Music: Zoo Front, Bill Arnold Thurs., Aug. 5, at 8 PM

The indie rock group Zoo Front and singer-songwriter Bill Arnold play Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, Aug. 5. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.

The last year has been a busy one for Zoo Front. The new CD Red Stereo Dress is the beginning of a new era for the band, with Nancie Tief making her singing and songwriting debut. Adding to the fun, we adopted a new working philosophy we call ABM – “ambient background mischief”. The idea is to add a subliminal track to each song that somehow fills out the sound in a way that defies definition. We hope you like the results.
