Headliner: Zoo Animal (Reunion Show and Birthday Bash!)
Middle: Brianna Kocka "Dreamlife" Record Release
Opener: Under Violet
A one-time one off show came together in mere minutes when Zoo Animal former drummer Thom Burton said he'd be in town for a show Holly Hansen was playing. She asked if by chance he'd play and his affirmative led Holly to ask Tim, who agreed it would be fun to do it. And BAM, it was booked. This one time chance to see the formative line-up will surely delight.
Join Brianna Kocka as she releases her long awaited new album, "Dreamlife."
Co-produced by Holly Hansen, "Dreamlife" is a study in Kocka's attempt to escape the heaviness of loss, and the pressure of confinement. The album’s songs are both autobiographical and fantasy, documents of facing phantoms, and fleeing them. "Dreamlife" dedicates itself to souls who parted ways—former selves, loves—and invents other worlds altogether, reimaginings of how things happened. The album is a nonlinear narrative of those reckonings and revisions, a pleading with time.
Evoking the instrumentation and mournful harmonies of Americana pioneers Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss, as well as the avant-folk sounds of artist Sam Phillips, the collection of songs were tracked by a live ensemble in Minneapolis, MN in 2017.
Under Violet is led by Sara Bischoff (Web of Sunsets/Heavy Deeds), joined by members of Web of Sunsets and Invisible Boy. Inspired by a mix of Mazzy Star and vintage country, the music is dreamy and spacious, creating a folk-rock glow for projecting minimal and dark portraits.
