Music: Zoo Front plays Thurs., Apr. 18, with special guest Mara & the Dead Batteries

Indie rock group Zoo Front plays Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, Apr. 18. Mara & The Dead Batteries will be a special guest on some songs.  The show starts at 8 PM and the cover is a sliding scale of $5-10 (pay what you can in that range).

The last couple of years have been busy ones for Zoo Front. Their CD Red Stereo Dress marked the beginning of a new era for the band, with Nancie Tief making her singing and songwriting debut. Adding to the fun, they adopted a new working philosophy they 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. The personnel is Ed Ekendu (Guitar), Nancie Tief (Guitar),  Lisa Tonner (Drums) and Ju Dee Luna (bass).

Laura from Mara & The Dead Batteries will be sitting in on cello on a couple of the songs.
