Plants and Animals, Little Scream and Zoo Animal at the Entry

Three amazing bands played at the 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis on Saturday night. To start the night off you had Zoo Animal. This band is a wonderful trio featuring Holly Newsom as their lead singer, who kills on vocals every time she opens her mouth. Their music is soul wrenching. You cannot be in the same room and not feel connected to them. Warning: this is not music for upbeat elitists who want to jump and dance around – no, this is more about connecting with people on a level that only music can reach. Not only does Newsom sing songs people can relate to, the band actually interacts with people after their set. As soon as they got off stage they were behind their merch table talking with fans and signing autographs. It’s safe to say that success has not made them think they’re better than anyone else in the room.

I didn’t know how anyone could follow Zoo Animal’s performance, but Little Scream came out and dominated the stage. Their music is very calm and relaxing, but also relatable. LS owned the stage and the crowd, as they hit every note perfectly. In-between songs they were just normal people tuning their instruments, and making jokes with people in the audience. I think my favorite part of the night is when their guitar player asked everyone to fill in the awkward gap near the stage, “We can feel you, we just can’t see you!” The thing that set this band apart from the others on the bill was their secret weapon – a flute player. Sadly, it was her last night with them, but she brought a unique tribal feel to the music & will be missed.

The final band of the night, Plants and Animals, had two tough acts to follow. I have to say they certainly didn’t let the crowd down as they claimed the stage and went for the gold. Their music is different from the first two bands & is the kind of music you can’t help but get up and dance to. This is music that makes a room of strangers feel like they’ve been friends for years & brings the passion back from the mainstream to remind us what’s important. Plants and Animals brought the heat with every guitar strum – and even though they were the headliners, they still interacted with the crowd and acted just like one of your best guy friends. I can’t even put into words the vibe they gave the audience, but I can guarantee no one left the show disappointed.
