Zoo Animal killed all the zookeepers and let the red pandas free. Last Thursday at C-Haus, the raw sound that combines Kurt Cobain’s pain with sweltering lyrical poetry from front woman Holly Newsom kept the audience in a haggard swagger. Visually, Zoo kept the cages down by owning the stage and collapsing into and exploding out of themselves. The drummer (from the band Tarlton) pounced his sticks upon metal discs, placed on the tom, making the strikes twinge with compact zest. No need to be intoxicated to relate to the modest sound of Zoo Animal. Newsom stuck around to meet admirers and new friends, encouraging everyone to pursue every creative endeavor. Too bad Zoo Animal didn’t have a second set to unleash. They inspire everyone to let their raw inner selves out.
