style has remained among my most-played music choices as it has for the last several years. I was thrilled to hear that Zoo Animal was playing shows again, and even more excited to learn that it was going to be an early show with another local favorite, Fort Wilson Riot, opening.
We were there with our seven-year-old in tow. She was the one in the pirate costume. I love it when we have opportunities to share our love of music with our daughter, even if it did mean that my view of Zoo Animal’s set left something to be desired. Even from a distance, it was a powerful performance.
Later this month, you can hear Zoo Animal get Loud at the Library in St. Paul. I love it when my favorite musicians play at my favorite places. :)
