A.M. STRYKER ALBUM RELEASE + HOLLY HANSEN(OF ZOO ANIMAL)
$5 - 11:00 PM
10:30pm doors/11pm showtime
A veteran of the Minneapolis music scene, A.M. Stryker has lent his creative talents to such projects at The Sprit Of ‘76, Satellite Voices, Deleter and We Are The Willows. In his first solo release, A.M. Stryker explores a softer, more painful side of himself. The songs reflect on the shared experiences with his wife of moving to another country and losing a loved one who’s thousands of miles away. A story that ultimately ended in a divorce and a journey back home. With a vocal styling reminiscent of of artists like Nick Drake and Jose Gonzalez, The Lion’s Share explores the depth of emotion that comes with love, loss, divorce and death. Underscored by gently woven guitars and strings, A.M. Stryker crafts a debut release that is stunning and heartfelt.
Hometown grunge band Zoo Animal is one of the tightest acts in the Twin Cities. At the helm is Holly Hansen (formerly Holly Newsom), who tempts audiences with soft opening chords only to later unleash feisty guitar riffs and raw energy. Hansen’s lyrics are tender, tough and occasionally tinged with rage. -Vitamn
